    Having looked around at several plugins based around adding cookie notifications to your site, I’ve found that specifically the free version of this plugin is, well, just not very useful.

    The free version does not support cached sites (or at the very least, just not very well). It requires a page reload on acceptence that flushes the cache by adding ”
    /?cli_action=” to the end of your URL, which WILL mess with your page veiw records in your analytics. If you disable this, the plugin will not function on cached sites.

    Secondly, under EU rules, analytics cookies must be disabled prior to recieving explicit consent, should you disable them by default, and then should a visitor click “Accept”, this does not mean they have accepted the analytics cookies, simply that they have accepted the current settings (meaning that your analytics scripts will not run).

    Hi @edwardsiv,

    With this plugin, you can set up a cookie notice in your site and you can add the scripts via the plugin non-necessary script section to set cookies based on user consent only.

    In the latest version(v.1.8.8) we have introduced a new filter to disable the cache flushing system as we are moving to a fully cache compatible version by next release.

    As for the second comment, you can set the Non-necessary category state as disabled by default, and once done, the google analytics script added in the script input settings of the plugin will run only if user opens the settings pop up and toggle the category “Enabled” and then click accept.
