Will that do? Or do we not even need to bother?
I have just looked on your website and it looks awesome, How did you make it want to make a tutorial or something :D ?

I doubt it. Your site also places cookies from tapatalk, addthis and google+one. Those are probably tracking cookies which are more against the law than the usual phpbb session cookies and the delete_cookies function doesn't remove them (would be cool if it did).
You and me, time and space. You watch us run!

Agreed, but technically impossible. Sites may only set cookies for their own domain.

Cheers for the input, I've done away with it for now until things become more clear. :)

Thanks for the kind words, I'm not sure I could write a TUT, as I've modified it over a long time now.

You should search the MODs forums or, if you don't find what you need, make a MOD request.

Yes, but can't find the right solution though...

Hm, I'm using this now: http://civicuk.com/cookie-law/index (link in profile)

I have it on two boards. On A board works just fine, but on B it always allows GA cookies (I have GA activated for that board and on A not). And codes are the same on A and B board. Even if I dont allow cookies it deletes it, but when I refresh site it loads them again (only on B board).

The code I'm using:

Code: Select all

<script src="http://www.geoplugin.net/javascript.gp" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="/{T_TEMPLATE_PATH}/cookieControl-5.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">//<![CDATA[
  cookieControl({
      introText:'...',
      fullText:'...',
      position:'left', // left or right
      shape:'triangle', // triangle or diamond
      theme:'dark', // light or dark
      startOpen:true,
      autoHide:10000,
      subdomains:false,
      protectedCookies: [], //list the cookies you do not want deleted ['analytics', 'twitter']
      consentModel:'explicit',
      onAccept:function(){ccAddAnalytics()},
      onReady:function(){},
      onCookiesAllowed:function(){ccAddAnalytics()},
      onCookiesNotAllowed:function(){},
      countries:'' // Or supply a list ['United Kingdom', 'Greece']
      });

      function ccAddAnalytics() {
        jQuery.getScript("http://www.google-analytics.com/ga.js", function() {
          var GATracker = _gat._createTracker('');
          GATracker._trackPageview();
        });
      }
   //]]>
</script>
Some other questions:

- should I block GA cookies because of that law?

- if I remove my board from GA, should I do anything else? I haven't installed any of the GA code on my board...
