Installation and Configuration

After you activated this plugin you can add the cookie consent popup widget to your pages. If you want to show the popup on all pages, just add the popup to the footer section of your site and configure the widget there. Once configured and styled you’ll see the popup appear on each page. 

Once the user clicks on the accept button, a (functional) cookie will be set containing the cookie settings the use agreed upon. If this cookie is set the popup won’t be shown anymore. 

Adding a popup button

This widget also support the ability the change the cookie settings afterwards. Just a button with the id cookieconsentdisplaybutton to your page. Once clicked the popup will appear and the user can adjust the settings.

Integration with Google Tag Manager

For the integration with Google Tag Manager of other scripts the cookies settings are scripted to the window.datalayer array. See below. The values inside this datalayer are then picked up by the GTM-scripts.

					<script type='text/javascript' id='missingwidgets-js-before'>
<!-- Missing Widget code for GTM -->    
            window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer ? window.dataLayer : [];
            let layer = {};layer["functionalCookies"] = 0;layer["analyticalCookies"] = 0;layer["advertisementCookies"] = 0;window.dataLayer.push(layer);//]]><!-- Missing Widget code for GTM -->

Once you’ve added the Google Tag Manager code inside your website header, you can use these datalayer input inside Google Tag Manager to load certain scripts  based on the user preferences. You can check if it works by using the Google Tag Manager Preview functionality inside Google Tag Manager.If you’ll see the settings appear inside the preview you can proceed to set the tag, triggers and variables inside GTM.

NOTE: Make sure you have disabled all adblockers inside your browser before you go to test your website.

1. Adding Data Layer Variable

To use the settings inside GTM, first you’ll need to add 3 Data Layer Variables; for functionalCookies, analyticalCookies and advertisementCookies. Be sure to set your default value to either 0 (not set) or 1 (set).

2. Adding the Triggers

For each created Data Layer Variable you can create a GTM trigger. If the value of this Data Layer Variable equals to 1 then the trigger will be fired by GTM.

3. Adding the tags

Now that you’ve created the trigger you can attached them to the various scripts you’ve defined inside GTM. In this case the Google Analytics Script can only be fired if the conditions of the analytics cookies trigger are met. If they are not met the script won’t be loaded inside you website by Google Tag Manager.

4. Test to see it's working

Once you’ve configured the tags inside GTM, test it again and if the tag is fired you’ve succesfully integrated the cookie consent popup with GTM.
