Recently I released an update to CAOS, implementing new options for GDPR Compliance. Shortly afterwards questions started coming in. One question that I think deserves extra attention is: is there an option in CAOS to enable opt-out for Google Analytics? Well, the short answer is: Yes! But let me show you how its done.
Since the 25th of May, our (online) lives have been blessed with a new and improved GDPR. You might’ve noticed my shiny new Cookie Notice! For novice users it raised a lot of questions. Because as a law-abiding citizen, what the hell do I have to do to keep a good, law-abiding website? If you’re a Google Analytics user, look no further. Today I’m going to show you how you can use CAOS (and all of its locally hosted analytics.js goodness!) to make your WordPress-blog GDPR-proof.
There are plenty of plugins for WordPress that allow you to add social share buttons to your Posts and Pages. Usually, these plugins are bloated. They require a lot of CSS-overrides to make it fit with your theme’s design. Some even slow your site down, because they’re not coded well or are packed with a bunch of options you don’t need. Well, to hell with code-bloat! I want your site to be fast. Today I’m going to show you a really simple way to add your own social share buttons to your WordPress blog.
