    Hey Simone, 

    Yes, you have to add "prior consent" in order to be compliant with GDPR rules. You can check everything about GDPR here: https://www.cookiebot.com/en/gdpr/


    About GDPR under the EU you must get a consent from website users, more info you can read here: https://support.cookiebot.com/hc/en-us/articles/360004104033-What-does-prior-consent-mean-and-how-do-I-implement-it-

    About the "type" browsers use that attribute to interpreter what to run. When the type is changed to "text/plain" you are essentially telling the browser "not to run this code". So in combination with Cookiebot attribute you are adding to the script ( e.g. data-cookieconsent="marketing" ) you achieve the goal to ask visitors for their consent.
    When user accepts the cookies, Cookiebot executes this block of code that you have changed to "text/plain" and sets everything that is inside ( external js files, etc.. ).

    Example:
    <script type="text/plain" data-cookieconsent="marketing"
    src="http://s7.addthis.com/js/250/addthis_widget.js"></script>


    This topic is related to consent iframe: https://support.cookiebot.com/hc/en-us/articles/360003790854-Iframe-cookie-consent-with-YouTube-example

    Hey Simone,

    1. After you successfully go through phase 1 and 2 of the installation guide, your website will be scanned for all the cookies. This could take up to 24hours.
    2. After this go to your Cookiebot account -> admin panel > Reports tab. Here you will find all the reports of your website. After the scanning is finished the report will appear here.
    3. Open the latest report. Here is the list of all cookies and what sets them (which script). For every cookie in the report you can check the "Initiator" and "Source". (check image)
    4. Locate all those scripts that are setting cookies from the report in your files/admin panel and manually change script type from type="text/javascript" to type="text/plain" and add data-cookieconsent="<INSERT COOKIE CATEGORY>". You can find the cookie category from the report. All cookies are categorized in 4 different categories ( necessary, preferences, statistics and marketing ).

    Kind Regards, 
    Martin

    Sorry, but I'm not very practical. What is the file where I have to do the manual editing? (the file fuctions.php, header.php of the theme, wpconfig.php?) I paste the first few lines of the report ... can you give me an example?
