Updated over a week ago

Termly’s ExpressionEngine add-on makes it easy to install and manage Termly features directly from your ExpressionEngine dashboard. Once you connect your Termly account, you’ll be able to scan your site for cookies, install a consent banner, and enable Auto Blocker, all using the add-on.

Installing the add-on

Follow these steps to add the Termly add-on:

  1. Visit the ExpressionEngine Add-on Store and search for “Termly” or click this direct link.

  2. Download the “Termly GDPR/CCPA Cookie Consent Banner” plugin and unzip it.

  3. Add the unzipped folder to your system/user/addons/ folder.

  4. Go to your ExpressionEngine Control Panel and click Developer > Add-Ons.

  5. Click Install.

You can now access the Termly add-on from your ExpressionEngine control panel by clicking Developer > Add-Ons.

Using the Termly add-on

Follow these steps to connect your existing Termly account or sign up for a free Termly account:

  • If you have an existing Termly account, click Account from the Termly add-on menu, then enter your Termly API key to connect to your Termly account.

    • Your API key can be found in your Termly dashboard under Settings in the left-side menu.

  • If you don’t have a Termly account, follow the link in the add-on to sign up. You will be prompted to fill out details to create your Termly account. Once you create a Termly account, you can add your API key by clicking Account in the Termly add-on menu.

    • Your API key can be found in your Termly dashboard under Settings in the left-side menu.

After you’ve connected your Termly account, you can scan your site and install your consent banner directly from the add-on.
