Cookie Info Bar in Oxygen

Sridhar Katakam

This members-only tutorial provides the steps to show a cookie consent information bar without using a plugin or loading a 3rd party JS file in Oxygen.

We shall use the Modal and Conditions features with a few lines of custom JS.

When a user visits any page of the site for the first time, the modal is going to slide in from the bottom after a minute.

When the user dismisses it by pressing the "Got it!" button, a cookie will be created in the user's browser that expires after 30 days.

During this time any time this user revisits any page of the site, the cookie we created will be checked against the list of cookies and only if it is NOT present will the modal appear.

Here's the idea behind the implementation:

if button pressed {
create cookie

if cookie NOT present in the cookies list {
show the modal

Step 1

Edit the Main Catch All Oxygen Template.

a) Add a Modal component.


Show when: After specified time
Open Modal After: 1 second
After Modal Is Shown: Show again on every page load

Select "More info" text and click <SPAN> button in the top toolbar and set a URL to it that links to your Privacy Policy page or to http://wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_cookie.

For the Text component, set Text Align to Center under Typography.

For the Button, set top margin to 20px and left margin to 0.

b) Bring up the Structure Panel, select Body element and add a Code Block so it is below all other components.
