I'll push it later to the addons site.

For the reference page you can either use:
* a topic (simple and no messing)
* SP if you already have it installed (install SP just for one page seems overkill)
* the Pages addon.
Or create a page by yourself. :P

@emanuele I think this was not inserted into the addons site, or at least I wasn't able to find it

As a Note from me:  in Europe specially in Germany​ it's not allowed to set any cookie until ECL is accepted !!  Also not a session cookie or what else ...

Our new Forum system have a ECL that exactly do that ...

Interesting fact what seems to be the German government doesn't respect its own rules then: https://www.bundesregierung.de/Webs/Breg/EN/Homepage/_node.html
It sets me 2 (session) cookies and it doesn't even have a banner or something informing me these cookies are set.
amazon.de that sets some 7/8 cookies and I don't even allow the js on the ad system... :-\
spiegel.de (just a random site I found on google that seemed somehow relevant), instead, sets something like 23 cookies (some session, some lasting few days, some lasting a month), including google analytics, and I can't see any hint on the screen that cookies are used (actually, not even searching for cookie reveals anything).

I admit we are lacking in the area, but don't give me the "this is important" propaganda, it's just a law that nobody cares about.
The day someone will be fined for not showing a notice about cookies I'll consider it a critical issue, otherwise I have other much pressing issues to care. :)

And BTW: https://webdevlaw.uk/2017/01/10/cookie-law-reform-announcement/
So, in about a year the rules will change again...

It's the same in Italy, or at least it should be this way but there are very few websites that are respecting this rule. When this law came out I lost a couple of nights reading all the information available and investigate some famous websites. The results were similar to what Emanuele found, and only a few websites set the cookies only after the user accept it.

Lol. I am not ready to talk about the cookie laws or comment any of them. I was merely suggesting something that could be used to create an addon. Not that I could not do it myself but I am kinda lazy lately. :P

Well .. I don't known what other Sides do and what not .. but I say it is possible to browse (limited) a side without any cookie. This you can see on our side ...

But .. this is only possible with a lot of changes in the code .. and that is one point we do in our new Forum system  ;)

Actually I visit portamx from time to time, though I may not log in, so, I kinda knew all about your new forum @Feline, including the cookie thing. And it runs well with your portal too. Congratulations for that.

I also hope you can upgrade that subforums mod so that it can be used with your forum users/followers. It definitely has its own fans though one of them have decided to move on to ElkArte. ;) As you might already know, I adjusted it to work for ElkArte with the help of @emanuele and @Spuds and it is available in the addon section.

Keep up the good work and all the best @Feline.

I often stick with e-recht24.de, a website giving information about all that matters (for admins). So I installed the cookie notification too.  ::)  I used this one, it's 100% local stored. No script from another site needs to be loaded.

Edit: Hey @Spuds, I got the error with the link inserted at the beginning of the text, not at the cursor position! I wrote the text above, marked the part "this one", clicked on the URL BBC button, inserted the URL https://cookie-bar.eu/, and the code jumps at the very beginning of the text.  :o

@Jorin, I am not sure whether you are answering to this topic or the addon created at http://www.elkarte.net/community/index.php?topic=4328.0 but I guess it should be the later. But I am not going to move this post yet before you confirm this or you can move it yourself later on.

In any event, the addon does use the script from external source as stated in its (only) code:
Code: [Select]
	$context['html_headers'] .= '
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/cookieconsent2/3.0.3/cookieconsent.min.css" />
<script src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/cookieconsent2/3.0.3/cookieconsent.min.js"></script>
<script>
window.addEventListener("load", function(){
window.cookieconsent.initialise({
  "palette": {
"popup": {
  "background": "#000"
},
"button": {
  "background": "#f1d600"
}
  }
})});
</script>
';
Clearly, this can be downloaded to EA and use as an internal source rather than external without much hassle. The only good thing about this external source is it is using CDN[1]which won't affect your site very much if you are using the addon as it is.
Talking about CDN, I was practically playing around with it when my server went off two months ago. May be I'll post and talk about it in here later.

I posted it here because I don't use your addon for this matter. So why should I post this in the addon thread? It's a general post about cookie notification handling, so in my opinion it should stay here, don't you think?
