Joomla 1.5 users - please be patient. I am still backporting the J2.5 version! Joomla 1.5 is so inflexible compared to 2.5, I may not be able to replicate all of the functionality...
All of my extensions are free and none of my extensions display advertisements or links to my sites or services. If you feel that I have blessed you, then you can bless me by making a contribution to fund future development. Visit the "Website" link to make a contribution.
The public will never see 90% of my work, as I generally work on internal tools for my customers. When I can, I turn those tools into free extensions.
My reputation is built with free extensions for Joomla, so it's very important to me that I protect that reputation. I think I'm doing a good job.
A pitty that I have to change language files to change the message.
And it would be realy great when the visitor is acccepting cookies to set a cookie for this. The status is now not remebered for ever.
Starting with version 1.6, a cookie is set to prevent display after cookies have been accepted. It is a 30 day self-renewing cookie.
As far as the language files go, I'm offering this as a multi-lingual extension. I can't very well have an editable text field for every language - so I went with the language files. I wish I could please everyone...
Using the language manager and overriding the English strings is really the way to go. It's easy and reliable! Best of all - it survives upgrades!
Had a slight issue with installation, due to the particular configuration of my site but a quick e-mail to the author and he resolved it the same afternoon. It doesn't get better than that!
Bug reports work! This is a prime example of a user who had a configuration that I hadn't tested. Once the report was made, I set out to fix it straight away. Thanks for the great review!
After that it was all plain sailing and easy to use.
e-Privacy seems to be the most effective solution I have tried. It's also the easiest to install.
I have a couple of suggestions which I think would help improve the plug in.
It would be nice to have the ability to set the text in the frontend notification from the extension manager parameters, rather than editing the language file directly.
The ability to show or hide the link to the EU directive would also be a handy option to have.
Nice work and thanks for sharing.
I LIKE IT!!
Language, no. I am sticking with language files because you can use the language manager to override the English text, and other language files to enable other languages
