Using iubenda on WordPress.com


Since WordPress.com doesn’t allow the addition of JavaScript into its pages, we’re going to use the direct link option provided by the generator. These are the simple steps you need to take.

Note:

If you are using the more customizable self hosted version of WordPress, read How to use iubenda on a WordPress website.

Get your privacy policy link

You can find the link in your privacy policy’s settings and add it in the appropriate place. You can also find and change the integration options at any time by going into the “Integration” tab within your privacy policy.

Once you’re in, you must select Direct link as shown below:

In order to add the iubenda privacy policy link to your WordPress.com website, we’re going to use the links widget. Links widgets can essentially be added all over the design you’re using with links going practically anywhere you want them.

Hook the privacy policy link up to the links widget

Now, that you have your privacy policy link, add it to your links widget in the footer of your site. The fact that your privacy policy is in the footer of the page makes sure that it is visible, no matter which page of your site is being accessed. Like so (image of the current WordPress.com default theme):

This is how you’ll accomplish this.

In your WP admin in the sidebar tap on creating a new link:

In particular, the important steps involved are:

  • Name your privacy policy “Privacy Policy”
  • Add the link taken from the iubenda generator dashboard
  • Add it to a category called something like About, if you don’t have it, create it now

and then

Save the link.

Once that is done, the last step involved is to hook up this link category with your footer. For this, find the Appearance link in your admin and then navigate to Widgets. In this window you should now see the footer widget area. This is where we need to place the category containing our links.

Save and you’re done. You now have a iubenda privacy policy on your WordPress.com site.
