Please, what is the name of the GDPR Cookie Consent WordPress Plugin used on this website: https://www.makeuseof.com ?

Wouldn't it make sense to ask them?

Can't see why not. It's not going to hurt them in any way, and most businesses are fine with answering polite questions.

ETA: I suspect it's just one of the standard ones, but has been given custom styling for their site.

They would be the better resource for this information. You're asking about plugins for a different piece of software on a phpBB board. Not sure I follow your logic.

I tried that site in Firefox and Chrome and didn't get the pop up. It might be geo location based which means I need to use a Europe VPN server location and try again. There are also many ways to detect themes and plug-ins on WordPress and this website shows them, but I had no luck with any of those and the Chrome extension. https://wpbuffs.com/wordpress-plugin-theme-checkers/

Edit-

Just tried a Europe VPN location and I still didn't see that GDPR cookie pop up.

Do you have a specific link that shows that pop up? I'm just not seeing it at all.

You should ask at WP support.

I know how to check/detect a WP Theme and Plugins but most WP Detectors don't detect WP sites with custom theme.

Clear your browser's cache and try again.

Hello,

You've been advised to ask the site showing that or ask WP themselves. Since this is not related to phpBB, there's no reason to discuss it further.
