The Joomla! plugin by iubenda – at the moment in public beta – allows you to automate the implementation of the cookie law rules, drastically reducing the necessity for direct interventions in the site's code.
The other scripts for which there aren’t automatic blocks yet – and which install cookies that require prior user consent – should be “wrapped” in the templates or pages using these comments:
For example a conversion pixel for AdWords would be handled this way:
If however there are parts of HTML / IMG / IFRAME, you’ll need to take these steps:
<!--IUB_COOKIE_POLICY_START--> <iframe src="... <img src=" width="300" height="150"> <!--IUB_COOKIE_POLICY_END-->
In the event of continued browsing by the user, cookie use preferences will be set to “yes”, the banner removed and the cookies released. Moreover, banners and blocking codes will not be delivered on subsequent visits by users who have already given their consent (and such preferences will be updated at each subsequent visit).
For API calls and xmlrpc we suggest the parameter
Passing this parameter on a website will disactivate the iubenda script and therefore avoid all parsing/replacing operations. There’s a “jump the parsing” option on the extension settings page.
###Changelog = 1.2.0 = * revamped admin interface * improved iubenda script handling * introduced experimental script blocking method = 1.1.3 = * Fixed various bugs related to the new parsing engine introduced in 1.1.0 = 1.1.0 = * Intro of a new experimental parsing engine * now detects Google maps automatically = 1.0 = * First plugin version.
