New updates in the Design Settings tab - what we have improved
May 23, 2022
The Design Settings tab in the Consentmo app has been recently updated. In this article, will show you the new outlook of the tab and all the options that you can use in order to customize the Cookie Bar and Preferences Popup in a way to completely match your brand. Let's dive right into the main settings:
Features available for all users
When entering the Design Settings tab you will see the completely revamped layout. The biggest change is in the Preview, which is now displaying how the Cookie Bar will look like on your storefront.
Here is the new outlook of the Design Settings tab
The Position section is located on the left hand side. By default, the bar is set at the bottom of your storefront. However, you can change it's position by choosing between several options.
Here are the different positions which the Cookie Bar can be set to
Right under the Position settings are located the Opacity, Font Family and the Font size options where you can modify the Cookie Bar and the Preferences Popup. If you want to customize the Cookie Banner and the Preferences in a way that will match your brand design, change the Family Font and Font size to your preferences.
Here is an example of the results after we have modified the Font Family and Font size. As a font we chose to use Poppins instead of the default one and changed the Font size to 17px instead 16px.

Button Text Color
Checkbox Color in the Preferences Popup
Checkbox Tick Color in the Preferences Popup
Here is how all these work:
A new addition to the tab is the Selectors link, located above the Custom CSS field. By clicking on the link, you will be forwarded to our FAQ page, where you will find all the selectors that you can use in order to add or remove different elements from the Cookie Consent Bar and Preferences Popup.

Features for Premium Plan users
If you are a Premium plan user you will be able to take advantage of some additional features like positioning the Cookie Bar in the middle of the screen, customizing your Request Pages and Email Templates.
1. Positioning the Cookie Bar in the middle of the screen
The Center and the Center Blocked Content positions of the Cookie Bar are our latest additions to the app, and they are available only for the Premium plan users. However, if you are a Free plan user, you can also set the Cookie Bar in the middle of the screen by applying some additional CSS code into the Custom CSS field. We have created a dedicated blog post and a video tutorial showcasing the whole process.

Note: Keep in mind that any changes applied to the Cookie Bar through the custom CSS field won't be visible on the Preview Screen
2. Customization of the Request Pages

In that section you can:
Change the Background Color by simply picking a shade that you prefer from the color palette or directly adding the color code.
Change the Text Color, by selecting one of the colors used on your store
Choose whether you are going to add your store logo. In case you upload it, it will be shown in the header of the Request Page
