Usage

Choc Chip Cookie EU Cookie Plugin Widget

This plugin comes with an opt-in widget for your sidebar. Anything added to the Choc Chip EU Cookie Plugin widget is opt in. So if you insert your Adsense code here it will only show if the visitor has accepted cookies. Cool uh?! 

Options

Button Bar Text
Edit the warning text as shown on the button bar. Try something like 'Hey you, you are browsing my website so you are having cookies'. OK maybe not qute that but something similar.

Cookie Information Page
Create a page that contains your cookie information such as what cookies are and what you use them for. Select your cookie information page from the list and this will link to the 'More info' button on the button bar.

Opt in header code
Third party applications such as Google Analytics leave a cookie in order to be able to track your visitors. The EU Cookie Directive wants you to warn people of this and even have them 'opt in' so you shouldnt track them unless they agree to it. Any text/code that you enter in the 'opt in header code' field will only be activated once the 'allow' button has been clicked. Any text/code in this field will be placed just above the  </head>  tag.

Comment Form Warning
Wordpress leaves a cookie when a comment is left (to save the form information so it doesnt have to be filled in next time) so give your visitors a warning and let them whats going down. Try something like 'By leaving a comment you are agreeing to have a new friend in the same shape as a cookie popped onto your hard drive'.
