Thanks for making this mod.

Just to ask, does this mod have link that we can use so users can later change cookies' state (allowed/disallowed)?

Not at this time, the user would need to clear the cookies from that particular site in order to receive the choice again.

I'll test your mod and make feature requests at your site when I do found appropriate.

Just to mention, in EU cookie law I saw mentioning that link which resets cookie rules for users who choose to do so at later time. I know that users can operate cookies from within their browser (site, or all browser's cookies), but for some reason this EU cookies law asks us to do basically unnecessary things.

It would be great if your mod would have link that would bring up initial screen, or even better, reset cookies on site. It would mean more compatibility with EU cookies law.

This is explained here: http://ec.europa.eu/ipg/basics/legal...s/index_en.htm In example they offer here, item 3 is a link visibile in footer when users already accepted cookies, but they can choose to stop using them.

Hotfix: In the Lite version, the "Toggle Details" and "OK" buttons would not work as intended.

You forgot to put in the description that php 5.3 is required. Had to put in a ticket to have the techs upgrade it to 5.3 earlier today.

Hi could you please change this to where there is a collapsable box to open & close the display message instead of it covering half the screen when someone visits? Thanks.

There is already a collapsible box, not only can they click "okay" to dismiss the message permanently or they can also click to expand for more details.

I'm thinking if there could be a simple text link to open that js popup instead of being in your face. Does that make more sense? Because it is pretty intrusive for mobile browsing atm the way it is.

The law requires it to be obvious, so implementing your suggestion would unfortunately defeat the purpose of the mod.

What about if the floating box was smaller like this example.

It is approx. that size, assuming you are running a decently high resolution

Yeah on my phone and this example. This portrayal is pretty accurate.
https://www.google.com/webmasters/to...um%2Fforum.php

I have a alcatel c1 - OS Android 4
LG G2 - OS Android 5
and a
Rca 7 inch Tablet - OS Android 4
Plus my Vizio 26 inch TV (VA26LHDTV10T) (incapable of 1080P I believe) which I have my tower hooked onto. (displays it a bit larger than the comparison... )
All run android os

All of which have more than half the screen covered by the notice.
