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 the latest version of Joomla 2.5 or 3.1 and a website that’s developed with good coding standards.
(¹) The Joomla session cookie will be set if you've enabled logging, because it's impossible to do this in a secure way without setting this cookie. If you don't want to set the session cookie, you have to disable logging (which will also disable statistics). The rest will just work fine then.
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!
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.
+ Easy to install
+ Easy to configure
+ Easy to customize and style
+ Very good manual
- ugly hamburger in de corner
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).
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!
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!
Given the update in privacy laws relating to cookies within the EU, we needed to have an option where users and visitors have the option to accept or opt out.
We don't want to take the chance of getting taken to court.
There were 2 components options which we considered seriously, the documentation for this component is very good, beyond a quick start guide, each option is actually explained.
The component covers all the options you need to comply with the law and track how users choice, with logging for future evidence (hopefully never needed).
The component operates on a subscription model for updates and support - given the level of service that is a bargain.
We had a problem with the operation and the developer: Jurian Even - spent time to find and trace down the problem. It turned out to be components from 2 different developers not following joomla guidelines, he even wrote a code fix for 1 of them (we submitted it to the other developer).
Our website is running faster, since he found the defective components.
So in summary, the product is a complete solution, the developer and his service, solid.
We have no qualms about recommending him and his product. Cookie Confirm 2.0
Thanks for your review! Of course all the others as well!
The reason why there is no Joomla 1.5 version, is that J1.5 is almost end-of-life. It would take a lot of time to make the extension compatible with J1.5. In my opinion wasted time, since J1.5 websites needs to be migrated soon anyway. Beside that, the most extension developers will drop support for J1.5 soon or already did that.
I will use this time to further improve Cookie Confirm, so you could all benefit from it.
In the Netherlands, the law is not very clear, but we need to handle with it.
This extension is very easy to install and to configure.
With all the options in it, it is very usefull.
I think this extension should be an Editors pick.
It is easy to setup, looking awesome on the front-end on all the devices and browsers I have tried, and then it is very easy for the front-end users to use/confirm cookies and edit if they want to deny them again. (An awesome icon in the corner where the settings are keept)
And best of all: It do the job right!
The support is FAST and I mean really FAST!
I was having an issue with my theme but Jurian from support solved it in a few minutes. (It was not Cookie confirm there was the problem but my theme.)
So this Cookie extension I will keep because it do what it is supposed to do, and it does it with a beautiful simple interface.
