If you like jquery.cookieBar and use it commercially please consider giving a donation. Thankyou.

Installation

Include script after the jQuery library

<script src="/path/jquery.cookieBar.js"></script>

If you want the default styles also include the css, if not feel free to style it as you see wish!

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="cookieBar.css">

Usage

Create a cookiebar with no markup whatsoever! it's like magic ...

<script type="text/javascript">
	$(document).ready(function() {
	  $.cookieBar();
	});
</script>

Or, create your cookiebar markup from a simple container, example:

<script type="text/javascript">
	$(document).ready(function() {
	  $('.cookie-message').cookieBar();
	});
</script>

<div class="cookie-message">
	The government says i have to tell you i use cookies, so here it is
</div>

Or, create your cookiebar markup from a simple container with an advanced button, example:

<script type="text/javascript">
	$(document).ready(function() {
	  $('.cookie-message').cookieBar({ closeButton : '.my-close-button' });
	});
</script>

<div class="cookie-message">
	The government says i have to tell you i use cookies, so here it is <a class="my-close-button" href>cheers!</a>
</div>

Or, create your cookiebar markup from a simple container with a super advanced button that does something custom on close instead of just hiding, example:

<script type="text/javascript">
	$(document).ready(function() {
	  $('.cookie-message').cookieBar({ closeButton : '.my-close-button', hideOnClose: false });
	  $('.cookie-message').on('cookieBar-close', function() { $(this).slideUp(); });
	});
</script>

<div class="cookie-message">
	The government says i have to tell you i use cookies, so here it is <a class="my-close-button" href>cheers!</a>
</div>
