The problem reported at 2am was fixed within a matter of hours. And Mustaq took the great care to report a discrepancy in the module code.
Great module with a fantastic support !!
Thanks for taking the time to make a review and it was a pleasure to identify the issue in the other module and to offer advice so that it follows Joomla! standards.
I really appreciate you taking the time to make a review and more importantly, for being concise with the support request.
In Joomla it's rather complicated to find out which software is loading which jQuery.
Mustaq has the patience to answer each mail and to help as long as everything is working!
Great and thanks!
Thanks for taking the time to make a review, it was a pleasure working with you.
Good work to herdboy for another great Herdboy extension, and for his very effective support around it.
Highly recommend if you are looking for a professional clean quick out of the box solution!
Thanks for taking the time to make a Review, your appreciation is noted and it was a pleasure working with you.
However the support is always there to help and they did the best they could! That's why I'm reviewing this extension as average, it might not have worked for me but nonetheless the support service was very helpful! I reckon I was just unlucky but this plugin is working with most sites :)!
Thanks for taking the time to Review. I am also sorry you gave up :) All you had to do was disabling loading of an older jQuery in your template. I could have done that for you, but you never gave me the chance.
Developer provided a patch guide to have 'Cookie Monter' working correctly.
Thanks 'Mustaq' for your patience & close support.
Thanks for taking the time to make a review, it is appreciated and it was a pleasure helping you get rid of that other jQuery lib.
Thank again Mustaq ;)
Thanks for taking the time to make a review, this is appreciated and it was a pleasure assisting you overcome obstacles and optimise at the same time.
Thanks for taking the time to make the Review and for highlighting the requirements for Google Analytics in Germany.
I ran up against an issue while deploying Cookie Monster on a development site. We use a Slideshow script which was badly written in the days of JQuery 1.2.6 and conflicted with the newer jQuery used in cookie monster.
I contacted Mustaq Sheikh via their support forums and he has gone out of his way to help. They even ftp'd in and altered the sideshow script to make them work happily together.
These guys are an excellent example of how to do support right.
Thanks for making your Qualified review, it is appreciated, thanks again.
But the plugin does exactly what it should do: inform (warn) visitors of your page of cookies usage.
As our sites are running in and for Europe, we have to agree EU law and put a visible information for our visitors for accepting or declining cookies.
We have tried some other solutions earlier but nothing worked like we thought it had to be.
Except this one: Cookie Monster.
OK, you have to pay for, but you will get a fast and professional support in case of any issues.
We had some during the configuration which were easily to fix and after minutes the plugin was up and running.
The 5 star rating includes price, installation and support.
The documentation at developers site can be a little bit more informational in the jQuery issues.
But overall we can recommend Cookie Monster for European webmaster and business.
Thanks for taking the time to make a review , it is appreciated. Glad to have been of assistance to you .
Excellent value for money and shows that you care about protecting your customers whilst complying with the latest legislation.
Well done Mustaq Sheikh for getting this to market in the nick of time.
Thanks for taking the time to make a qualified review , it is appreciated. Glad to have been of assistance to you .
I was planning to use it on a large Joomla 2.5.4 news and information site that has a large membership base. Installing the plugin was very simple. I am reasonable familiar with Joomla. However after purchasing and installing the system plugin, I ran into difficulties. The accept/decline box would not appear on the site even though I had cleared all cookies and approached the loading of the site from the perspective of a first time visitor. I used the software authors support service to find a solution to my problem. To their credit they did offer me support & help in trying to resolve my problem. They made a claim that the fault was a JQuery conflict from another installed module and advised me what to do. Their solution was too complex for me personally to put into practice. They did visit my site and personally verified that it did work. SO full marks for the level of support. For a short period of time, I indeed verified on various systems that it worked but for some unexplained reason the plugin ceased to work and I emphasise that no changes to my site or any configurations caused this to occur. It simply stopped working!! Frustrating...!! So I asked a software technical colleague to look over the plugin and he reported back that he cannot understand himself how or why it works. So my honest constructive opinion here is that you should exercise caution before purchasing, downloading and installing this plugin. I suggest that you browse the authors website and try to determine if the plugin will actually work on your site. They do offer some advice regarding this. Several people have reported on the authors site that they have had some difficulties with the plugin and I am simply adding my bit to this. I have disabled and removed the plugin. I can only give this plugin an average rating mostly refelcting the quality of their support versus the ease of the plugins functionality. It might work on your site, but then again, depending on other plugins/modules etc., that make up your Joomla website - it might not!
Thanks for taking the time to share your opinion.
