EU laws require sites to let the user know if cookies are stored on their devices. Depending on EU country there are different types of compliance implementation. Usually scripts like this one only offer notifications and they don't implement real opt-in or opt-out compliance. This plugin offers October CMS implementation of Cookie Consent JS, additional Twig template function for easier checks whether or not to serve cookies and additional JS that cleans all cookies if user declines to accept cookies.


The Cookie Consent JS we link to is developed by Insites and released under MIT. Icon made by Freepik from www.flaticon.com and released under CC 3.0.

This plugin integrates the popular Cookie Consent tool in your theme. It requires the theme to have the scripts and styles placeholder.

Simply configure the settings from the backend interface (Settings -> MISC -> EU Cookie Law Madness) and then it automatically runs on the frontend.

This is only Javascript frontend (as all other plugins)! It sets cookies based on user decision whether to allow or reject cookies. You will need to code your PHP to check upon users decision before setting any cookies.

There is a view helper allow_cookies that you can call from twig template.


{% if allow_cookies()  %}
// javascript for serving cookies like Google Analytics etc
{% endif %}  

If you need to access user decision, cookie is named cookieconsent_status unless you renamed it in configuration.

Cookie can have values:

  • dismiss
  • allow
  • deny

    I select that this plugin is useful just for the backend options.

    Something was wrong and I can't figure out what. I followed the instructions.

    This plugin is good and do the job.

    But the way it render the banner is kind of weird: the plugin request the settings with PHP, PHP generate a Javascript object from these settings then finally javascript create the DOM Elements.

    No partial is used so we can't override it to fully customize it from scratch, it's really a shame on a CMS where the partials is the law for override plugin's components.

    Hey Petr

    Thanks for review. At the moment I dont support rainlab translate since I have build this extension for my own projects and didn't need multilingual support there. If I will need this functionality I will surely share the code for it.

    I would also gladly approve any pull requests ;)
