    Hi David,

    Unfortunately, what Ruud writes is correct. For Cookiebot site.com/en-gb and site.com/fr-fr are the same domain and consent will apply to the entire domain.

    The case your referenced to needed, scans needed to be performed for only a part of the domain (a sub folder). This can be configured on request.
    This is a separate issue though. And doesn't help you achieve the result you describe,

    Hi David,

     

    That wouldn't be possible on your current setup as you only have one domain (http://site.com). The scanner will scan your entire domain regardless of the scripts you use. This is by design as all your cookies (eg cookies from http://site-com/fr-fr and http://site.com/en-gb) are served from the same domain (http://site.com).

    If you want to separate consent for your subfolders you should set up different domain names for each folder. (if you want to use one site-name you could reverse it eg http://eng.site.com and fr.site.com).

     

    regards,

    Hello Ruud,

    That's a bummer. Actually i noticed a post similar to mine which had a positive reply : https://support.cookiebot.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360014560853-Scan-only-in-Subdirectories-possible-

    Is it possible to do the same thing for my request ?

    Thank you for your help.

    Hi David,

    I've never seen it like that before.But if Cookiebot can set that up for you that would be great. Bear in mind that this will add some additional workload for you. 

    Is there a specific reason why you want to configure it this way?

    Yes, the reason is that the websites are not related to one another (even if it is a multi-sites). As a consequence, when the user accepts cookies on one site he must not have automatically accepted the cookies on the others, since the contents, technical features and site authors are different
