Description

Hello,

While setting up a new site's Privacy Policy I went to find the guide and found it's not available until you've selected a Privacy Policy page.

It would be nice to always provide the guide so it can be used in creating the page rather than having to create the page and then come back to find the guide.

Cheers

In 44492:

Privacy: Always show the privacy policy guide.

Previously, the link to the privacy policy guide would only be displayed when a privacy policy page had been selected, but the guide is generally useful without that.

Props mukesh27, birgire.
Fixes #44871.
