PrivacyWire - Cookie Management & async external asset loading

Recommended Posts

Hi @joshua and fellow cookie munchers. I might have spotted another glitch in the cookie matrix.

What I did/tested: 

I changed the version number in the settings.

What happened:

  1. nothing until I cleared the ProCache cache (which is fine I guess), then afterwards...
  2. the cookie banner showed up again and asked for consent (which was expected) BUT...
  3. all external media assets, tracking scripts, etc. were still loading (which was unexpected)
  4. giving consent closed the banner (fine) BUT it came right back on the next page

Why did it happen:

The test user had already given consent and therefore and old entry existed in the local storage which said sure give me cookies and whatever BUT it didn't recognize the new version and therefore didn't revoke the old opt-in/consent on first load with the new version AND wasn't updated after opting in again.

TL;DR

Changing the version number in the settings does not reset/clear/delete/revoke all previously given and stored local storage settings and won't update after giving consent again to the new version.

Thanks @wbmnfktr for noticing this!

There really was a bug with the version number and async loading of scripts etc.

I fixed this in V0.2.5.

After changing the version number in the backend (and refreshing ProCache - especially when you have activated the option to minify local Javascript) PrivacyWire will check the version number first before handling the elements requiring consent.

Today there are two updates for PrivacyWire (newest Version V0.2.7 )

1. The update of elements after giving consent now observs more attributes (also srcset for responsive images and width/height attributes - especially good for iFrames)

2. When the user wants to choose the detailled cookies, there is now a option to show another "Accept All" Button instead of the "Toggle" Button - configurable via module config.

Is there an opposite option to only show an element if a specific data-category isn't allowed?

I added a feature for this in todays 0.3.0 (not pushed the release tag yet, as there was a lot of rewriting to implement this feature).

If you want to show an opt-in element instead of the consent-required element, just add a data-attribute data-ask-consent="1". Here is an example:

<iframe src="" data-src="https://www.example.com/" data-category="marketing" data-ask-consent="1" frameborder="0" height="400" width="400"></iframe>

In this case, the iframe gets only loaded, when cookies of type "marketing" are allowed. If not, the user will be asked for consent. The text of the consent-window is configurable in the module config.
The markup of this message also includes an css class with the type of cookie, if you want to style them specifically.

@joshua thanks for the module.
would you consider changing the header tag into a div?

<header class="privacywire-header"></header>

Some might using page header in their css-files without a class. It might get into style conflicts. What do you think?

@ngrmm I had a similar issue and went kind of a different route and added role="main" to my main header and excluded it later on in my PrivacyWire CSS.

header:not([role=main]) {
    // here you go
}

For the moment that should work out quiet nice without any or at least only minor issues - at least when you are working with less, sass, SCSS and similar.

Thanks a lot for this wonderful module! It works like a charm, except for one little problem:  When I use the "Accept all" button I have to reload the website for the changes to take effect. Selecting specific categories and clicking the "Save preferences" button has immediate effect. Is this an indented behaviour or am I missing something here?

@ngrmm thanks for your input. Semantically header tags are allowed to have multiple instances within one page (e.g. one main page header and one header per <article> etc.).
But I see the point - within the cookie banner a <header> might not be the best semantical element to choose.

To provide backwards compatibility (if someone has already styled the PrivacyWire <header> via CSS) I will add an option to configure the output tag between <header> and <div>.

@snck Thank you!

Normally the "Accept all" button should do the exact same thing. I'm looking into this right now.

I fixed these two topics in 0.3.2.
@snck: There really was a bug with the "Accept all" Button - thanks for noticing!

@ngrmm: You can choose now in the module config which header tag you want 😉
For keeping backwards compatibility, the default value still is <header>.

@joshua what do you think about the idea to have a style.css file instead of the styling inside your js?

@ngrmm That actually was my first type of implementation (separating css and js), but as the CSS file would be very small (554 Byte), it actually is slower to load these two connections vs. loading only one JS file with the CSS included ( even with HTTP/2 - I tested it alot!).

