Did you know that ProPhoto 7 has built in features to help you get your site compatible with GDPR?
Over the last few months ProPhoto has released several new features to help Europeans stay up to date with GDPR using ProPhoto 7. We’ve curated a few ways to make your website completely GPDR friendly with your ProPhoto site.
Below, you’ll find some of the things ProPhoto has added in the recent months.
- New checkbox elements to ProPhoto forms.
- You can now totally disable social media network support by going to settings > site settings in ProPhoto 7.
- Ability to delete entries from your contact form logs.
- Comments now have an optional consent checkbox.
ProPhoto version 7.3.2 or higher is required to fully use all the features, so make sure you’ve updated to the latest version!
Creating a Policy
Adding your policy to WordPress
Adding your policy to ProPhoto 7
Now that you’ve assigned your layout to the page, visit the page in your browser and click customize. Typically it would be something like: www.yoursitename.com/privacy-policy
You can of course always go to WordPress > Pages in WordPress to view any page, without typing it into your browser, or if you’re already in the customizer, just click the pages dropdown at the top and select it from the list to view and customize it.
- Typically your design will have a few ready made blocks for you to add. Simply drag and drop them to your layout to get started. In our designs, we always include basic building blocks like “Menu/Logo” blocks, header blocks, and footer blocks.
- If you’re starting from scratch with an all blank design, you’ll need to create those first before adding them, and if you purchased a premium designs most of them will come with those blocks completed already.
Adding a consent option to your contact form
The last step is adding a consent checkbox to your ProPhoto contact form.
- If you haven’t already, create a contact form layout and add your contact form module to the layout. If you purchased a design, it will come with a contact layout already.
- Click the settings icon for the contact form module.
- Now click “Add form element”.
Once it adds it, you’ll want to change the type to “checkbox”
- In the options field, you’ll want to change it to “Yes” and “No” as your two options you want users to choose from. Alternatively, you could also use “I agree” and only have one option instead.
- You’ll also want to check the “required field?” box to make it a required option.
Next, you’ll want to add your link to your page in the label field. To do that, you can easily just copy and paste the code we have below, changing the url out for your own link and then just paste it into the label field.
You can see our exact settings below.
After saving, you’ll have something that looks similar to this.
To turn on ProPhoto 7’s cookie consent for WordPress comments, navigate to ProPhoto > Settings > Comments.
There, you’ll have an option to choose to show an opt in to cookie storage which you can enable. *This option only shows for non logged in users to your website.
First, in ProPhoto 7, go to Settings > Copyright Area > Copyright
There, you can add your own copyright footer text. I’ve made it simple so you can just copy and paste the one below.
This is just the beginning of new and exciting features being added to 7 to better help you run your business smoothly and efficiently. If you’d like for ProPhoto to add more features in the future, feel free to get in touch with them for suggestions.
