Cookie Monster for Joomla is a System Plugin that makes implementing these Notifications a breeze and offers a less intrusive solution for you for some Cool features that stand out from other such extensions..
You can read more about the new EU Cookie Law here and here .The Plugin is in the form of a Joomla System plugin, if you have any Question or Queries, please ask in the Support Centre . Install and use on unlimited Joomla Installations.
Lets take a look at what the Cookie Monster for Joomla offers …
Display a Horizontal toolbar at the Top of the Site OR as an overlay on the Page , with a message about the Cookies Use and Policy and an Accept or decline Button.
You can choose to use the plugin to notify Visitor that you are using Google Analytics Tracking and request them to Accept or Decline.
You can additionally use the plugin to load Google Analytics on your site, just add your Tracking ID in the Plugins parameters. .
Block Site Elements
You can block multiple divs in this way until the Visitor accepts or declines cookies.
You can choose to load the Cookie Notification script in the Sites head or before the closing body tags, before the tag is recommended.
To function correctly, the Plugin makes use of jQuery 1.7.2 (tested with jQuery 1.4.2+ ) and this is loaded first on a webpage as mandatory.
More functionality will be added , with a view to enhance with features and optimise the plugins scripts .