This is the total amount of styles used by PrivacyWire (beautified for better readability):

.privacywire {
    position: fixed;
    bottom: -250%;
    left: 0;
    right: 0;
    box-shadow: 0 -1px 3px rgba(0, 0, 0, .3);
    opacity: 0;
    background: #fff;
    z-index: 1;
    padding: 1rem;
    transition: bottom .3s ease-in, opacity 1s ease-out
}

.privacywire .privacywire-header {
    font-weight: 700
}

.show-banner .privacywire.privacywire-banner,
.show-message .privacywire.privacywire-message,
.show-options .privacywire.privacywire-options {
    bottom: 0;
    opacity: 1;
    transition: bottom .3s ease, opacity .3s ease
}

.privacywire button[hidden],
[data-ask-consent-rendered="1"],
div.privacywire-ask-consent-blueprint {
    display: none
}

You could do the following:

1. Uncheck the config checkbox "Add basic CSS Styling":

2. Add the styles to your own stylesheet.

Nice work!

Question:

I'm finding myself in need of many changes in the banner template, so I had to hook-replace the module's 'render' method.

Would be useful to isolate the path retrieving code in separate hookable functions? Like this:

    /**
     * checks for a banner template alternate path
     * @return string   the path of the banner template file
     */
    public function ___getBannerTemplate()
    {
        return $this->wire('config')->paths->$this . 'PrivacyWireBanner.php';
    }

    /**
     * checks for a javascript file alternate path
     * @return string   the path of the banner template file
     */
    public function ___getJsFile()
    {
        return ($this->add_basic_css_styling) ? $this->wire('config')->urls->$this . "js/PrivacyWire.js" : $this->wire('config')->urls->$this . "js/PrivacyWireUnstyled.js";
    }

Then, I could use it (I am using it, actually) like this (in /site/ready.php):


// my front pages are all extending a FrontPage class
// see https://processwire.com/blog/posts/pw-3.0.152/#new-ability-to-specify-custom-page-classes
if (page() instanceof FrontPage) {

    $wire->addHookAfter('PrivacyWire::getBannerTemplate', function ($event) {
        $event->replace = true;
        $default_path = $event->return;
        $filename = pathinfo($default_path, PATHINFO_BASENAME);
        // my override is in /site/templates/modules/PrivacyWire/PrivacyWireBanner.php
        $override_path = paths()->templates.'modules/PrivacyWire/'.$filename;
        $event->return = is_readable($override_path) ? $override_path : $default_path;
    });

}

 

Or even simpler (for me 😂), those could be two new config keys, like 'alternateBannerTemplate' and 'alternateJsFile'.

 

This would also cover the case of needing to change the header tag, so it could be dropped (just a thought, don't hit me in the head, you valiant head tag config defenders 😁).

@The G Your wish is my command 😅

I just added another config option for an alternative banner template file! In addition (to be even more flexible 😄 ) I included your idea of the hookable methods for banner template and js file.

grafik.thumb.png.deb17e56c5937565eb3a2b72a180b36c.png

/**
* checks for a alternate banner template path
* @return string   the path of the banner template file
**/
public function ___getBannerTemplateFile()
{
	return (!empty($this->alternate_banner_template) && file_exists($this->wire('config')->paths->root . $this->alternate_banner_template)) ? $this->wire('config')->paths->root . $this->alternate_banner_template : $this->wire('config')->paths->$this . 'PrivacyWireBanner.php';
}

So now you have to decide whether you prefer to hook or configurate 😄

--> 0.3.3 <--

So, excited to use the updated version as I was, there was no time for RTFM - even if there was clearly written

without leading slash

, I merrily entered

/site/templates/modules/PrivacyWire/PrivacyWireBanner.php

and BANG!, ProcessWire shouted at me for wanting to use a not allowed path (because of the resulting double slash). I'm still trembling!

Since it breaks so hard, I'm wondering if the input could be somehow forced to loose the leading slashes forgotten by irresponsible people like yours truly. Sadly, I'm not well versed (yet!) in module configuration input validation/modification.

