#53446 closed enhancement (fixed)

Twenty Twenty: Add privacy policy link to footer

Reported by: ryelle's profile ryelle Owned by: hellofromtonya's profile hellofromTonya
Milestone: 5.9 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Bundled Theme Keywords: has-patch needs-docs has-dev-note
Focuses: privacy Cc:


If you have a privacy policy set, the page should be linked to from the footer of the site. The other bundled themes add this link using the_privacy_policy_link, but Twenty Twenty does not.

In #43715, when the link was added to Twenty Seventeen and earlier, it was dropped next to "Powered by WordPress". I think the same could be done for Twenty Twenty.

  • Focuses privacy added

@kapilpaul Thanks for the patch! I would rather avoid hiding the Privacy Policy link on smaller screens, so I tried another version.

Changes in 53446.1.diff:

  • copying color settings from @kapilpaul's patch
  • adding margin and nowrap for the to-the-top link
  • adding a top margin for privacy link on smaller screens, switching to a left margin at 700px wide
  • adding flex-wrap to avoid pushing individual elements onto two lines
  • unhiding powered-by link at 1000px instead of 700px so the flex-wrap is rarely needed

Sorry. I omitted to clarify that in my testing above, the Privacy Policy link uses the following title: "Politique de confidentialité".
