The newest version of WordPress added a checkbox beneath the comment section for users to choose if they wanted their information to be remembered the next time they want to add a comment. This checkbox is not showing on my site. Both WordPress and the theme have the most recent versions. WordPress indicates that in this situation, it is likely the theme overriding the command to add the box. Please correct this in the next update.June 10, 2018 at 03:47 UTC - Views: 44 #54928

I have version 4.05 of Weaver but the GDPR compliance checkbox is not showing or have I missed doing something?August 18, 2018 at 21:14 UTC - Views: 37 #56074scramblerModerator
Are you speaking of the new privacy page found in Dashboard > Settings > Privacy ?August 18, 2018 at 21:25 UTC - Views: 46 #56075
The theme does not do anything to change how WP handles the privacy checkbox unless you’ve used custom CSS to hide it.
This is a new site so no custom CSS has been created at all. The privacy page has been created and the link appears as it should in the footer. Like the original poster’s query, in the comments section of the post, there is the comment field, name, email and web site fields but there is no checkbox. From another site: “With WordPress 4.9.6, the default WordPress comment form will now show a comment privacy opt-in checkbox. All WordPress themes that use the default WordPress comment form will now automatically show this checkbox.”
Does Weaver not use the default WP comment form?August 19, 2018 at 05:29 UTC - Views: 28 #56081
Weaver uses the standard comment form.
You must also check the “Show comments cookies opt-in checkbox.” option on the Settings -> Discussion menu.
And it seems if you are logged in already, the opt-in checkbox doesn’t show. (I can’t confirm this 100%, but it seems to work this way)August 19, 2018 at 05:59 UTC - Views: 16 #56082
Bingo! (Perhaps I should say Doh). That’s it. Wonderful, thank you.