Or at least, write "without leading slash" in bold letters 😅

Hey @joshua! Would you consider making this module installable via Composer?

Technically this just requires a) adding a composer.json file where you specify project name, type ("pw-module"), and a dependency for installer plugin (preferably wireframe-framework/processwire-composer-installer), b) adding the project to packagist.org, and c) (optional, but recommended) setting up a webhook between GitHub and Packagist so that new releases become automatically available at Packagist (or giving Packagist the permission to handle this step).

Here's an example composer.json from ProcessRedirects: https://github.com/apeisa/ProcessRedirects/blob/master/composer.json.

Thanks in advance for considering this 🙂

Hello all.

I decided to try PrivacyWire as had a request for one of my friends websites. So I proceeded to install and configure the module as needed, however I am stuck at how would the cookie consent appear on Home page (banner is not showing automatically). Can someone point me what am I missing as I checked 3 times the configs and did not find a markup to insert or a template to point to in the admin?

Hello @wbmnfktr

I shall stop coding during late hours of the night. You were absolutely right that during my initial tests on localhost, I've slipped to close properly the body tag and that was causing the issue.

Thank you very much for the spotting and sharing what was obvious. It is all showing properly now, so I only would style it to fit the frontend.

Hi @joshua

i tried to have an iframe only be shown if consent is given.
This is my code:

<div data-category='external_media' data-ask-consent='0'>
	<div class='video_content' >";
		<iframe src='https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/XXXXXXXXXX?enablejsapi=1' width='640' height='390' frameborder='0'></iframe>
	</div>
</div>

If consent for external_media is not given, the module asks you to give consent. „To load this element, it is required to consent to the following cookie category: External Media.“ 
But if consent is given, it does not show the div.video_content or the iframe. I tested to have some plaintext instead of the iframe and it works.

So this works:

<div data-category='external_media' data-ask-consent='0'>
	<div class='video_content' >
		<p>hello world!</p>
	</div>
</div>

And it looks like as if  0 or 1 for data-ask-consent does not make any difference.

UPDATE:
my fault, this works!
 

<div class='video_content' >";
	<iframe src='' data-src='https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/XXXXXXXXXX?enablejsapi=1' data-category='external_media' data-ask-consent='0' width='640' height='390' frameborder='0'></iframe>
</div>

      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire is a module to log page visits of the CMS. The records including some basic information like IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Please note that this module doesn't claim to be the best or most accurate.
      Advantages
      One of the biggest advantage is that this module doesn't require any external service like Google Analytics or similar. You don't have to modify your templates either. There is also no Javascript or image required.
      Disadvantages
      There is only one disadvantage. This module doesn't record visits if the browser loads the page from its browser cache. To prevent the browser from loading the page from its cache, add the following meta tags to the header of your page:
      <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" /> How to use
      The records can be accessed via the Setup-menu of the CMS backend. The first dropdown control changes the view mode.

      Detailed records
      View mode "Detailed records" shows all visits of the selected day individually with IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Click the update button to see new added records.

      Cached visitor records
      View modes other than "Detailed records" are cached visitor counts which will be collected on a daily basis from the detailed records. This procedure ensures a faster display even with a large number of data records. Another advantage is that the detailed records can be deleted while the cache remains. The cache can be updated manually or automatically in a specified time period. Multiple visits from the same IP address on the same day are counted as a single visitor.

      Upgrade from older versions
      Cached visitor counts is new in version 1.0.8. If you just upgraded from an older version you might expire a delay or even an error 500 if you display cached visitor counts. The reason for this is that the cache has to be created from the records. This can take longer if your database contains many records. Sometimes it might hit the maximally execution time. Don't worry about that and keep reloading the page until the cache is completely created.
      Special Feature
      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire can record the time a visitor viewed the page. This feature is deactivated by default. To activate open the module configuration page and activate "Record view time". If activated you will find a new column "S." in the records which means the time of view in seconds. With every page request, a Javascript code is inserted directly after the <body> tag. Every time the visitor switches to another tab or closes the tab, this script reports the number of seconds the tab was visible. The initial page request is recorded only as a hyphen (-).

