Hello,

First of all I'd like to congratulate you on this great plugin. Exactly the solution that I was looking for.

Currently I am preparing my website for GDPR which comes in 2018. And since I want to be compliant, I'd like to know if there is a way to disable cookies for those users that have not accepted the privacy policy or simply would like to remove their consent.

I have managed to modify the comment form so that it seems to comply with GDPR (a checkbox for consent which is mandatory and an option for 100% anonymous comments). But the cookies seem to be present.

I understand that most of them are currently set to expire when the session ends. But is there an option to disable them completely in case the privacy policy is not accepted or the consent is removed.

For this purpose I am using a cookie notice plugin which sets a cookie with value "true" when the policy is accepted.

Also - is there a way to remove all comments if a user requests this (according to the rights provided by GDPR) or the user should contact me so that I can manually remove the comments?

Thank you!

Thank you  d_angeloff,

wpDiscuz uses WordPress Cookie functions. If the option turn off WordPress cookies wpDiscuz cookies will also be disabled.

Any suggestion on how to achieve this? Let's say I want to unset the PHPSESSID and wpdiscuz_last_visit cookies.

Is this code suitable:

unset( $_COOKIE[$PHPSESSID] );
setcookie( $PHPSESSID, '', time() - ( 15 * 60 ) )

Maybe this is an alternative solution for you all without any plugin except wpDiscuz https://gvectors.com/forum/general-forums/gdpr-checkbox-easy-going-made/

In a few days with wpDiscuz 5.1.0 version you can:

Create a checkbox for GDPR using this documentation:

Will there also be a solution to deactivate Gravatar?

I've deactivated it in wpdiscuz and Wordpress, but according to Ghostery it's still active and tracking.

Great feature to set the cookie lifetime. But can I also turn cookies off completely? For every page a visitor visits a seperate cookie wpdiscuz_last_visit seems to be set. Too much cookies in my opinion. So I want to turn this feature off - but can I do this?

I'm having an issue with step 2 in that link you provided for adding the Cookies Consent Checkbox.
I am missing the "Cookies Consent" button in my list of available buttons:

Capture

I am running Version 5.1.0
How do I get this button to appear?

Thank you.

Hi mstureda,

Please delete all caches and check again. Let us know if it doesn't help.

Hello,

I deleted all caches and still do not have this button available when I try to add it to a form.

I even deleted the wpDiscuz plugin, purged all cache again and re-installed it.
I'm running Wordpress 4.9.6. Adding the other GDPR agreement button works fine but this Cookie Consent button is just not available in the selection screen for me:

Capture2
