    Maybe you could try this solution from a similar question answered on stackoverflow:

    http://stackoverflow.com/a/15383222/4397269

    In summary, the suggestion is to use jsconnect SSO method with HTTPS

  • Hi,

    Thank for getting back to me so quickly.
    However I think you did not understand my problem fully.
    I don't need some SSO method with HTTPS or something.
    I trying to find it (and I bet there must be a simple soulution) to just displaying an info for people who has visiting my site.

    I mean for example info bar on main page displaying that I'm using cookies nothing more

    This is according to EU Law (every website should have this kind of information)

    Hope thsi make some more clear

    Thanks a lot
    Bory

    You could use the messages option in the Dashboard

    Dashboard - Appearance - Messages

    Type the message you want, choose where you want it displayed, and make it dismissible.

    Registered users can dismiss it, but guests will always see it.

    Hey Bory,

    Ok understood. I think a simple splash page or regular page with Privacy Policy or Disclaimer will do.

    http://vanillaforums.org/addon/custompages-plugin

    or you can use the built-in message widget as another option: Dashboard -> Appearance -> Messages

    That what I was thinking about, the problem is I want it reserve this kind of messages for more important announcements.

    Anyhow to make a message on the bottom of the page which then disapperas itself within a few second?

    Cheers

    @123456ab There's this option to Allow Users to dismiss the message under messages. If you have done some front-end coding, then it would be easy to put some sort of timed "splash page" then place a cookie just to show it once.

    As Rasteron says. make it dismissible, and maybe put it in the side panel.

    It stays visible to non-members, but members don't have to keep seeing it, so you've fulfilled your duty.

    For announcements, why not just make a thread announced, which is kind of what that is for?

    You could try the PrivacyNotice plugin, it adds a link to the menu and a pop up with the notice. You could modify it with some script to show once per session by detecting the vanilla cookie. That way if the person has not deleted their cookies the message does not show over and over.

    You can also use an overlay popup with the message and they have to click to see the page again

    I made this quick plugin let me know how it works for you. Likely will need some tweaking. If it is something other might find useful I will upload it.

  • Hi vrijvlinder,

    This is an awesome popup plugin you were made.
    I'm really appreciate it.
    However I'm looking something similat to this site http://www.digitalspy.co.uk you can see an info bar on the bottom of the site.

    Regards
    Bory

    Do you mean a FootBox so you can add links to info etc ?

    Try The FootBox plugin. You can add simple html and links to your cookie info page.

    By the way the CookiePop plugin can be designed so the box appears anywhere you want.

    Sorry for asking... I'm using 2.5.1 and I didn't have an option "Dashboard - Appearance - Messages". Am I too dumb or just blind ?
    Appreciate any help with that !

    For 2.5 you need to go to the Dashboard, then click on Moderation and then you will find a menu entry Messages. The slug would be "/dashboard/message"