      Settings
      You can access the module settings by clicking the Configuration button at the bottom of the records page. The settings page is also available in the menu: Modules->Configure->ProcessPageViewStat.
      IP2Location
      This module uses the IP2Location database from: http://www.ip2location.com. This database is required to obtain the country from the IP address. IP2Location updates this database at the begin of every month. The settings of ProcessPageViewStat offers the ability to automatically download the database monthly. Please note, that automatically download will not work if your webspace doesn't allow allow_url_fopen.
      Dragscroll
      This module uses DragScroll. A JavaScript available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability in view mode "Day" to drag the records horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      parseUserAgentStringClass
      This module uses the PHP class parseUserAgentStringClass available from: http://www.toms-world.org/blog/parseuseragentstring/. This class is required to filter out the browser type and operating system from the server request.

      TextformatterTypographer
      A ProcessWire wrapper for the awesome PHP Typography class, originally authored by KINGdesk LLC and enhanced by Peter Putzer in wp-Typography. Like Smartypants, it supercharges text fields with enhanced typography and typesetting, such as smart quotations, hyphenation in 59 languages, ellipses, copyright-, trade-, and service-marks, math symbols, and more.
      It's based on the PHP-Typography library found over at wp-Typography, which is more frequently updated and feature rich that its original by KINGdesk LLC.
      The module itself is fully configurable. I haven't done extensive testing, but there is nothing complex about this, and so I only envisage a typographical bug here and there, if any.

      I often had the need for an overview of all used fields and their contents for a specific page/template while developing new websites without switching to the backend, so I made a small module which lists all the needed information in a readable manner (at least for me):
      Debug Page Fields
      https://github.com/robertweiss/ProcessDebugPageFields
      It adds two new properties to all pages:
      $page->debugFieldValues – returns an object with all (sub-)fields, their labels, fieldtypes and values $page->debugFieldTypes – returns an object with all fieldtypes and their corresponding fields // List all values of a pages $page->debugFieldValues // List a specific field $page->debugFieldValues->fieldname // List all used fieldtypes of a page $page->debugFieldTypes I recommend using it in combination with Tracy Debugger, Ray, Xdebug etc. as it returns an object and is only meant for developing/debugging uses. 
      For now, the fieldtype support includes mostly fieldtypes I use in my projects, but can easily be extended by adding a new FieldtypeFIELDNAME method to the module. I use it with five different client installations (all PW 3.0.*), but of course there might be some (or more) field configurations which are not covered correctly yet.
      Supported fieldtypes
      Button Checkbox Color Combo Datetime Email FieldsetPage * File FontIconPicker Functional Image ImageReference MapMarker Multiplier Mystique Options Page PageIDs PageTitle Radio Repeater * RepeaterMatrix * RockAwesome SeoMaestro Table Text Textarea Textareas Toggle URL * The fields with complete subfield-support also list their corresponding subfields.
      Installation
      Download the zip file at Github or clone the repo into your site/modules directory. If you downloaded the zip file, extract it in your sites/modules directory. In your admin, go to Modules > Refresh, then Modules > New, then click on the Install button for this module. As this is my first ›public‹ module, I hope I did not miss any important things to mention here.

      Wire Mail SMTP

      An extension to the (new) WireMail base class that uses SMTP-transport

      This module integrates EmailMessage, SMTP and SASL php-libraries from Manuel Lemos into ProcessWire. I use this continously evolved libraries for about 10 years now and there was never a reason or occasion not to do so. I use it nearly every day in my office for automated composing and sending personalized messages with attachments, requests for Disposition Notifications, etc. Also I have used it for sending personalized Bulkmails many times.

      The WireMailSmtp module extends the new email-related WireMail base class introduced in ProcessWire 2.4.1 (while this writing, the dev-branch only).
       
      Here are Ryans announcement.



      Current Version 0.6.0
      Changelog: https://github.com/horst-n/WireMailSmtp/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md
      get it from the Modules Directory Install and Configure

      Download the module into your site/modules/ directory and install it.

