Support » Plugin: WP DoNotTrack » block pinterest

    Using options:
    “Disable tracking for all my visitors”
    “Forced”
    “Whitelist”

    The only domain I whitelisted is my own.

    Generally it works (doing before/after-tests) but checking for cookies with different browsers will inform me that a cookie from “pinterest.com” has been set. I have identified the plugin which does it, it is a slider plugin.

    How can I block this, using “blacklist” and adding “pinterest.com” does not work either.

    Same happens with google.com on a page where I am displaying a pdf using google docs viewer.

    Is this a load-order issue?

    I can’t use “SuperClean” as it breaks the site:
    “Fatal error: Unknown: Cannot use output buffering in output buffering display handlers in Unknown on line 0”

    Thx.

  • I think the main issue is the error when using SuperClean … Might be a plugin conflict, could you try disabling/ reenabling other plugins one at a time to see which one is causing this?

    However I don’t want to use “SuperClean” anyway because the description says it blocks iframes and I am using those.

    it blocks iframes, but you can whitelist the iframes that you want to keep obviously 🙂

    O.k. Nice.

    Seems it is mostly working now using “Forced (default)” mode together with “whitelist” – so cookies from”pinterest” are blocked … sometimes. Other times not. I can’t reproduce it to find a pattern.

    The incompatibility with above mentioned plugins is still an issue.

    it probably is a race condition; if the pinterest-resource loads before WP DNT in “forced” mode can boot, then pinterest can set a cookie. if WP DNT wins the race, the resource is not loaded and the cookie not set. this is why “superclean” indeed is the way to go (despite the mentioned conflicts) at least until CSP-based blocking is implemented in WP DNT.
