They specifically stated that a link to the privacy and cookie policy must exist at the bottom of EACH page so how do I add the link in the bottom of my SMF????

Thank you

It's all well and good having a link pointing to the privacy and cookie policy page, but do you actually have a page on your site to link to?

Well, they are actually exceeding their authority. If your business and your servers are outside of the EU, they can't enforce the EU cookie law. They really can't.

However, if you want to do it, you would add a link in index.template.php

search for $forum_copyright and you can put your link somewhere near that to have it in the footer.
(please note, templates are a combination of html and php...  you can't just put random html into the code  it has to be properly placed within an echo statement)

Thank you, I will try...I know they are ridiculous but I don't want to attract issues given the fact I already had to move the forum once because Italian authorities told local Telcos to filter my URL just because they though I violated one of their stupid rules!!!  >:(

Yes, I just created it...it's a million words  >:(

And I still need to figure out how to add the pop-up, then notify the Italian authorities because I did not anonimize Google Analytics.  >:(

For WordPress I found a nice plugin but for the forum...is the mod in this topic the best way to go?

Thank you

well in the mean time I installed this mod, however I tested it in different browsers and with Chrome and Firefox I get an issue:

The black bar stays at the bottom of the forum, not just the visible bottom of the screen, but at the bottom of the page so if the user does not scroll down till the bottom of the page, he/she won't see anything.

It's working fine on IE.

Installed and working with no issues on 2.0.15.

A great, simple mod.

Reproducable Error on 2.0.15 and Chrome.
Anyone knows another mod for an cookie alert?

The mod is working with no issues on 2.0.15 and with Firefox, Chrome, IE.
Any problem may occur is probably a compatibility issue with other installed mod on stylesheet / javascript.

I found out that the CSS styles are not used in Chrome, but in Firefox and Edge.

That is incorrect.

Chrome uses css stylehseets just fine.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Yes, in general already.

But in the case of me,
the following CSS properties that the mod in "$themedir/css/index.css" incorporates,
are not inherited from Chrome.

Specifically, these two classes:

Code: [Select]
.cookie_wrap
{
position: fixed;
width: 100%;
bottom: 20px;
text-align: center;
z-index: 9999;
visibility: hidden;
}
....... placeholder for the others here in the code standing properties
............

.cookie_notice
{
display: inline-block;
margin: 0 auto;
padding: 10px;
border-radius: 5px;
font-size: 12px;
}
were transferred to the "$themedir/css/index.css" file as declared in the install mod,
but, only in Chrome, then not evaluated, they were not visible on both elements ..
That was on all Chrome installations I have on several PCs.
Why? I did not find out on the fast.

Edge and Firefox worked normally.

And as soon as I transferred these properties directly to the two div's using style = "",
they were executed correctly by chrome.

This is my scenario how I solved the problem for myself.

Maybe there is another and better solution, but I did not find it on the fast and that's how it works for me now.

I seem to have the same problem, but I do not understand your solution..

The two css classes are not used by Chrome.
So to overwrite this behavior, you can put them each in a singel style="" Element into each div like this example <div style="put css content here">
Then this is more important and chrome will overtune his behavior.

But sorry, i can't look back, because i didn't use this mod anymore.
