      • WordPress – How to Create a Privacy Policy Page
      • Now chances are many of you reading this will need a privacy policy page.

      • Hire Neogain.
      • This article doesn’t cover the actual content of a privacy policy page, but how you can place one into a self-hosted WordPress page.
      • Breaking this article down it specifically covers excluding a page from a navigation menu, creating the page and then placing the link.
      • How to exclude certain pages from your navigation menu.
      • There are many circumstances when you want to create a page, but not to include it in your navigation menu.
      • By default WordPress doesn’t give you this option, however with a help of a free WordPress plugin you can easily provide this feature.
      • How to install the ‘Exclude Pages’ WordPress plugin:
      • 1. Visit: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/exclude-pages/ and download the plugin.
      • 2. Extract the files from the archive and then upload the folder ‘exclude-pages’ and the files within the folder to /wp-content/plugins/
      • 3. From your WordPress dashboard select ‘Plugins’ and then In the new window select ‘inactive’.
      • 4. Now you can activate the ‘Exclude Pages’ plugin.
      • How to use the ‘Exclude Pages’ plugin:
      • 1. Open a page for editing via the WordPress dashboard.
      • 2. From the right hand area untick ‘Include this page in list of pages’.
      • 3. Update /
      • How to create and place a ‘Privacy Policy’ page.
      • Now the first concern should actually be where are you going to place this web page?
      • Many website owners don’t want it distracting people from their main navigation website links (why the exclude pages plugin comes in handy), so how about in the footer perhaps?
      • Save your page.
      • How to place a page link in your WordPress footer:
      • 1. Using FTP browse to your theme directory i.e. /wp-content/themes/yourtheme and make the footer.php file is writable, by right clicking on the file and changing the settings to 777.
      • 2. Now in the WordPress dashboard select ‘Editor’ from within the ‘Appearance’ selection on the left hand side.
      • 3. Now select the ‘footer.php’ file for editing from the right hand side.
      • 4. Find the appropriate div layer and paste <a href=”http://yourwebsite.com/privacy-policy/”>Privacy Policy</a>
      • 5. Update the file, then via ftp make the file read-only again. i.e. access settings 644
      • Note: In the instructions above privacy-policy is the suggested name of the privacy policy page.
      • Now you need to create the actually ‘Privacy Policy’ page:
      • 1. Create a new page and call it Privacy Policy.
      • 2. If you don’t already have a Privacy Policy written and you require one for Google Adsense you might find the free policy here suitable: http://www.jensense.com/2009/04/03/new-adsense-privacy-policy-sample-with-interest-based-targeting-included/
      • 3. If you installed the ‘Exclude Pages’ plugin you can select to not include the page it in your navigation, from a right hand side window.
      • 4. Now you can publish the page.
      • Conclusion
      • The end result if you followed this article, is that a privacy policy page now exists for your website, but doesn’t appear in a main menu, but instead a link from your footer, so as not to distract visitors from your main objectives.
