Found this very useful tool that can be styled and configured in different ways to give you a cookie control module for FREE with little work.

As I couldn't get the syntax right for vQmod I will post it here instead:

First off go to http://silktide.com/cookieconsent/code and follow the simple setup (choosing which cookies you use, where you want the banner and privacy tag, loads - have a look!

When you have set it how you would like (you can always change it later, to suit your needs) copy the code in Step 4 and then find your catalog/view/theme/*/template/common/header.tpl file and open it in notepad++ (Take a backup at this point if you are concerned...)

Find </head> and insert the code copied in Step 4 on a new line BEFORE it. Save and upload - go back to your site and clear cache and temp files and you should now have a nice cookie control module, Open Source and completely FREE O0

You can also find instructions on styling it yourself and hosting the required .js should you want to change it.

Cheers,

Stokey

I just worked it out - the vQmod for anyone who wants it is at http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route ... n_id=13764

If you need any other category of cookies or change to layout etc just ask if you can't work it out and I will do what I can to help :)

Very nice OSWorx but when you search "eucookie" on Opencart.com all you find is a german language file...which puts people off looking at it (and finding out the other extensions are on your own site) - and as I speak barely 10 words of German I would not have even looked to be honest (yes, lazy English...).

Forgive me if I am wrong, but it appears that your extension is commercial and mine was a free contribution?

I would always expect a commercial module/extension to have greater ease of use or configuration and yours certainly does have that, mine is a "basic" version without charge.

Yours looks interesting and I would like to know how you make a configuration module in the admin panel for something like this...more reading for me! :)

StokeyBlokey,

I was interested in your vQmod version but the link (http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route ... n_id=13764) seems to be broken. Do you still have the details?

Regards,

Ian

Hi Ian,

I got tired of answering requests for support from people who knew even less than I do about code (and I know next to zilch!) so I toook all my mods down.

Private message me your email address and I will send you a few versions of it over for you to play with.

Be aware, it is a case of manual configuration for other modules (Facebook like box etc) to make sure it works properly...a commercial one like OSWorx may be a better bet ;)
