This Joomla extension is no longer maintained or supported. It still works under Joomla 3.x with PHP 7.x, I can’t say anything about setups beyond that. If you would like to continue work on the plugin, feel free to use the code under the terms of the GNU General Public License. Find a new name for the plugin and keep the original author’s name in the code.

EasyCookieInfo Free Joomla Module

The EasyCookieInfo module displays a message, informing the visitor about the use of cookies on the website. Optionally, a link to a page with further information (e. g. a privacy policy page) can be added. The visitor may hide the message by accepting it.

The module supports multilingual websites and does not depend on the user having javascript enabled.

Example / Demo

The page you are looking at right now is not powered by Joomla, but you can see the working Cookie message at the bottom of this page. If it’s not there, you may have already accepted and thus hidden it. Click here to bring it back.

How It Works

After installation you will probably find a disabled module instance already added to the modules list. If not, add a new module and choose “EasyCookieInfo” as module type. Place the module in any of your template’s module positions (preferably at the end of your document) and choose “Menu assignment”: “On all pages”.

You only need one instance of the module, even on multilingual websites. Translations can be added on the module’s settings tab.

You can easily change the look of the module to fit your website design by making use of Joomla’s overrides – that is, by the way, the main reason, why this has been developed as a module and not as a plugin.

If you use EasyCookieInfo, please post a rating and a review at the Joomla Extensions Directory.
