Google AdSense CMP requirement in phpBB

Post by ScuL »

Hi,

I've been displaying Google Ads in phpBB since basically day dot (and I've been a phpBB user since 2004).
Just recently got an email from Google saying that the displaying of ads in the EU and UK will be shut down per January 2024 *unless* our website complies with a "CMP management tool approved by Google".

I have no idea what this is nor what its purpose is but I suppose it's some kind of approval mechanism to comply with privacy legislation.

How does one integrate such a CMP tool with phpBB?

There is more information and a form to submit here, if you press it there is an ask a question option which may be of use.

Everything that's on that page is abracadabra. It doesn't really explain what a CMP is or what to do.
Is phpBB a CMP?
Can it be a CMP?
Is a CMP an external piece of software that must plug into phpBB?
I am so confused I have no idea what to do.

Now all webmasters who have connected Google AdSense to their site are shown a notification on the AdSense home page that if you do not connect the CMP, Google will do it for you automatically. You just need to agree with this by choosing one of the suggested points.

Please reach out to Google for support with this query. phpBB has no way of assisting you with this "CMP" issue.
