Yes sure thing, but that phpBB cookie notice is poorly implemented at best!
I refuse to add bloated JS script just for a notice that does not even work correctly to begin with.
Bloating pages with useless scripts is as bad as not having a properly implemented cookie notice... (for example you are also forcing an user/s to waste bandwidth for a useless script )
so an Admin might as well use something like this:
Code: Select all
<div class="alert alert-info fade in">
<button class="close" data-dismiss="alert"><span class="awe-remove-circle"></span></button>
<strong>Cookie Notice:</strong>Look ma I'm a useless cookie notice that at least does not require a bloated JS file<a href="#" class="postlink-local" data-original-title="" title="">Cookie Law</a>

There are three basic rules for complying with the Cookie Law
The rules on cookies are in regulation 6. The basic rule is that you must:(source - ICO : https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/gu ... hnologies/)
- tell people the cookies are there;
- explain what the cookies are doing and why; and
- get the person’s consent to store a cookie on their device.
Furthermore this implementation does not, as far as my understanding goes, comply with the requirements of some other EU countries.
Those points in the quote are just basic...
A proper cookie notice is not just a notice. It needs to kill/stop all kind of tracking scripts
that run in a page if the user chooses to "not agree" to that notice. For example google analytics, Google tags, ads related scripts and many many more!
Therefore I left that out on purpose and I prefer the Admins who need the cookie notice to implement a solution they prefer and actually work correctly, on their own...I'm new to this, What are Cookies Anyway?
Cookies are a kind of short term memory for the web. They are stored in your browser and enable a site to 'remember' little bits of information between pages or visits.
