Basic Options

Once you enter the DJ-CookieMonster plugin you'll find settings:

Test mode - this feature is needed when you initially setup the plugin, with this setting the message will be displayed every time you enter the site, so you can check all the settings before going live.

Show once - with this feature enabled you can set the plugin to display the message only once with the first visit of the user. Every page change will make the message disappear and it will not show up again.

Target - with this setting you can determine where the message will be displayed on your Joomla installation, possible options are:

  • Top - default setting - message will be displayed in top of your website
  • Bottom - message will be displayed in the bottom of your website
  • System Message - message will be displayed in the "System message" area of your template (please not that your template needs to have this position - but most templates do)

Close button text - here you can enter your own custom text for close button.

Width - this is the width of the message. By default it's set for 100% so the message appears as a full width bar in the top or bottom of your template. You can change it to other values - for example 980px. This way the message can fit more to your template design. This feature does not apply for "System Message" target type.

Height - this is the height of the message. You can change it to other values - for example 20px. This way the message can fit more to your template design. This feature does not apply for "System Message" target type.

Fixed position - if set to "Yes" the message will overlay the template. When it's set to "No" the message will display below or over the template.

Fixed offset - Depending on the selection you made in "Target" setting this option allows you to display the message in specific distance from the top or bottom of the browser's edges.
