Implementing EU User Consent Policy in Thesis 2+ WordPress Theme

As mentioned in Implementing EU User Consent Policy for Google AdSense post, AdSense user has to notify EU user on the use of cookies. We already have the code to implement this but how to implement if you are using WordPress Thesis 2+ WordPress theme?

In order to implement EU User Consent Policy in Thesis 2+ WordPress Theme, we have to add a Custom Hook Code in either /wp-content/thesis/master.php or /wp-content/thesis/skins/skin-name/custom.php file.

Copy the following code in the custom file. Bear in mind that this code will only work if you are using Cloudflare service for your domain & enable IP Geolocation in the specific domain.

/* EU User Consent Policy */
function eu_user() {
	$country_code = $_SERVER["HTTP_CF_IPCOUNTRY"];

	$europe = array('EU', 'AT', 'BE', 'BG', 'CY', 'HR', 'CZ', 'DK', 'EE', 'FI', 'FR', 'DE', 'GR', 'HU', 'IE', 'IT', 'LV', 'LT', 'LU', 'MT', 'NL', 'PL', 'PT', 'RO', 'SK', 'SI', 'ES', 'SE', 'GB', 'AL', 'MK', 'ME', 'RS', 'TR', 'BA', 'XK');

	if(in_array($country_code, $europe)) { ?>
		<!-- Begin Cookie Consent plugin by Silktide - -->
		<script type="text/javascript">
		 window.cookieconsent_options = {"message":"This website uses cookies to ensure you get the best experience on our website","dismiss":"Got it!","learnMore":"More info","link":null,"theme":"dark-bottom"};
		<script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script>
		<!-- End Cookie Consent plugin -->
add_action('hook_before_html', 'eu_user');

PHP Code in Footer Attribution of Thesis 2+ WordPress Theme

In Thesis 2+ WordPress theme, if you need to have PHP Code in Footer Attribution, you need to add a code in Thesis 2+ Custom Function. You may need this to automatically change the year in the copyright of the footer instead of manually change it every year. The best thing is the code will apply to all post, page or archive page.

In Thesis 2+ theme, there are 2 ways to do it. If you want the Custom Function to apply to all Thesis 2+ Skins, edit “/wp-content/thesis/master.php” file. However if you want the function to apply to only individual Skin, edit “/wp-content/thesis/skins/SKIN/custom.php” file. “SKIN” is referring to your selected skin.

If you want to change the year in the copyright in the footer automatically, add the following code.

/* Footer Text */
function my_footer() {
		<p>Copyright &copy; 2011 &ndash; <?php echo date("Y"); ?>
		<a href="/"></a></p>
add_action('hook_top_footer', 'my_footer');
