Basically, people should accept using cookies, or just go elsewhere.

What is a problem is EU cookies law which makes EU based websites uncompetitive to websites located elsewhere. The problem isn't in this mod. Average user isn't interested in cookies, but content on website. No user is safer in knowing that cookies exist and that average website (almost all there are, except the most simple ones) needs to use them.

Marked as installed !

Thank you very much for this mod. It looks great. I just installed and it does warn the users about cookie but when i go to admin cookie control > Cookie Management. I get Internal Server Error. Any idea how to fix this?

Thank you very much for this great modification!

Finally more than just another JavaScript Pop-up. However, I'm a little confused how the addon finds out which cookies are used on my site. I've many cookies from Google Analytics and AddThis and I'm sure I've never used Google Analytics on my site. And I've also disabled social networks like facebook etc. on my site. I don't know why it says that my site uses "AddThis" cookies. When I check my Browser and view the cookies, only the standard vBulletin cookies are used. So I'Ve also checked the plugin on a clean vB 4.2.5 install and compared them to my life site. The results are the same: Even in a clean install the Google Cookies are listed there. Quite confusing for my users.

Again, I'm pretty sure I've never added anything in relation to Google Analytics on my site. Or does the youtube BB-Code result in these cookies? I'd be really glad to hear from you on this matter. Thanks!
