Support » Plugin: Smart Cookie Kit » How to tag specific code to block

  • Hello,
    how are you?
    Congratulations for your plugin, it is very well done!
    I’ve read that “It permits you to tag code to block” but I don’t know how I should do.
    Can you help me please?
    Thank you very much
    Kind regards,
    Enfi

    Hello @enfi,
    to be honest, that functionality is an old one and refers to old versions of the plugin.
    In this moment there is not the possibility to block custom html sections.

    Is there something in particular that you would block?

    Nicola.

    Hi Nicola,
    thanks for your reply.
    I would like to block specific script and html codes that add cookies, just to be sure that every cookies are blocked.
    For example Eu Cookie Law plugin let you use a shortcode for wrapping code you don’t want to load eg. [cookie]<script>[/cookie] this prevents that scripts are loaded.
    Unfortunately Eu Cookie Law plugin has problem with cache so I would like to start using Smart Cookie Kit.

    How can I block specific script and html?
    Thank you very much for you patience!
    Kind regards,

    Hi Nicola,
    sorry I didn’t hear from you…could you please reply to my last message.
    Thank you very much.

    Hi Nicola, EnFi,
    Let me join to this discussion, because I am looking for the same thing.
    I’ve tested so many plugins and found this one the best so far. However this feature seems missing to me too.
    I’m using a theme that depends on Redux framework. Redux uses a cookie (“redux_blast”) even if I keep blocking cookies with your plugin.
    I would be happy if I could put a condition into Redux’s code.
    EU Cookie Law plugin – anyway it is weaker than yours – documents clearly this feature:
    “You can lock cookies using [cookie] and [/cookie] shortcodes in every post, page and widget. You can use php functions too:
    if ( !function_exists(β€˜cookie_accepted’) || cookie_accepted() ) {
    // Your code
    }”
    Is there any working way to put a condition into a php code in another plugin?

    Thanks,
    Laszlo

    Hi @laszlokatona,
    thanks for adding your comment.
    Yes, you’re right! I hope that @shark986 will answer us with a good solution.
    Let’see!

    @enfi I am really sorry… I though I replyed.

    I am making some tests to implement this feature. I need some time to find the right way to manage the shortcode, as it could contain different types of content to block.

    @laszlokatona I never used Redux (but I will test it πŸ™‚ ), I am not sure that the cookie you mentioned has to be blocked. Maybe you could contact its support to better understand why that cookie is used.
    However, I will add the function you suggest, but keep in mind that on some circumstances a similar function will not work when cache systems are enabled: this not means that the function will return a “wrong answer”, but that the piece of code that use the function could be bypassed by the cache system (that is why some plugins for cookies do not work)!

    Hello @shark986,
    thanks for you reply. You’re very kind!
    It would be perfect if you’ll include the same shortcode [cookie][/cookie] for wrapping the code you don’t want to run until the user accept the policy.
    This will help to move from Eu Cookie Law plugin to your plugin painless.

    I didn’t understand if you have written that using shortcode to block code could not work with caching system. Please let me, know as if is the case I have to think about other possible solutions.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon.
    Kind regards,

    Thank you so much for your help, Nicola.
    You are right, putting conditions into php code of pages can cause problems if we cache the them… that’s always tricky…
    By the way, we are currently testing your plugin on our cached site. We are using varnish servers as well. I have no time to look into your code deeply, but as I see you have put some W3 Total cache compatibility in it.
    So I hope we won’t have any issues. πŸ™‚
    If you have any know issue on this topic please let us know.

    ps. I’ve found some partial answer for Redux cookie: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/redux_blast-cookie/

    @enfi the problem with cache systems is related to the PHP function that “tells” if cookie were accepted. It is not related to the shortcode.
    I could not promise that I will use “cookie” as shortcode, as, in my opinion, it is not really clear (the name does not explain what the shortcode really do).

    @laszlokatona in this moment there aren’t known issues with W3TC.
    I’ve worked on compatibility with W3TC for features related to the frontend of the site (aggregating/minifying/deferring of the scripts). A similar function will probably be bypassed from the cache (unless you use the Fragment Cache feature of W3TC), so in this moment I think that the only way to get things working is to avoid the caching of pages in which you will use the function. Another solution (that personally I would prefer) is to create a small framework that, using AJAX, customizes the cached page with user-related data.

    Hello @shark986,
    thanks for your reply.
    Ok, no problem for the name of the shortcode. Of course you can use what you think is better.
    When do you think this feature will be ready to give it a try?
    Thank you very much for your patience!
    Kind regards,

    Hi @shark986,
    how are you?
    I’ve tried the Iubenda Plugin but I’ve still have problem with the cache, so I hope to start testing yours with the ability to block cookies by tag, shortcode or whatever. πŸ™‚

    From your tests, your plugin doesn’t have any problem with cache at all?
    Thank you very much and have a nice day!
    Kind regards,

    Hello @enfi,
    excuse me if I take some time to answer.
    These are days full of work.

    Maybe I could work on the shortcode feature next week, but I can not make any predictions about it.
    I can assure you that I’m doing the best I can do πŸ™‚

    The theory is that the plugin should work with each kind of cache system due to the logic I have implemented: the plugin blocks services in the server-side, so the cache systems should create their cache with the services blocked.
    The unlock phase happens only in the browser, regardless of the page has been output from a cache or not.

    Problems could appear when external plugin manages optimization like asyncing/deferring javascripts, but consider that, at the time of writing, thanks to my tests and to bug reports of some users, Smart Cookie Kit is compatibile with such kind of optimization of W3 Total Cache, WP Fastest Cache (Free and Premium), Autoptimize, WP Rocket and Litespeed Cache.
    You can imagine that the number of configuration combinations is very high, so it is impossible to prevent all possible combinations. I will try to solve incompatibility when they will raise up.

    Hello Nicola @shark986,
    thank you very much for your reply!
    You’re very kind and professional! πŸ™‚
    No worries, take your time. Of course I hope that the plugin will work in the way you have described. It will be something different from other plugins around, and I wish you a lot of success with it!
    You have mentioned many caching plugins. I’m in the process of leaving Wp Rocket as it doesn’t work with webp images and I’m trying to use something simple and fast to use like Cache Enabler that works with webp. So I hope your Smart cookie Kit will work with this plugin too.
    Just in case you’ll need help with testing beta or something please let me know.
    Thank you very much and have a great evening!
    Kind regards,

    Hello @shark986,
    how are you?
    Just wondering if this feature has been implemented yet. πŸ™‚
    Thank you very much.