      In the config page you fill in settings for the SMTP server and optionaly the (default) sender, like email address, name and signature.
      You can test the smtp settings directly there. If it says "SUCCESS! SMTP settings appear to work correctly." you are ready to start using it in templates, modules or bootstrap scripts.


      Usage Examples
      The simplest way to use it:
      $numSent = wireMail($to, $from, $subject, $textBody); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody); // or with a default sender emailaddress on config page This will send a plain text message to each recipient.
       
      You may also use the object oriented style:
      $mail = wireMail(); // calling an empty wireMail() returns a wireMail object $mail->to($toEmail, $toName); $mail->from = $yourEmailaddress; // if you don't have set a default sender in config // or if you want to override that $mail->subject($subject); $mail->body($textBody); $numSent = $mail->send(); Or chained, like everywhere in ProcessWire:
      $mail = wireMail(); $numSent = $mail->to($toEmail)->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); Additionaly to the basics there are more options available with WireMailSmtp. The main difference compared to the WireMail BaseClass is the sendSingle option. With it you can set only one To-Recipient but additional CC-Recipients.
      $mail = wireMail(); $mail->sendSingle(true)->to($toEmail, $toName)->cc(array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com')); $numSent = $mail->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); The same as function call with options array:
      $options = array( 'sendSingle' => true, 'cc' => array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com') ); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody, $options); There are methods to your disposal to check if you have the right WireMail-Class and if the SMTP-settings are working:
      $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { // Uups, wrong WireMail-Class: do something to inform the user and quit echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; return; } if(!$mail->testConnection()) { // Connection not working: echo "<p>Couldn't connect to the SMTP server. Please check the {$mail->className} modules config settings!</p>"; return; }  
      A MORE ADVANCED DEBUG METHOD!
      You can add some debug code into a template file and call a page with it:
      $to = array('me@example.com'); $subject = 'Wiremail-SMTP Test ' . date('H:i:s') . ' äöü ÄÖÜ ß'; $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; } else { $mail->from = '--INSERT YOUR SENDER ADDRESS HERE --'; // <--- !!!! $mail->to($to); $mail->subject($subject); $mail->sendSingle(true); $mail->body("Titel\n\ntext text TEXT text text\n"); $mail->bodyHTML("<h1>Titel</h1><p>text text <strong>TEXT</strong> text text</p>"); $dump = $mail->debugSend(1); } So, in short, instead of using $mail->send(), use $mail->debugSend(1) to get output on a frontend testpage.
      The output is PRE formatted and contains the areas: SETTINGS, RESULT, ERRORS and a complete debuglog of the server connection, like this one:
       
      Following are a ...


      List of all options and features


      testConnection () - returns true on success, false on failures


      sendSingle ( true | false ) - default is false

      sendBulk ( true | false ) - default is false, Set this to true if you have lots of recipients (50+)


      to ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      cc ($recipients) - only available with mode sendSingle, one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      bcc ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

       
      from = 'person@example.com' - emailaddress, can be set in module config (called Sender Emailaddress) but it can be overwritten here

      fromName = 'Name Surname' - optional, can be set in module config (called Sender Name) but it can be overwritten here


      priority (3) - 1 = Highest | 2 = High | 3 = Normal | 4 = Low | 5 = Lowest

      dispositionNotification () or notification () - request a Disposition Notification


      subject ($subject) - subject of the message

      body ($textBody) - use this one alone to create and send plainText emailmessages

      bodyHTML ($htmlBody) - use this to create a Multipart Alternative Emailmessage (containing a HTML-Part and a Plaintext-Part as fallback)

      addSignature ( true | false ) - the default-behave is selectable in config screen, this can be overridden here
      (only available if a signature is defined in the config screen)

      attachment ($filename, $alternativeBasename = "") - add attachment file, optionally alternative basename


      send () - send the message(s) and return number of successful sent messages


      debugSend(1) - returns and / or outputs a (pre formatted) dump that contains the areas: SETTINGS, RESULT, ERRORS and a complete debuglog of the server connection. (See above the example code under ADVANCED DEBUG METHOD for further instructions!)


