Question about cookie management and GDPR compliance
First of all I'd like to congratulate you on this great plugin. Exactly the solution that I was looking for.
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.
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 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.
Please follow this support topic:
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:
I am running Version 5.1.0
How do I get this button to appear?
Please delete all caches and check again. Let us know if it doesn't help.
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:
please update wpDiscuz to 5.1.1 version, delete all caches and check again.
Thank you! This solved the problem
