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

PHP 7.1.18 is also now available but appears not to be a security fix.

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

We strongly recommend that you periodically check which release is being provided by your hosting provider for the PHP version used by your website.

Always request that they provide the latest available security release.

Do not settle for anything earlier than PHP 7.0 or 7.1 if you are using the latest available release of Joomla! CMS (recommended). 

We tell you how to check which version & release of PHP is being used by your Joomla! website in our JOOMLERS.UK User Guide.
