Important: To know which version you are using you must look at the script implemented on your website. The script alone decides the cookie blocking functionality on your website.
In the Cookiebot Manager, in Settings under the 'Your scripts' you can see the difference between the two scripts used for the different blocking modes by switching between the Automatic and Manual cookie blocking modes. The switch between the two options is only a switch between what is displayed in the manager and does not necessarily present the functionality implemented on your website.
You will see the manual script being similar to this:
And the automatic script being similar to this:
If you look close you will see that the difference in the two is:
async removed and data-blockingmode="automatic" added in the automatic blocking mode script.
The script on your website determines whether you are using manual cookie blocking or automatic cookie blocking. Navigate to your website and take a look at the source code of the front page.
If you use Chrome on Windows you can do so by hitting CTRL+U and in most browsers you can left click and choose "View Source".
Search for "cbid" (Use CTRL+F) and you should find a line of code similar to one of the two above. This should tell you what cookie blocking mode is enabled on your website.
Here's an example of how the manual script would look:
Please note that if you are unable to find cbid in your source code, it may be because our script is loaded through a tag manager like Google Tag Manager. If that is the case, your cookie control is also typically handled from within your tag manager through events and triggers.
