Do you need to have a Cookie Consent Banner on Your Page?

Actually CMS does not store any cookies on visitor's devices by default!

So the simple answer is "No!"

The only cookie that a default installation of CMS set is in the Photo Gallery and only if the user alter the default setting of four columns.

During the management of your CMS it sets a few cookies: I.e. if you disable the content help (editing pages and headers) or choose to use the Admin Ribbon instead of the default Admin Cube that choice is also stored in a cookie.


The Cookie Consent Banner script is found in the /scripts/ folder.
Use the Source Code Editor to customize your script.

Find the Source Code Editor on the back side of the Admin Cube.

// Use Elias' script

<script type="text/javascript" id="cookieinfo" src="/scripts/cookieConsent.js">
// Use the built-in script
