Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
Cookie Confirm is the ultimate Joomla cookie control extension, which helps you comply with the EU Cookie Law. It's easy to setup and it really blocks cookies unless they're allowed to set (¹). Blocked content is automatically replaced with placeholders, including an ‘Accept Cookies’ button. Visitors can change their preferences at any time via the cookie shortcut at the bottom of the page, which also shows their current preference.

This extension does not work with Joomla’s system cache plugin. However it does work with the Joomla cache of the global settings. You should have no issues if you use a supported Joomla version and a website that’s developed with good coding standards. Please see the system requirements on our site.

(¹) The Joomla session cookie will be set if you've enabled logging, because it's impossible to log in a s

Okay, this is a rather expensive extension. But if you are looking for a flexible, easy customizable and powerful extension, that even works great on multilingual have to choose this one!

A long overdue review for an excellent extension...

Cookie control is very easy to use and has a great deal of well written documentation.

It is virtually ready to go 'out of the box'. Many sites will only need to enter their domain name to get it running. In addition to that, I only had to add the class names of elements I wanted hidden without the consent of the user.

I had one question for support (that I missed in the documentation) that was answered in minutes.

A great extension that really got me out of trouble with this daft cookie law!

This is the best Cookie Law extension I have ever used and I tried a few ;). I must admit I was a bit overwhelmed at first, but in a couple of minutes I got it working perfectly on my sites. Also if you cannot figure out how it works, they provide good documentation and a great support.
Last and not least, this extension is not only for being well with Cookie Law, but it also empowers your users and allow them to change their mind regarding cookies. This is a great point if you do respect your users.

Cookie Confirm is without doubt the best extension in it's class. It does what is says on the box, and is easy to set up and use. The backend is well organised and . Furthermore the developer Jurian has carefully thought about core aspects of the International requirements for Cookie awareness and empowerment of the end user, as well as ensuring the output design is also well formed and suitable for use on any site, even though a few more neutral colour background options would enable blending into more web designs (although the point is that the message is clearly displayed). That said, many J extensions are written with the best intentions and functionality but are let down by awful front end presentation. I place this component stands alongside other greats including Akeeba Backup, Admin Tools Pro, K2 and JCE. I use this on ALL my sites and have no doubt it will continue to evolve and improve. I should also state that support I have experienced has been courteous and outstanding.

This extension is very easy to install and configure and great that it also keeps a log of visitors who accept or decline cookies. Simply the best one I have purchased.

I personally love macarons and make them myself, but it makes me want to go home and bake! :-) Great Component.

I like the graphs and charts to track visitors and then Google analytic segment for tracking.

My only critique is that when you pay on paypal and you are sent back to your website it is not very clear where you have to download the component.

I would much prefer a link in an email which allows you click and download.

I run 2 businesses and don't have time to spend searching around a site for something I have already paid for.

I'm not downgrading a star, but it would be good to see a change.

Super job.

Thank you for your awesome review! It really means a lot to me :)

Also thank you for your valuable feedback. I've added an extensive FAQ to the invoice with links to the downloads, documentation, support and more. So this won't be an issue anymore. I'll send you a copy by e-mail.

Kind regards,

not only is this the best cookie component (I think I must have tried all of them) but the support is superb. Within a couple of hours of having a problem and putting in a support ticket I had a reply and the developer worked on a fix.
In addition there is readable and useful documentation although for basic use the options are self explanatory.

One of my reasons for choosing this solution was the promise of support for multilanguage sites.
The extension, which I have now translated to Norwegian (bokmål completed, nynorsk will take some more time as it is not my primary language) is excellent.

Installation is quick and simple, and there are advanced features for those that need those. For my bilingual site a simple language variable override allowed me to specify the link to privacy policy in each language without modifying anything.

I have also suggested a functional improvement, and the feedback was immediate. It is being investigated already.

Hi, this extension is really worth the money. Installed and configured it without any problems. It has all the options you need for cookie control, also anonymize IP for GA and content plugin. And support is quick and efficient. I sugessted a small improvement and Jurian implemented it in couple of days. Documentation is also great. I'm definitely a happy costumer!

