Cookie Confirm ComponentPlugin

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. Cookie Confirm uses a responsive CSS3 template which also works great on tablets and mobile phones.

Cookie Confirm is the only Joomla cookie extension which is powered by a component. It has lot's of neat features and it's powered by the Joomla! RAD Framework (FOF), which is also used by the high-quality extensions of Akeeba. So Cookie Confirm is definitely powered by a stable, well tested and state-of-the-art framework.

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 secure way without setting

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!

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!
Owner's reply

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!

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!!

I feel it necessary to write a quick review.
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

This extension is really good and do the job excellent. Aften som install trouble on two sites with some very old jQuery, it just works. The support is at least 6 stars. The developer answered my mail in just 20 min. both on a saturday and sunday evening, and stayed on troubleshooting until the problem was solved. For me he went on until 2am monday morning. It is alot more than I ever could have asked for.

This component works perfectly just out of the box. Install it on your website, adjust the settings and you're ready to go. Currently it is J2.5 only, too bad not J1.5 since I also have J1.5 sites.
Owner's reply

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.

This extension (a complete Joomla-Component) has you need to handle the European Cookielaw.
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.
