With CookieHint you can add a cookie notification to your Joomla! website with a few steps.
You just need to install and activate our plugin in your admin area.

Our plugin offers multiple settings:

1. Note link
You can link to your imprint, disclaimer or privacy policy. Just add your specific URL.

2. CSS
You can specify the design of the cookie notice via CSS files. You can choose between your custom CSS files and our default CSS files. You can select your CSS file after uploading to 'plugins/system/cookiehint/css'.

3. HTML / PHP code
If you want to change the entire layout of the cookie notice, you can use your own script. Select your php file you want to use. It will be visible and selectable in the drop-down menu once it has been uploaded to the directory 'plugins/system/cookiehint/include'.

4. Multilingualism
translated default languages: German, English, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Dutch, Czech, French

You can also use language keys in your admin area to change every translation and text.
Go to: Extensions > Languages > Overrides
You can find the language keys under Extensions > Plugins > CookieHint

5. Cookie Blocker
If you want, our plugin won't allow the storage of cookies.

6. Decline Button
You can set up a decline button and visitors are redirected to a COOKIE / GDPR info site, including an explanation why the redirect has happend. You can also set a URL to a different explanation site.

7. Storage life of the confirmation cookie
Set how long the confirmation of the cookie notification is valid. After that period of time it gets invalid and the visitor has to accept the cookie notification again.

8. Many, many, and more
We're constantly improving our plugin and expanding its functionality. You got an idea or miss a function? Tell us and give feedback through

Does what it says, blocks all cookies (also session cookies) if configured, one of the few cookie blockers that really do their job.
