I would be advising your users to update their browser as if they are that old they will be having problems all over the place.
Not an option because my forum targets the retro community and they are on old browsers by definition :)

Well, I guess I'll just hack it to do what I want. It's not rocket science after all.

Thanks! Since your code comments are much more helpful than your forum comments and, even better, completely free of gratuitous little jokes this turned out to be a matter of about 90 seconds. So just in case anyone else is having the same issue, just kill the following 4 lines in event/listener.php and "Login" and "Register" will always be visible:

Code: Select all

			// Let's remove the footer login box
//			if (!$this->cookie_set)
//			{
//				$this->template->assign_var('S_IS_BOT', true);
//			}
No big deal really...

And in doing that you have totally invalidated the reason for having the extension so you might just as well remove it completely as you are now not complying with GDPR

I never said that I need GDPR compliance. I'm not in a region where GDPR applies. I just want to have a cookie banner. Not because of any legislation forcing me to have one but just out of niceness and transparency. And your extension delivers that.

Since you are so obsessed with GDPR compliance I'm a little surprised you didn't call your extension "GDPR Privacy Policy" or something like that. To me, the name "Privacy Policy" sounds like a more generic privacy policy extension rather than one that is specifically tailored to the needs of GDPR.

Anyway, I think you should widen your horizon a little. GDPR doesn't govern the whole planet. Your extension can be very useful for other regions as well and tolerance for that is quite a virtue.

The description of the extension, shown in the very first post, makes it clear that its main purpose is to fulfil the requirements of the GDPR.

Just activate the standard cookie banner in ACP! (acp - Cookie settings - Cookie notice - Enabled)
