Home Forums Other EU Cookie Directive – feedback on this solution (on Joomla! 2.5) Re: EU Cookie Directive – feedback on this solution (on Joomla! 2.5)



I have not packaged it up as a module yet, want to finish it to a release standard first.

Basically this solution is a login/logout hack – the accept button actually logs the visitor in as a default user (assigned to a group that has access rights to anything that “has cookies” – defined by a View Access Level), this is the only extra that they get above public visitors.

The block button simply logs them out.

But visitors don’t see this as a login, as they don’t give out any information or register with the site.

As soon as I am happy with it I will let you know and you can have a copy. I have not worked with Joomla 1.5, so I will not be converting it – someone else might. I plan to release it on github, so it can be forked and converted.

My plan is to have it ready by 18th May 2012 – 1 week before the directive becomes UK law – hopefully this will give people time to install and test it in the wild.
