I installed the plugin correctly, put in the text & set the privacy policy page, but the checkbox & text does not appear below the comment box

The plugin only works if the theme uses the native WordPress function for comment forms. Your theme is probably not compatible with this plugin.

Excellent, straightforward, lightweight plugin provides a functionality that really should be part of WordPress core at this point. Until it is, this is a useful solution -- and a more logical approach than some others I've tried because it directly associates acceptance with the actual comment in the database.
