These scripts can be blocked by entering the source into the Custom Script boxes in the plugin console or by using the manual wrapping method illustrated in the example below and (in more detail) in this help post
The Custom Scripts field makes it easy for you to block scripts inserted into the page directly from within the plugin console. This greatly reduces the need for direct edits to the site’s code.
Here’s how to do it:
Using these fields are pretty straightforward. Simply enter the script or iframe src attribute you’d like to block.
connect.socialwebsite.net/en_US/track.js into the scripts field.
Let’s say you wanted to block scripts inserted into the page via the following iframe
<iframe width="1280" height="720" src="https://www.videowebsite.com/embed/xxFhMChxx" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>
What you’ll need to enter into the iframe field would
videowebsite.com/embed/xxFhMChxx) to ensure that all scripts coming from the actual source are blocked.
This method requires you to directly modify your site’s code. You’ll need to go into the relevant section of your site’s code and add the scripts to be blocked as explained below.
For example a conversion pixel for Google Ads would be handled this way:
If you’ve enabled the per-category consent feature you’ll need to assign the purpose. Resuming the previous example, being part of the “Targeting & Advertising” purpose (id 5):
If there are HTML / IMG / IFRAME elements, you will need to do it this way:
<!--IUB-COOKIE-BLOCK-START--> <iframe src="... <img src="... <!--IUB-COOKIE-BLOCK-END-->
To stop automatic parsing/replacing the iframe/scripts that contain a defined src:
Shortcodes are available for elements installed directly within WordPress posts (as opposed to elements integrated at the template level – example footer.php):
If you’re using or planning to use Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) to load your web pages faster on mobile, you might be wondering how to set up your WordPress site in a way that allows you to collect cookie consent and avoid penalties. It requires some work, but luckily, iubenda can help: in fact, our Cookie and Consent Solution plugin for WordPress is fully compatible with AMP.
For a step-by-step guide (complete with sample codes, a demo and WordPress tips) and more information on how to block cookies before user consent on AMP, read How to integrate iubenda Cookie Solution with Google AMP (WordPress method included).
You’ve enabled the Google AMP support, but got an error message when you auto-generate the AMP configuration file? The cause is a problem with the “templates” folder permissions. Here’s how to fix it:
For API calls and xmlrpc we suggest the following parameter
?iub_no_parse=1: this will place the iubenda script in a disactivated state and therefore avoids all parsing/replacing operations.
We often provide updated versions of our plugin which are unstable during the testing phase as Beta versions are.
To install a Beta version of the plugin, the first thing to do is install an external plugin called “WP Rollback”, which allows you to select an unofficial version of our plugin.
Please note: WP Rollback requires a WordPress version above 4.0.
As for other plugins, you can install WP Rollback by accessing the Plugin area in your WordPress admin panel and clicking on “Add new”; from here you can search for “WP Rollback” and install it.
After the installation and activation, it will be necessary to go back to the page in which all the installed plugins are listed. Here you’ll notice that “Rollback” will have appeared next to every entry.
All that needs to be done now is to look for the “iubenda Cookie Solution” plugin and click on the “Rollback” entry. Here you’ll find all the different versions of the plugin; the version currently in use will be labelled “installed version”, while the Beta versions will be labeled as such.
To install and test the Beta version of the plugin, simply click on the Beta entry you wish to use. This will cause the current version of the Plugin to be overwritten by the Beta version; to revert the process, the same process will have to be undertaken, the difference being the selecting of the previous stable version and not the Beta one.
To signal a bug please email us and provide a clear and detailed description of the problem.
It’s always useful to attach the debug information provided by WordPress along with your request for support. To access the debug information, you must open the WordPress installation folder and look for the file named wp-config.php.
Once inside, please look for the following line:
Modify it to:
Once the file saved, open a page on your WordPress and the debug information will start to appear. Keep our plugin active and send us any errors or messages shown by WordPress.
