  • Head to the General tab
  • Add your <script> tags for other tracking here in the appropriate boxes.
  • Note that Analytics and Advertising can be toggled.
  • These will then get put on page according to the consent level the user agreed to.
  • Necessary cookies always appear on page
  • WARNING : These fields place what you put in them onto the page. Please check for errors and make sure that the code you put in here is safe.

Advanced Use

To build a custom cookie popup:

  • Open up your master Template.antlers.html or equivalent
  • Add our {{ AltCookies:Scripts }} tag to your popup view.
  • You'll need an "Accept" and "Accept Necessary" button.
  • The "Accept" button needs to have {{ AltCookies:accept }} in it's onclick
  • The "Accept Necessary" button needs to have {{ AltCookies:decline }} in it's onclick
  • You will then need at least 2 checkboxes to configure analytics and advertising cookies.
  • The Analytics checkbox requires an id of alt-cookies-analytics for the Javascript to hook into
  • The Analytics checkbox requires an id of alt-cookies-advertising for the Javascript to hook into
  • If you just want to allow Necessary and All cookies as your options, then you could hide these checkboxes and give them the checked property. They just need to exist.
