It has been a legal requirement for some years that businesses and organisations display a cookie bar on their website.

Maybe you are already using a relevant 3rd party extension, or maybe you never got around to adding one to your website.

With the recent introduction of the Government Data Protection Regulations (aka GDPR) now is the time to do so.

We switched to using Cookies CK from a different 3rd party extension a few months ago and we like it.

Cookies CK 2.0.4 appears to be a bug fix release but we have not yet seen any release notes.

Are YOU checking which version and release of PHP is being used by your Joomla! website?

Always request that they provide the latest available security release.
