Hi Richey, it works but...
- it stops google maps cookies (except NID)
- it doesn't stop youtube cookies in normal modality (not no-cookie)
- youtube-nocookie (stops except NID, but obviously if you play all cookies are set)
(...please please please help me understand what't that damned CONSENT cookie set by google that lasts 20 years!!!)
- re-captcha (NID if you click)
- when I navigate frontend and backend in 2 tabs at the same time, if I navigate the site in frontend it kicks me off the backend (if I do not accept cookies in the frontend). This doesn't happen if I accept cookies in the frontend. (is it normal or not?)
Ok so I should deny YT videos showing, maps showing, recaptcha showing before acceptance. So it doesn't really block 3rd party cookies, but it's a question of how it is used together with permissions (i.e.: acceptedcoockies groups), right?
It blocks them just fine, if configured to do so. If you were to set your YT, and recaptcha plugins to the cookies access level - my plugin would block them.
The issue is the "Same Origin" policy that is enforced in ALL browsers. site-a.com cannot manipulate or access cookies from site-b.com - I can, however, affect the loading of the plugins, components, and modules that load site-b.com cookies. Preventing those extensions from running effectively prevents the cookies from appearing in association with site-a.com
By loading extensions with bring cookies from other domains, the "Same Origin" policy prevents me from doing anything about it. My extension is the only one that even attempts to address 3rd party cookies - nobody else even tries. I test competing extensions often.
I'm not trying to be confrontational - I really want it to work everywhere, but there are some restrictions that I can't circumvent, like the Same Origin policy. It's these restrictions that led me to the solutions I designed. I found a way to reach the finish line, but it is not a plug-and-play solution. Configurations are rigid and uncompromising.
This is why I block 3rd party cookies using access levels.
Hi Richey, I see that you are going on with the update of your plugin and I really love your work. Now that I've set the new versions, I compiled the cookie definitions list and set to "cookies acepted" and "cookies rejected" access levels a map module.
My question is:
first access: I see the banner and the list of cookies that I've set as required or not. Required are already checked, while NOT REQUIRED are unchecked. But also if they remain unckecked, clicking on accept cookies, modules with those unaccepted cookies (set as "cookies rejected level) are shown as well.
What can I do? Am I doing something wrong?
