With an elegant user-interface that doesn't hurt the look and feel of your site, Cookie Control is a mechanism for controlling user consent for the use of cookies on their computer.

Please Note:

Cookie Control is simply a mechanism to enable you to comply with UK and EU law on cookies. You need to determine which elements of your website are using cookies (this can be done via a Cookie Audit ), and ensure they are connected to Cookie Control.

Doesn't Work For Me

Posted on 29 January 2014

This module is designed to implement one of the more recognisable Cookie Control options. This is why I chose it.

Unfortunately it just doesn't work on my site. When published in the wrong template position a message appears indicating the correct position. When published in that position it simply doesn't appear.

Looking at the help forum there are lots of comments from Joomla users having issues with getting it to work. Many of the posts have gone unanswered.

Verdict: a well meaning attempt to provide a Joomla implementation of the CIVIC cookie control. but one that is neither robust nor supported. I gave it an average rating because it seems it does work for some people and I do like the styling etc.
