Our Support team is ready to present you a new tutorial that shows how to manage Joomla Cookie Directive plugin.

Joomla Cookie Directive is a plugin for displaying a banner with a message about using cookies:


Here you can see the main Joomla Cookie Directive plugin settings. Feel free to check more details at the official plugin’s website:


Width px (0 = full width): The width of the message on the screen, 0 for 100%.

Warning Message: The message to display to users.

Details URL: A link to the details page on this site for more information.

What the plugin does:

  • Informs the users the the site uses cookies.

  • Remembers their answer.

  • Links to your privacy policy page, to which you should add what cookies are used and why.

  • It is also a good idea to display other information links, including those showing how to prevent a browser from accepting cookies. This is the approach that we suggest for anyone who does not want cookies.

What the plugin DOES NOT do!

  • It does not change the functioning of your web site in any way.

  • It does not prevent the web site from setting cookies before the user consents.

  • It does not prevent Google Analytics from gathering data.

  • So you should let users know that cookies will be set by your site, and they continue to use it on that understanding.
