Complianz Privacy Suite

All in One WP Security and the Cookie Notice (403 Error)

The cookie notice doesn’t show up

Complianz and All In One WP Security & Firewall work well together, but in some cases, you might need to disable XSS advanced rules.

To quickly check if you need this exclusion you can disable the XSS rules for this purpose. If the banner shows up after clearing your cache, you need to exclude a small javascript file from Complianz to enable XSS Rules, this can be done with .htaccess. If you don’t know how to write in .htaccess, please keep XSS off, as it is an advanced firewall rule and might cause issues for your entire installation.

As per the warning of the plugin itself:

Due to the nature of the code being inserted to the .htaccess file, this feature may break some functionality for certain plugins and you are therefore advised to take a backup of .htaccess before applying this configuration.

The rules can be found under FireWall – Advanced Firewall Rules | Bad Query Strings & Advanced Character String Filter
