Used by all the big players, just get your Cookie Audit right.

cookie control for wordpress page
By , for WP 4.1.1

simply 0 out of 5, it does not work and even the simple form to obtain the key does not work, so simply dont bother with this product. My advice try another. Doubt you will even see this post :)

Useless plugin unless you are from UK
By , for WP 4.1.1

The free version is too limited, it only displays for UK or Netherlands visitors. The paid version costs too much. I don't need to pay for something a lot of free plugins do.

Not working
By , for WP 3.9.1

Civic Cookie Control: Sorry, this api key is not valid.Please contact Civic at queries@civicuk.com.We apologise for the inconvenience.

Doesn't Function
By ,

After hours messing with API keys that aren't recognised and domains that are clearly stated the plugin just doesn't work properly. Save yourself a pile of trouble and try something that actually works.

Conflicts with other plugins
By , for WP 3.6.1

It conflicts with a number of plugins, which when disabled cookie control works ok, so if you need any of the plugins, and of course you do or you wouldn't have them, then cookie control is a junker.

I've given up really, it works, sort out the conflicts/use alternative plugins so it works, there is an update and back to square one.

I would have paid for the multi, but that's a no brainer if it keeps stopping working isn't it?

Looks good but doesn't work
By , for WP 3.6.1

I've tried this on my site in 'Explicit Consent' mode. Without the user giving his explicit consent, my website is still allowed to go ahead and create cookies anyway! Is this one major piece of functionality that has been overlooked?

API Not working
By ,

After installing and having to register etc it says it is working but when I test it on my site I get a message (as do my visitors) to say:

"Sorry this API is not valid...."

Hmmm. Well I copy pasted it from the email and double checked it was correct, no spaces at the end etc. Tried again. Still does not work.

Don't waste your time with this one

Data mining scam
By , for WP 3.6.1

Doesn't provide the features described unless you hand over money and your personal details. Borderline scam, though thankfully the GPL means that anyone with the requisite JS skills can edit the plugin to make it work.

It's not free
By , for WP 3.6.1

Free version allow only two countries: UK,NL.
Requires registration.
It's a deception.
