CookieManagementBanner by Adrian Jones

Cookie management banner allows users to manage tracking cookies.

This repo is no longer being maintained - instead you might want to use PrivacyWire


This module adds a cookie management banner for GDPR compliance.

The user can accept all cookies or they can choose to not accept tracking/marketing cookies.

Module config options allow you to:

  • define all text and button labels (multi-language support)
  • manually increment the cookie policy version which forces the user to review their consent again
  • option to limit display of banner to users only in European Union (by IP address)
  • option to auto accept based on any interaction from the user with the site
  • position selection (top or bottom overlay, or content pushed down from the top)

It comes with basic default styling which is easily overwritten by site CSS

The module sets various values to the dataLayer array which works together with Google Tag Manager - please read through the code in /assets/js/CookieManagementBanner.js to get a better idea of how this works and what is made available for GTM.

You can wrap your tracking/marketing cookie code in a check for the localstorage key of: pwcmbAllowCookies

if(localStorage.getItem('pwcmbAllowCookies') == 'y')

You can also provide a link on your site (probably in the footer) like this that will allow the user to show the banner even after they have saved their preferences / accepted.

<a href="#cookies" class="js-pwcmb-notice-toggle">Manage Your Cookies</a>

NOTE: AdBlockPlus and other browser adblockers may prevent users from seeing the banner. This is not considered a bug and currently there are no plans to attempt to "fix" this.

“The end client and designer love the ease at which they can update the website. Training beyond how to log in wasn’t even necessary since ProcessWire’s default interface is straightforward.” —Jonathan Lahijani
