In summary: The law which applies to how you use cookies and similar technologies for storing information on a user’s equipment such as their computer or mobile device changed on 26 May 2011.

Full customisation and styling for the banner is available through the dedicated Settings page within the Admin Dashboard.

I initial release of the plugin also includes a helpful 'Testing/Development Mode' that keeps the banner in place on the front-end so that it can be styled and tested easily. Full list of features and settings available:

- Ready to use banner design that's both responsive and retina compatible.
- Testing/Development mode for convenient testing and styling.
- Set the number of days before the banner is shown again to the same user.
- Set how many seconds the banner should be displayed for, before fading out.
- Dynamically select and link your banner to an existing CMS page that elaborates on Privacy and Cookies.
- Customise the short message displayed within the Cookie Banner.
- Modify and choose to migrate the banner's default CSS onto your own stylesheet.

Quickstart guide:

  1. Go to the 'System' tab in October, and install the plugin using the CGGStudio.Cookielawbanner code.
  2. After installation has finished a new component will appear in under Octobers 'CMS > Components' tab. You have the option to add this to only one page, or add it to a layout making it appear on all pages that use the layout. Whichever you chose the instructions are the same.
  3. Open the your selected page/layout, and add the component to it.
  4. Add this small code anywhere on the page/layout: {% component 'Cookielawbanner' %} Be sure to use the correct alias, if you haven't changed it, then it should be 'Cookielawbanner'. The position of the code doesn't really count, since the arrow has a fixed position.
  5. That's it. You now have a working 'Cookielawbanner' button on your page. It has no outside dependencies, so you don't have to worry about anything else.

Colors:

The Component requires you to add the hex color codes you prefer. This free online application can help you with that: http://www.colorpicker.com/

  • Found the plugin not useful on 4 Jul, 2015

    Nice little plugin to have to easily be complaint with EU cookie law but unfortunately couldn't get the plugin working. None of the options of the components can be edited in the backend as stated above. Moreover the EU cookie notification doesn't work on the live demo site provided in the plugin page. It would be really helpful if the project owner could fix these issues.

    Does not work. Not able to edit options in backend, as said above.

    Simple to install, but settings not editable in backend. This makes this plugin useless.