      getResult () - returns a dump (array) with all recipients (to, cc, bcc) and settings you have selected with the message, the message subject and body, and lists of successfull addresses and failed addresses,


      logActivity ($logmessage) - you may log success if you want

      logError ($logmessage) - you may log warnings, too. - Errors are logged automaticaly
       
       
      useSentLog (true | false) - intended for usage with e.g. third party newsletter modules - tells the send() method to make usage of the sentLog-methods - the following three sentLog methods are hookable, e.g. if you don't want log into files you may provide your own storage, or add additional functionality here

      sentLogReset ()  - starts a new LogSession - Best usage would be interactively once when setting up a new Newsletter

      sentLogGet ()  - is called automaticly within the send() method - returns an array containing all previously used emailaddresses

      sentLogAdd ($emailaddress)  - is called automaticly within the send() method

      Food Allergens Module
      A simple List of Food Allergens
      My needs were to provide a simple list of food allergens for our clients with restaurant related activity.
      The idea was to simply output the list (to speed up the data entry) without leaving the food menu editing, eg. opening another page in new tab or window.
      This isn't a perfect solution, but it works fine for my needs and I decided to share the base idea.
      This could also be easily used to show little notes or short "vademecum", not only for the list of food allergens.
      ---
      Main features
      The basis
      All moves from a short editing of the module in this tutorial: How to create custom admin pages by @bernhard
      First of all it creates an empty admin page, with a dedicated permission to let safe-user to see it (this permission has to be created as a new ones, manually or by the module).
      Once the page is created, I have hooked its behaviour into the ready.php, to show the content (basically a list).
      A step further
      With the tips of  @bernhard, @Soma (and many others), see here , the magic happens. 
      The new page will be shown as a panel, so editors will not abandon their data entry to have a quick view to the list.
      A little further
      Why scroll to the top of the page to click a link?
      The next step was to create a sticky button only in the food menu pages.
      Again with a @bernhard tip I moved into the customization of this simple module and the related hook.

      How to use this module
      After installed, it creates the page /admin/page/allergens/ and the module is to be setted up. The first field is a CKEditor with multi-language. This is the place where to write the informations that will be shown into the page. The next field is a simply text-area where to place a bit of JS that will be appended to the markup of the text (omit the 'script' tags). I also putted a checkbox with a silly statement: this to think at least twice on the safety of the written JS. Now comes the first way to display the link to the page
      Field Note with Link. Enable and save it. The module will display a new row with 4 selects (1 standard and 3 ASM):
      View mode (to show the page as Panel or as Modal PopUp); Templates to select: select one or more and save before proceed, so the  asm-select of the pages will be populated showing all the pages of the selected templates. Pages to select: also here select at least one and save before proceed to populate the asm-select for fields only with the ones that belong to the selected pages. Select the fields where to place the note and save again. That's all: now you will find into the notes of the selected fields the link "See the List of Allergens".
      At the same way, the option for the sticky button, but with a plus
      The field select is obviously unnecessary, but you could play with the last row: the inline styles to fix your sticky button where you like. Here you could set the sticky position of the <div> and the absolute ones of the <a>.

      Video Explanation
      In these screencasts you could see a custom JS that show a "copy" button near a "hanna-code" call.
      This because I've set a specific one for each allergen to show up a tooltip in the front end.

      Last but not the least
      Actually it works fine for my needs, even if it's much improvable: I'm working on the permissions creation, the uninstall section, a separate configs and defaults and how to include the hook into the module leaving free the ready.php. According to a simpler uninstall. Also I would make the link text as a dynamic text field, so it will be more flexible.
      I always learn a lot here, so I would share my code for whom it could be interested.
      I removed the hanna code references, but I provide you the html list of the allergens, English and Italian too, so you can paste them into the "source" of the CKEditor field to have a ready to use module.
      Obviously you are free to modify the code as per your needs.
      Please, keep in mind that I'm not a pro coder and I beg your pardon for my verbosity (speaking and coding). 😉
      I hope be helpful or for inspiration.
