CookieCuttr

A tailorable jQuery plugin to deal with the EU Cookie Law.

We're not accepting any more pull requests, someone else is working on a new version at the moment, when its ready, we'll link it here.

Dependencies

Useage

Add jquery.cookiecuttr.js, after jQuery and jQuery.cookie, and cookiecuttr.css to the head of your HTML document. Then call CookieCuttr on document ready.

$(document).ready(function () {
  $.cookieCuttr();
});

For any JavaScript you want to disable, you need to wrap the following if statement around it.

if (jQuery.cookie('cc_cookie_accept') == "cc_cookie_accept") {
  // insert the code you do not want to run UNTIL cookies are accepted here
}

Example with Google Analytics

if (jQuery.cookie('cc_cookie_accept') == "cc_cookie_accept") {
  var _gaq = _gaq || [];
  _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-XXXXXXXX-X']);
  _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);

  (function() {
    var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;
    ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
    var s = document. getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
  })();
}

Alternatively, you can do the following until cookies are declined.

if (jQuery.cookie('cc_cookie_decline') == "cc_cookie_decline") {
  // do nothing
} else {
  var _gaq = _gaq || [];
  _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-XXXXXXXX-X']);
  _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);

  (function() {
    var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;
    ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
    var s = document. getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
  })();
}

You can also do the following.

if( $.cookieAccepted() ) {
  // insert the code you do not want to run UNTIL cookies are accepted here
}
