ATA 3.7.3...WP 3.3.1

Those nice people in the European Union are requiring by the end of May 2012 that sites have to show information to site visitors about any cookies and get their agreement before they can continue into the site.

I am using the excellent plugin from Civic Pride http://civicuk.com/cookie-law/index on a site www.floodproblems.co.uk

However has any thought been given to ATA theme having a built in procedure.

I understand from an earlier posting of mine that ATA does not use cookies but I think most of us finish up with at least one or more via plugins.

This would be a WordPress issue not a theme issue - you might want to post this idea over at wordpress.org as a WordPress core function.

JD; you are undoubtedly correct but I still see this theme being a trailblazer and I believe my suggestion has merit but I will not pursue it if there is no developer/user support.

Yup,

I am looking into this as well as I am in the UK and our stupid government just laps up anything Europe dictates, anyway I have more than a few sites running under ATA and I keep coming across this cookie __atuvc can you confirm it's not from ATA please and also are you familiar with it at all.

Many thanks

Dave

that cookie seems to come from glass.co.uk - a simple google search using 'cookie __atuvc' lead me to this information
