Has anyone added a third party cookie consent form?

NodeBB Development
  • Hello, I am trying civic uk cookie consent for to the forum. Info can be found here:
    I tried adding the same code that worked on 2 different websites, but for some reason it always causes the forums to have syntax errors. The forum will go into a disconnect loop. My guess is it's coming from socket.io. The console just points at different syntax errors coming from different templates that have nothing to do with this. For example, it gives me syntax errors coming from forum/footer and a script error from translator. I tried adding the code snippet from the admin panel on the custom html on the head. I also added it on the head inside the header.tpl. I even tried adding a simple sample from here:
    https://jsfiddle.net/eaufzst4/. The cookie consent form works, but it just causes a disconnect loop. I know nodebb offers its own cookie consent, but the third party cookie consent is a requirement.


  • Please share more details about your nodebb setup. And share what errors you're seeing both on the client side and then server side.

  • @miguel-guzman I just noticed that the Fiddle you included appears to have an API key embedded - hope that's not yours - otherwise, millions of random internet users will be getting this product for free whilst you pay for it ­čÖé

    I am new to NodeBB. I want to use NodeBB for the school, every class will have its own discussion boards, the discussion board can only be accessed by the students in the class and moderated by the classroom teachers. How do I create the board dynamically and restrict access for a certain group of people? I don't need NodeBB's user management system as our application has already authenticated users, so this is assuming students and teachers are already logged in with JWT token stored in the cookie.

    Your help is appreciated!

    I searched quite a while for GDPR consent and did (not suprisingly) found this thread:

    Re: Is NodeBB compliant with the GDPR (the newest legislative spam by the EU)?

    As far as I understood most of the discussion is made there. Furthermore I understood that the GDPR plugin was made for migrating old forums to the new consent mostly required by EU regulations in May 2018. So my problem in 2021 is:

    I would like to ask all our users to consent once again AND to change the sources they are consenting to. I thought the gdpr plugin might be helpful - but as far as I understand I am not capable to unset the consent state with it. So basically my questions are two:

    how do I unset the consent state of (all) users? are they forced to consent for the next login?

    So I'm planning to make a quiz portal using nodebb. I have no clue on how to take the starting step. Could someone guide me in the right direction?

    I'd like to export a list of the users and their emails from a specific group. Is there a way to do this? And if not, is there a way to export all users, but add more fields to the list besides username and email address?

    Thank you

    @PitaJ I used what you posted but now the spacing between each header disappeared. I tried margin-top and margin-bottom but nothing. Also could you tell me how I can remove the text "Categories".
