    Where to put a cookies consent widget?

    I'm no expert on WP theme development, but I can't find anywhere to put a cookies consent widget (I was going to use the one from Jetpack). I tried the footer, but it didn't seem to work properly.

    Any ideas?

    Cookie Control, Cookie Notice and GDPR Cookie Consent are three WordPress plugins I use on various websites - they should all be able to deal with getting consent for cookies, but they aren't WordPress widgets. In general I have them set up so that they open up when someone visits the website, and once they have accepted or rejected cookies then it disappears or minimises the cookie consent. You'll also need to review your privacy policy and make sure it is up to date and compliant with GDPR.

    Thanks, Keith
    I should have been more explicit.

    I have used the Jetpack widget on a number of other sites and generally, it just works. Our group sitehas just been updated to use the new scout branded theme and I canít see a decent place to put a cookie module.
