I've recently discovered that Cookiebot appears to be blocking some scripts from loading on my website such as certain JS/CSS files until someone clicks the ok button. If I then refresh the page it all loads correctly.
Display issues include but are not limited to the hamburger/mobile menu not opening and the star ratings icons not displaying. I'm pretty sure neither of these items set any cookies, the menu is built into the theme, the star ratings are generated by the YASR plugin (https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/yet-another-stars-rating/) which I'm pretty sure doesn't set any cookies either.
I've tried switching to manual mode and also tried different loading methods for the script none/defer/async etc but none of these things has helped. I've spent a lot of time trying to debug these issues initially believing it was due to the caching plugins I was using. However, after disabling and deleting these plugins and purging the server cache the issue still remained. I eventually determined it was being caused by the Cookiebot plugin.
I would really appreciate your help with this as soon as possible. I'd prefer not to disclose the domain in an open forum so can you please provide a way of contacting you with this information privately.
