    Hi guys,

    Recently Europe has introduced a law which requires any website accessed by a European citizen to obtain explicit consent from each visitor to use cookies on that site. I use WordPress because I don't understand stuff like cookies and I don't know which of my plugins creates cookies or not. What is the easiest way to find out and how do I know how long the cookies last and so on ?

    In the UK, this law has now been re-interpreted to include "implict consent": http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2012/may/26/cookies-law-changed-implied-consent
