Website Issues

    Hey, did you end up solving this?

    I had the same problem.. ended up I had the cookie consent code in google tag manager and in the header of my website at the same time... derp.

     It is likely due to the implementation of Cookiebot's consent management solution on your website.

    there are a few things you can do:

    1. Check the Cookiebot settings to make sure that the scripts that are being blocked are actually setting cookies.
    2. If the scripts are not setting cookies, you can add the data-cookie-consent attribute to the script tag. This will tell Cookiebot that the script is not allowed to set cookies until consent is given.
    3. You can also disable Cookiebot altogether. However, this will mean that your website will not be compliant with the GDPR.

    I'm facing exactly same issues .. Try RobW suggested solution but not clear

    Can anyone help me

    I wanted to bring to your attention the same I encountered on my website. It seems that Cookiebot is causing certain scripts, including some JS/CSS files, to be blocked from loading until visitors click the OK button to accept the cookies. However, I noticed that upon refreshing the website, everything goes back to normal and the scripts load as expected.

    Cookiebot is designed to get user consent for cookies. It restricts some scripts until users click "OK." After that, everything should work normally. Check settings and update Cookiebot for smooth functionality. Stay compliant with data privacy laws. Good luck!

    It seems like you're facing an issue with Cookiebot affecting the loading of specific scripts on your website until a user clicks the "OK" button to accept cookies. To solve this problem, you can follow these steps:

    1. Review Cookie Settings: First, log in to your Cookiebot account and review your cookie settings. Make sure you've configured it correctly, and that the necessary scripts (JS/CSS) are not being blocked unnecessarily.

    2. Customize Cookiebot Settings: Cookiebot provides various customization options. Check if you can adjust the settings to prevent it from blocking essential scripts by default. You may need to classify certain cookies or scripts as "necessary" to ensure they are loaded without user consent.

    3. Prioritize Essential Scripts: Identify the critical scripts (e.g., those required for basic website functionality) that should not be delayed by the Cookiebot consent banner. These scripts should ideally be loaded before the Cookiebot script itself. Make sure that the loading order in your HTML is appropriate.

    4. Asynchronous Loading: Consider loading non-essential scripts asynchronously. This means they will not block the page rendering process, and users can interact with the site while these resources load in the background. This can mitigate the impact of Cookiebot's consent banner on your website's performance.

    5. Test and Debug: Use browser developer tools and debugging tools to inspect which specific scripts are being blocked by Cookiebot. This will help you identify which scripts need to be prioritized or handled differently.

    6. Cookie Consent Banner Position: If possible, place the Cookiebot consent banner at the bottom of the page or in a way that doesn't interfere with the loading of critical scripts. This can improve the user experience.

    7. Cache Management: Check if caching mechanisms are causing issues. Sometimes, caching can lead to scripts not being updated after user consent, resulting in issues like this.

    8. Contact Cookiebot Support: If you've tried all of the above and still face issues, consider reaching out to Cookiebot's support team. They may be able to provide specific guidance or updates to address the problem.

    9. Compliance with Privacy Regulations: Ensure that your use of Cookiebot complies with relevant privacy regulations like GDPR or CCPA. Compliance requirements might affect how you configure Cookiebot.

    10. Regular Testing: Periodically test your website to ensure that the issue doesn't reoccur with updates or changes to your site's scripts or Cookiebot settings.

    By following these steps and optimizing your Cookiebot configuration, you should be able to ensure that essential scripts are not delayed by the consent banner, while still maintaining compliance with privacy regulations.

    Lime's JS/CSS woes! Cookiebot's blocking some scripts, hiding them till consent clicks. Identify the culprits, check settings and logs, then adjust or consult support. Soon your website will script and sparkle again!

    To address this concern, I recommend the following steps:

    1. Review Cookiebot Settings: Check the settings within the Cookiebot administration panel. Ensure that the configurations align with your website's requirements and that the scripts essential for the proper functioning of your site are not unnecessarily blocked.

    2. Adjust Cookie Consent Banner: If possible, customize the Cookie consent banner to provide users with a clearer understanding of the necessity to allow certain scripts for optimal website performance. This may reduce hesitation in clicking the OK button.

    3. Implement Asynchronous Loading: Modify the scripts that are being affected to load asynchronously. This can help in ensuring that the rest of the page content is not delayed while waiting for the user to give consent.

    4. Prioritize Critical Scripts: If applicable, prioritize the loading of critical scripts that are essential for the basic functionality and appearance of your website. This way, even if some non-essential scripts are delayed, the core features will still be accessible.

    5. Test in Different Browsers: Verify that the issue is not browser-specific. Test your website on various browsers to ensure a consistent user experience across different platforms.

    6. Check for Plugin Conflicts: If your website uses other plugins or third-party scripts, investigate whether there might be conflicts with Cookiebot. Temporarily deactivate other plugins one by one and observe if the issue persists.

    7. Update Cookiebot Version: Ensure that you are using the latest version of Cookiebot. Updates often include bug fixes and improvements that may resolve the issue you are facing.

    After implementing these steps, please test the website thoroughly to confirm whether the problem persists. If you encounter any challenges or have additional questions, feel free to reach out. I am here to assist you in resolving this matter.

    I resolved my client's website issue by doing all this.

    It seems like Cookiebot is causing certain scripts to be delayed until visitors click the OK button. This is a common behavior to comply with cookie consent regulations. If you've ensured that essential scripts are properly categorized and prioritized in Cookiebot settings, and the issue persists, consider reaching out to Cookiebot support for more specific assistance.
