Implied Cookie Consent

Displays an unobtrusive cookie information bar when a user first visits the site.

This plugin displays an unobtrusive information bar at the top of the page informing the user about the site's use of cookies. This approach follows an implied consent model. It doesn't explicitly ask the user for consent before placing cookies, it merely infoms them about the use of cookies. When the user navigates to a second page or clicks on the dismiss button, the bar is hidden. This approach is similar to that used on many government websites including gov.uk.

The plugin has settings in the admin which allows the colour and content of the information bar to be customised.

An example cookie information page will be created on installation of the plugin. It is up to you to correctly populate the text on that page.

Why another cookie plugin?

There are many WordPress cookie plugins available but none of them seemed to do what I wanted. They typically tend to provide a very intrusive experience for the user (e.g. via modal popups), or are too complex to configure.

Technical Details

This plugin uses jQuery (JavaScript) to show and hide the information bar. A cookie is stored via the jQuery Cookie Plugin (included with this plugin) to track that the message has been displayed and does not need to be shown on each subsequent page view.
