Cookie consent banner

Hi everyone,

I want to create a cookie-consent banner. I briefly studied the options, and it seems that there are two common ways: 1) use an (payed) management service, or 2) use a script, similar as in this YouTube tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_y0zPEAFvJc

The second option, calling an external Javascript, actually increased the amount of cookies on my site from 4 to about 26 (???). Isn’t that a massive red flag something is going on?

In any case, I would like to achieve the same (meaning without an external service), but without calling on an external script. In Webflow University I found some interesting references in the section of Facebook Pixel consent (https://university.webflow.com/article/facebook-pixel). I tried to implement this, but without success.

I am not a programmer, but I am willing to learn. My question: is it realistic to implement my own JS script in the project’s footer? or should I just sign up with one of these services?

Cheers!

Hi @anthonyh,

If your aiming for RGPD compliancy, you’d need a lot of programming skills / backend knowledge as you need to log every consent, provide cookie declarations etc…

I use cookiehub v2. Their script only adds one cookie. It has cookie scanning and declaration, language detection. And it’s easy to add to your project as well, takes literally 5 mins per client.
