[REQUEST] contact form - additional checkbox (GDPR)


to comply with newly installed GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), effective throughout Europe since May, 25., I would like to ask for an additional checkbox on the contact form. This checkbox should be mandatory and have a label to add custom text to inform users about GDPR. A position next/ close to the submit button would be appreciated.


PS: If you provide the needed lines of code, I could add them to appropriate files myself.


  • Please share the screenshot with the mark where you want to add this custom checkbox on the contact page & also share  your contact page URL. Please note the link to the privacy policy will remain static in contact template it can be changed via editing the file.

    Create child theme, ignore if already using. Create a file in it with name contact-us.php and edit it, and paste the code from  this link . 

    Find the line no 106 and change text  as your need .
