How to customize text of default phpbb cookie consent?

Post by peopleinside » Wed May 23, 2018 2:50 pm

Hi, under PCA is possible to enable a default cookie consent message, here on top there are a FAQ link (broken) to PHPBB FAQ.
The link to PHP FAQ on top of the page is giving 404 error on PHPbb website.

How the default cookie message can be edited? With file? I need to put custom link to my cookie page.
Thanks

The FAQ link on phpbb.com/community is NOT broken, but it has no information about editing a cookie consent message because, AFAIK, there is no such message in phpBB. If you wanted to add one, you could edit the registration Terms.

Link broken is on PCA under Cookie page.
Knowledge Base di phpBB.com - Risoluzione Impostazioni dei cookie non corrette
https://www.phpbb.com/support/go/cookie-settings/

And I am asking where cookie bar message can be edited.
Also maybe will be useful add a footer link.

you are right, the link at the top of the cookie settings page in the ACP is throwing a 404

I wonder why so many people type PCA when it is ACP?

oh well, the file to edit is the language file.
language/en/common.php
around line #180

only edit what is on the right side and be sure to leave the apostrophes alone.
also, if your edit includes an apostrophe, you must escape it like this: \'

In my case because read PCA on silver theme on top... is the link I have when access to the admin side.

Great find where I can edit URL and TEXT on the cookie message. Thanks!

What is this link that is 404?

Robert, many (most?) languages place adjectives after the noun, not before, so in Italian it "Panel to Control Administration." Other Romance languages are the same.

thanks, I wonderd it was a language thing. I have a hard time just dealing with english some days.

I assume it is the same problem with PM written as MP so often.

There is a way to also add cookie link on the footer instead to have only cookie bar?
PHPBB can consider to add an option in future for manage better cookie policy? Like a page where user can customize banner, link and cookie link in footer that now is not available.
