How to comply with Spanish cookies legislation

 law cookies españa

A few days ago the first fines have fallen to two Spanish websites for violating the legal rules on cookies . The fines have been of 3,000 and 500 euros respectively, but could have amounted to the not insignificant figure of 30,000 euros .

According to the sentence one of the sites, ] created with WordPress (although it confuses with, it used JetPack cookies ( _qca ), SlimStat (from the statistics module) and Quancast ( mc ]).

Of all this, some plugin warns us like Cookilian that we already saw in the article of how to comply with the cookie legislation in WordPress and it would not hurt install it and check the cookies that are on your site and create a page that adequately reports them, mostly to not get you upset.

What are the implications of these first two sentences? I personally think that it sends very bad messages …

The first thing is that, with all the big companies, and all of the IBEX, ignoring the flagrant legislation of cookies, that the Data Protection Agency breastfeed with two small companies I do not know if qualify it as a way to get noticed by setting an example against the little ones who can not or know how to defend themselves well, or as a warning to sailors to scare, again, the little ones.

Meanwhile, what is achieved is that every small business that tries to prosper on the Internet end up closing or moving your business to another country where they do not get so great with something that should be corrected with a software solution, by the hand of Microsoft, Google or Apple, then with a line code could perfectly block cookies unless expressly approved and for all, in their browsers.

But no, here we are more asshole and stupendous than anyone and we are dedicated to fuck the Easter to our SMEs to put obstacles in the way of entrepreneurs, to prevent electronic commerce from emerging and being able to give employment.

It is true that the laws are to comply with them but also administrations have the responsibility and the duty to make life easier for their managers, finding the best solution to the problems that arise, and something that could be arranged so easily by talking to the big software companies, instead is attacked the small webs that subsist with scarce penalties, but much easier to penalize with fines that can not be escaped due to lack of legal cabinets that make the processes "sleep" or even win them.

What they get is that something that should be good: guarantee the Internet user's right to privacy, end up being a brake on that same freedom, not to mention the flowering of new opportunities on the web.

So you know, if you're not a big untouchable multinational, you better prepare your website to comply with the cookie legislation. Do not get pimp because you see that the most important newspapers and portals do not comply, they will not touch them, but you do.

That you have not yet gotten to work to comply with the legislation of cookies? and get to work:

  1. Guide on the use of cookies by the Data Protection Agency (pdf)
  2. Guide to comply with the law of cookies in 5 steps of Adigital (pdf )

The WordPress Philosophy • WordPress Help

WordPress has some objectives, a rationale and a philosophy of use that is what has contributed to the fact that today he is the king of CMS and that it remains so for many years, if you keep the principles of its philosophy, this …


Out of the box

A great software should work with little configuration and adjustments . WordPress is designed to be up and running in full in no more than five minutes. You should not have to fight to use the standard WordPress functionality.

We work hard to ensure that each release maintains this philosophy. We ask for the minimum possible technical details during the installation process and we offer full explanations of everything we ask for.

Designed for most

Many WordPress end users are not technically prepared. They do not know what AJAX is, nor do they care what version of PHP they are using. The average WordPress user simply wants to be able to write without problems or interruptions. These are the users for whom we design the software since in the end they are the ones who will spend the most time using it for what it was created.

Decisions, not options

When we make decisions, the users are the that we have in mind first A good example of this consideration are the software options. Every time you give an option to a user you are asking him to make a decision. When a user does not care or does not understand the option this leads to frustration. As developers, we sometimes feel that offering options for everything is a good thing, because you never have too many things to choose, right? In the end, these options end up being technical decisions, choices in which the average user has no interest whatsoever. It is our obligation, as developers, to make intelligent design decisions and avoid putting the weight of technical decisions on the end user.

Clean, light and average

The WordPress core will always offer a solid range of basic features. It is designed to be light and fast, and it will always be like this. We constantly ask " when feature X " or " will be mounted why is not plugin X integrated into the kernel ". The golden rule is that the core must offer features that 80% or more of the end users will truly appreciate and use. If the next version of WordPress comes with a feature that most users want to disable immediately, or they think they will never use it, then we will remove it. If we stay at the beginning of 80% this should never happen.

We are able to do this since we have a very capable plugins and themes system, and a fantastic community of developers. Different people have different needs, and having a huge number of quality WordPress plugins and themes allows users to customize the facilities to their liking. This should allow all users to find the remaining 20% ​​and make WordPress features that everyone appreciates and uses.

The struggle for simplicity

We never have enough simplicity. We want to make WordPress easier to use in each version. We have a good track record in this regard, and if you do not believe us then check out some of the older versions of WordPress!

In the latest versions we have taken big steps to improve the ease of use and make things better. really easier to understand. A great example of this is the kernel software updates. Upgrading used to be a painful manual task, too compiled for most users. We decided to focus on this and simplify it until we get it in a single click. Now anyone who has a WordPress installation can do one-click updates, both with the WordPress kernel and with the plugins and themes.

We love challenging ourselves and simplifying tasks to get positive results for the overall user experience. with WordPress. Each version of WordPress should be easier and more pleasant to use than the previous one.

Deadlines are not arbitrary

Deadlines are not arbitrary, they are a promise we make to ourselves and our users to help us to control the infinite possibilities of everything that could be part of each version. We aspire to launch three major versions a year because based on successes and mistakes we have discovered that it is a good balance between offering cool things in each version and not ending up doing so much that we break more than we add.

Meet deadlines almost It always forces you to remove something from each version. And this is not a bad thing, it is what it should be.

The routine of delaying a version to get " that feature most " is, literally, a warren. We did it for a year, and it was not pleasant for anyone.