This extension is just brilliant. For now I have only one complaint, but I'll serve it at the end.

I was loosing time with other non-commercial extension for bloking cookies. To block GA and my own cookies it was ok, but to block more 3rd party cookies I just couldn't find anything right.

Cookie Confirm is just what I need for y several websites with social buttons, Youtube embeded players, maps and some other applications. Yes, it is commercial, but the price is very reasonable for what you get.

With Cookie Confirm you get an excellent component and plugin that works very smooth and fast. The administration is very clear and easy to set up.

Another great thing for me is developers website, which is very informative (check for example Documentation!) and helpful with lot's of useful stuff. Only with a help of documentation for CC I've configured how to block other 3rd party cookies and it was very very easy to di it. Thanks for that, saved me a lot of time!

Of course I needed an assistant with some other stuff too, opened a new ticket and the support is very fast and just perfect.

Ok, and now my only complaint for now. Is there really have to be that hamburger cookie? I know you meant French cookies... :) I rather prefer some other, maybe more professional looking icon. But that's just my opinion.

That's it. Thank you for everything and keep on the good thing!

Thank you for your extensive review and feedback, mladiucitelj!

On popular request we have redesigned the Privacy Settings button, which indeed looked a bit like a hamburger. It's now a small monochrome button which clearly represents a cookie and the consent status. We used CSS3 and a vector icon font which is also super crisp on retina displays. Since it's not an image anymore you can very easily edit it with CSS if you want to. If you update to Cookie Confirm 2.7.0, the button will automatically be updated.

I was looking for a cookie extension and on reading the reviews and specifications of a number of those available I settled on Cookie Confirm.

I had a small server specific issue installing Cookie Confirm but on submitting a support ticket this was quickly and professionally resolved.

Many thanks for producing a simple to use and extremely powerful Joomla Extension along with providing an exemplary support service.

Excellent product and developer.

- ugly hamburger in de corner
Owner's reply

Thank you for your review and feedback!

The 'hamburger' in the corner is meant to be a cookie. It's actually a macaron, which is a French cookie. I have to admit that it also looks like a hamburger. I can change it if a considerable amount of users find this an issue.

Nevertheless it's possible to use an image of your liking by using a template override. Also you can hide it by disabling the privacy settings if you don't want to use those settings (I don't recommend this though).

Had a few issues installing (all of which were my fault) and the support was fantastic. They even installed the extension for me and then made sure everything was working correctly. Brilliant customer service. I wish all extensions went to this must trouble to keep their customers happy.

This extension is very easy to install and configure and great that it also keeps a log of visitors who accept or decline cookies (as is probably required by Dutch law). And the support is so EXCELLENT, I just couldn't believe it. I'm quite new to joomla and making websites, so I could'nt figure out how to block the Statcounter cookies. I mailed Jurian (the developer) and he mailed back immediately and helped me out tremendously, spending quite a lot of time to solve the problem as I don't know anything about php and I also had the permissions wrong...But he was so kind to help and he changed something in the index.php and now it works great and he even took the time to explain me more about the permissions. I also had a problem with an extension of another developer, and Jurian fixed this for me too. I highly recommend this extension and I thank Jurian for this excellent extension and support!

Thanks for your kind review, Elizabeth!

It was necessarily to edit the index.php (of the template), since the Statcounter was loaded directly from the template. No Joomla! core files were harmed during this operation ;).

Joomla! has a great community and I'm sure you'll also love it. We're glad to have you on board!

I am writing this review because I like the great support.

Very good purchase for managing cookies!

Searching for a good cookie-extension that realy works and is user friendly I ran into this one.
And after watching the demo and reading the documentation I decided to buy it.
And I'm glad I did it because this extension is very nice designed and works great!
I started with version 1.0.4 but yesterday I upgraded to 2.0.0 (stable) and this version is even greater. More features, easier setup and it works great, even in all my subdomains.

Great job, thanks Jurian!

Today I bought this extension and after paying, the files were not visible for download. 5 minutes after I send my ticket I had an answer and 10 minutes later the problem was solved (although is was on Sunday-evening). GREAT support and not to forget a very simple installation!!
