Support » Plugin: Slash Admin » EU cookie law message – ‘read more’ page does not show anymore

    Hi Giorgos,

    The EU cookie law option used to show a link to a ‘read more’ page.

    Sadly, this link doesn’t show anymore even though it is properly configured. Only the “Accept” button is shown.

    This changes when I check the option ‘Retrieve the box message form from your “Read more” page’s excerpt ….’

    In this case, the link is showing. But then of course the custom message text isn’t showing any more.

    Is there any chance you can fix this quickly?

    Thanks a lot and all the best
    Christian

  • Hi Christian,

    It’s a bug, indeed. You can try this version: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/38634/Transfers/slash-admin.zip

    Basically, the only changes compared to the live version reside at the inc/cookie-law.php so if you feel more comfortable with that, you can just replace the specific file.

    I did a quick test on one site and it seems to work fine. I will have to test it with WPML too, though, later today or tomorrow, and then I will release it as a proper update.

    PS: Installing the version that I am sending you above, won’t affect future updates.

    Please let me know if it worked for you.

    Thanks!

    Yay, found one! 😉

    The fix works fine (I just replaced the single PHP file to keep all my other settings).

    Thanks for the quick reaction, Giorgos!

    There’s one more thing that bugs me, although it’s not a bug: I’d love to be able to replace the ‘if the spinner keeps loading forever…’ text with custom wording, just like it’s possible with the ‘read more’ text.

    Maybe you can include this in a future update?

    Thanks a lot and all the best
    Christian

    Sure, I can include that in the upcoming fix (didn’t find the time to release it yet).

    Thank you for your feedback!

    Great, thank you!

    One more cosmetical issue that I just noticed:

    If I use the ‘bottom right’ position, it would in my opinion look better to have a line break before the ‘read more’ section. Otherwise, it leaves a bit of a crowded/stuffed impression.

    Also, it would be nice to find the names of the CSS elements for custom formatting somewhere in the documentation. I’ve found them anyway using inspector, but it would be a nice service.

    The best option would of course be to be able to specify the following right inside of the plugin:

    – background and shadow colors
    – text color, font, and size of main section
    – text color, font, and size of ‘read more’ section
    – button color, font, and text size
    – button hover color

    I assume these would be the most requested elements for tweaking.

    Thanks again for your great work, I really appreciate finding so many useful features in one plugin. Hence the ‘swiss army knife’ reference.

    All the best from Germany
    Christian

    Dear Giorgos,

    just checking back: You meant to include this with one of your next updates, but as far as I see it’s not implemented, yet.

    I’d love to be able to replace the ‘if the spinner keeps loading forever…’ text with custom wording, just like it’s possible with the ‘read more’ text.

    I can do so for the “Loading …” text, but not the spinner message.

    It would be great to be able to customize that without editing code.

    Thanks a lot and all the best
    Chris

    After a long time, I finally found some time to make some improvements to the plugin. The issue should be fixed with the latest version (3.3).
