PresideCMS Extension: Cookie Consent

v1.3.6 Public

Preside Cookie Consent Extension

Extension to add functionality for displaying a cookie consent notification to site visitors.

Installation

Install the extension to your application via either of the methods detailed below (Git submodule / CommandBox + ForgeBox)

Git Submodule method

From the root of your application, type the following command:

git submodule add https://github.com/nodoherty/preside-ext-cookie-consent.git application/extensions/preside-ext-cookie-consent

CommandBox (box.json) method

From the root of your application type the following command:

box install preside-ext-cookie-consent

From the Preside CMS developer console (using the back tick ` key) reload the application:

reload all

Enabling the extension

Once the files are installed, enable the extension by opening up the Preside CMS developer console and entering:

extension enable preside-ext-cookie-consent
reload all

Usage

Layouts

Add the following line below the closing tag in your layout templates.

        ...
        #renderViewlet( event="CookieConsent._cookieConsent" )#
    </body>
</html>

Custom CSS

To make it easier to customise the look and feel you can find the CSS files under /assets/specific/cookie-consent/

The main changes should only be to the background colours, button colours and text colours etc. I'll leave that to you.

LESS CSS

If you are a fan of CSS pre-processors then you can take advantage of the LESS CSS files and inherent grunt task file for processing any changes. The only changes required are to the global less files colours.less and fonts.less. Any changes to these files will result in the values being updates in the output CSS files.

From within the assets folder you can now install the node packages required to easily update the styles for all default stylesheets.

To do so you simply need to (from the terminal):

  • Navigate to the assets/ folder
  • Run npm install which will download any dependencies defined in the package.json file

Grunt tasks

To apply the changes you have made to the .less files you need to execute the task runner. To do so simply:

  • The run the command grunt from within the assets/ folder which will execute the default task

This will recompile any changes to the LESS variables / files and output the .css and .min.css version of each stylesheet required for the themes.

Note: By default the extension uses the minified versions of the CSS files.
