    On http://www.our-families.info/ Nigel use a Cookies Content script, i have tried to use the same script on my side http://www.melfar.dk/kiwitrees but it doesn’t seems to work, I have put the code in the “Custom JavaScript” page. Any ideas what is wrong.

    Ole

    I didn’t use custom js for this myself.

    I’m not sure it can be done that way because it needs to load a js file from the SilkTide web site.

    So I created instead a custom header file (myheader.php, as described in the FAQ pages on this site) and included the details silktide provide in that, within the head tags.

    Further to my last reply…

    I also added this in a custom css file (mystyle.css), for the kiwitrees theme

    /* silktide.com CookieConsent */
    .cc_container .cc_btn, .cc_container .cc_btn:visited {
    	color: #fff !important;
    	background-color: #aaa !important;
    }

    Might this be important enough to become a standard part of kiwitrees?

    To be honest, I really hope not. In my (personal) opinion it is a pointless bit of EU bureaucratic nonsense. I only put it on my site to see if a “pre-packaged” solution such as SilkTide’s would work. It does, so I’m happy we can leave it for those who feel they want it to install using the customisation tools already provided.

    If I have to spend all my available time developing solutions just for every regions differing bureaucracies I’m not sure I’d want to bother any more.

    What confuses most people about this and similar state legislation, in pretty much any country, is that they rarely, if ever, are required or enforced for non-commercial sites. (though if as some do you start adding Google Ads to your family history site, perhaps you are bordering on “commercial”).

    Frankly, in this day, anyone who uses the web and doesn’t know that 99.99% of sites use perfectly harmless* cookies probably shouldn’t be on the web at all. And just clicking a button that tells you a site uses them achieves nothing useful for anyone.

    (*… harmless as in non-3rd party cookies. 3rd party cookies can and should be blocked by your browser)

    The fun part will also be ruined! And if any who wants to have this. I will suggest to use the page menu and add the cookie rules for own country and make a clickable “cookie” link in the custom jv module!

    18 months down the line I tried complying to this piece of nonsense and looked at SilkTide and many other such ‘solutions’. All claim simplicity yet are beyond the technologically-feeble-minded like myself. I’ve tried the mystyle.css and myheader.php approach but the kiwitrees FAQ is cryptic. I just want a simple REALLY SIMPLE way to include this. Not a debate on the stupidity of EU law (good god there is enough debate on that here in the UK at the moment) – just a COPY this file to here solution ….

    Step 1 – decide which solution to use.

    There is no “really simple” solution that I am aware of, but once you get step 1 done, I may be able to help you interpret their instructions.

    To add to my earlier reply……

    Whichever solution you pick you are likely to need:

    1. A JavaScript file the solution will provide. It won’t matter where you put it, but inside your preferred theme file is probably going to be easiest.
    2. A piece of JavaScript code to run that file (or a link to one). It will probably need to go in your themes’ header.php file. Hence the recommendation to create a myheader.php file to avoid over-writing at upgrades.
    3. The above two will work, but may not look good, so you might like to tweak the appearance with some custom CSS (in a mystyles.css file).
    4. It is common, but not essential, to include a link to a web page that explains “cookies”. If your chosen one doesn’t include this there are some to be found through Google you can use.
