Today we have released version 3.0 of our Cookie Opt-In. This update adds a lot of new features, improves existing functions and solves many bugs. :)
Many thanks to everyone who reports bugs and suggestions for improvement in our Gitlab Issue Tracker !
- A new alternative template
- Installation of a banner
- Full control over all templates
- Full deployment capability without a database
- Improvement of the search engine friendliness
- Optimization of the general performance
- General stabilization of the existing functions
The first major feature in this release is a new alternative template for opt-in. This is wider and visually clearer than the standard template. If you want to apply it, you only have to use a select box in the TYPO3 backend, which is shown in the pictures below. Existing texts and colors are combined with new ones, which are dynamically faded in and out.
You can also see here that from now on all templates can be overwritten. As template language we have chosen Mustache for several reasons. The possible variables are currently only visible in the other templates, which can also be customized.
Another new feature is the banner. As with the new template, this can be completely configured and edited in the backend. There are a lot of options, like the positioning of the banner, the template itself as well as the texts and colors.
From now on it is possible to include the generated files directly on a page without the need for the extension. To do so, you have to include the generated files directly in the HTML source code in the fileadmin. Of course, it still happens completely automatically as before, if the extension is installed.
In addition, the target folder for generated files can now also be configured, if you don't want to have them in the fileadmin. This new setting can be found in the options of the extension. You can find it within the settings backend module from TYPO3 9.x on (Admin Tools → Settings → Extension Configuration → sg_cookie_optin).