The more frequent and regular the versions the less important it is for each specific characteristic to be in that version. If it is not available for this version it will be in a few months, in the following one. When the versions are unpredictable, or lengthen or shorten, there is more pressure to try to put in them more than one thing because it will spend a lot of time until the next. The delay begets delay.

The loquacious minority

There is a good rule of thumb in Internet culture called the 1% rule. It states that " the number of people creating content on the Internet represents approximately 1% (or less) of the people who see that content ."

So, although we consider it really important to listen and respond to all those who post comments and express their opinions in forums, they only represent a fraction of our end users. When we make decisions about how to move forward with future versions of WordPress we try to involve more of those users who are not so talkative in the network. We do it by meeting and talking with WordCamps users all over the world, this gives us a better balance and understanding, and in the end it allows us to make better decisions so that everything goes forward.

Our bill of rights

WordPress is under the General Public License (GPL v2 or later), which offers four fundamental freedoms, considered as the WordPress "declaration of rights":

  • The freedom to execute the program, for any purpose.
  • Freedom to study how the program works, and change it to make it do what you want.
  • The freedom to redistribute it.
  • The freedom to distribute copies of your modified versions to others.

Part of these requirements of the The license includes also collecting in the GPL license the derivative works or elements that link to WordPress core functions (such as themes, plugins, etc.), transmitting in this way the I also think that there are people who will try to bypass these ideals and restrict freedom to their users, trying to find loopholes or any way to circumvent the intention of the WordPress license, which is to ensure freedom of use. We believe that the community as a whole will reward those who focus on supporting the freedoms of this license rather than those who try to prevent them.

Responsible use of WordPress community resources should therefore be subject to best use possible, emphasizing high-quality collaborations that encompass the freedoms offered by the GPL.

How to upload and record videos to YouTube directly from WordPress

Always it is best to not insert videos that are hosted on our server because it causes problems with bandwidth. In addition, there may be problems with the player or file formats. Therefore, it is better to upload the videos to external services such as YouTube or Vimeo, then insert them into our posts or pages very easily.

To upload videos directly from the ticket editor, we must install the plugin YouTube Upload Widget . This does not require additional configurations, just activate it and we will see a button above the ticket editor.

By clicking on the Youtube button, an upload to YouTube interface opens. Here you can add a title, description and keywords to the video.

You will be asked to access your Youtube account, and you must choose which channel the videos will be uploaded to. In addition, the browser will ask for permission to use your computer's webcam and your audio system. Now you can record videos and upload them directly to your Youtube account. You can also use the Youtube video editor, to customize what we decide to upload.

Disqus only where you need it

Many large sites use Disqus as alternative to the native WordPress comment system and other CMS . The enormous virtues and tools of this commenting system offer so many advantages that it is difficult to resist. I myself use it in this blog years ago and I am really satisfied with its performance.

However, like all software, it has things to improve, and one of them, if you are really involved with the performance of your website, is executes JavaScript code in the whole site, not only where it is necessary to use Disqus .

For example, if you have a closed entry to comments it is not necessary to load the Disqus JavaScript , the same happens if you do not have active comments on the pages. And this JavaScript, like any dynamic element, consumes resources from your server.

// Load disqus only where necessary

add_action ( 'wp_head' 'tgm_tame_disqus_comments' [19659009]) ;

/ **

* Prevents the disqus comments from being loaded where it is not necessary

* /

function tgm_tame_disqus_comments () {

/ ** If you are visiting an entry or page with the comments open you need the code * /

if ( is_singular ( array ( 'post' 'page' ) ) && [19659019] comments_open () ) [19659004] return ;

/ ** And Disqus is stopped where comments are not open * /

remove_action ( 'loop_end' 'dsq_loop_end' ) ;

remove_action ( 'wp_footer' 'dsq_output_footer_comment_js' ) ;


You save the changes and Disqus will only load where you have the possibility to leave comments active.

How WordPress affects (positively) SEO, a case study • WordPress Help

 WORDPRESS SEO WORDPRESS I always recommend WordPress to create dynamic and easy to update websites, and SEO is one of the bonuses that end up convincing anyone. That WordPress is a content manager that improves positioning web thanks to its structure, its plugins, well-designed themes and blogging is something known, but it never hurts to put it in figures and real cases.

Something like this is what they explain in Points Group that they received the order from a client that, after hiring a programmer to design a static website, without a content manager, they saw a debacle in traffic as can be seen in the following graphics before and after:

The web looked great , and the keywords in principle were well defined and configured, but the reality is that the site went down scandalously in all traffic measurements and reach .

What the people of Points Group did, how can you imagine, it was install WordPress and a couple of plugins that will dynamically generate titles and descriptions . Of course, this can also be programmed by hand but with WordPress it is much faster and, above all, it does not require any subsequent modifications, everything is done at the moment from the CMS.

What happened? that quickly the web regained lost traffic with the same content and a few redirects later from the hand-programmed pages to WordPress taxonomies.

 after installing wordpress

But the thing did not stop there but, very wisely, the client was recommended to take advantage of the virtues of WordPress as a content creation tool indicating that they would use the blogging features to generate entries in a habitual way, at the beginning only 2 publications per month . The result ?, the web far exceeded any previous traffic statistics .

 after blogging

Unfortunately, the client stopped publishing regularly (2 monthly entries) for work reasons, and the traffic went down a bit, however the web just lowered traffic to blogging prices levels.

What can we learn from this real case?

  1. WordPress is a CMS that by itself improves the SEO of a web.
  2. If we update the web in a consistent way WordPress shows all its potential, improving even more the positioning and traffic of the site.


  1. Use WordPress.
  2. Blog.

If you have a similar case, tell it 🙂
