How Do I Add Cookies to Webflow?

Webflow is a powerful web design and development platform that allows you to create stunning websites without writing code. One essential feature of any website is the ability to store and retrieve user information.

Cookies are commonly used to achieve this functionality. In this tutorial, we will explore how to add cookies to your Webflow project.

What are Cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored on a user’s device by a website. They help websites remember information about the user, such as their preferences or login status. Cookies can be used for various purposes, including tracking user activity, personalizing content, and maintaining stateful sessions.

Adding Cookies in Webflow

To add cookies to your Webflow project, you need to follow these steps:

Step 1: Include the JavaScript Cookie Library

Firstly, you need to include the JavaScript Cookie library in your Webflow project. This library provides an easy way to create, read, and delete cookies.

  • Download the Cookie library: Visit the official GitHub repository for the JavaScript Cookie library ( and download the latest version of the library.
  • Add the library to your project: Upload the downloaded JavaScript file to your project’s assets folder in Webflow.
  • Link the library: Open your project in Webflow Designer and navigate to <head>. Insert a new HTML embed element and paste the following code:
<script src="path/to/your/js.cookie.js"></script>

Make sure to replace path/to/your/js.js with the actual path to the JavaScript file you uploaded.

Step 2: Write JavaScript Code

Next, you need to write JavaScript code to create, read, and delete cookies. You can place this code in the Webflow project’s custom code section or in an external JavaScript file.

Here’s an example of creating a cookie:

document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function() {
  Cookies.set('cookieName', 'cookieValue');

In this example, we use the Cookies.set() method to create a cookie named cookieName with the value cookieValue. You can customize these values according to your needs.

Step 3: Accessing Cookie Data

To access the data stored in a cookie, you can use the Cookies.get() method. Here’s an example:

// Retrieve the value of a cookie
var cookieValue = Cookies.get('cookieName');

In this example, we retrieve the value of the cookie named cookieName. The retrieved value is stored in the cookieValue variable.

Step 4: Deleting Cookies

If you want to delete a cookie, you can use the Cookies.remove() method. Here’s an example:

// Remove a cookie

In this example, we remove the cookie named cookieName.


Cookies are a useful tool for storing user information on a website. With Webflow and the JavaScript Cookie library, you can easily add, read, and delete cookies in your projects.

Remember to include the library and write the necessary JavaScript code to handle cookie operations. Happy coding!
