First Time Blogging WordPress Copyright

There is another part of web developing or online selling that many forget at the beginning.

The legal rights to your website and it’s content. Remember that your content is precious to you and you want to protect the content, images, products and other files you might be sharing in your website from people copying, using your content, using your files without your consent or worst of all claiming that it belongs to their website.

If you have a membership site, your clients personal details and other information they share with your site will also need to be protected.

The following is a list of pages of legal declaration about a website, blog’s content and products.

Legal Pages: 

  • Privacy Policies
  • Terms and Conditions
  • Disclaimer
  • Copyright Notice

There is a plugin that I am currently using which cover the above mentioned pages and it also promotes advertisement. The plugin is WP Insert.

You might not want to use the plugin and prefer to hire a professional to write up the pages mentioned above. You can also implement, Creative Commons Attribution Licence.

WordPress Policy Settings

WordPress has an area that allows you to set up your Privacy Policy Page. The following instructions can help you.

Step 1 ) Go to Settings -> Privacy in your admin panel as illustrated in the image below.


Step 2 ) The following image Privacy Settings allows you to select and manage the following options.

Create a new Privacy Policy Page

  • Click on Create button to create a new page if you haven’t yet created one.

Change your Privacy Policy page

  • Select the privacy policy page from the drop down menu.
  • Click on Use This Page button when you have selected the page.


These are just a few methods you can use to implement the Privacy Policy Page in WordPress. However, you might have your own method.

Important: As a website owner, you may need to follow national or international privacy laws. Remember protection is very important.
