Hi, this is the progress report for the cookie manager project which is currently part of GSoC.

Discussion Outline:

  • Discuss how to use the strings whether they should be in the database or language files.
  • Conclude that we should move strings to the language files.
  • Discuss how to categorise the cookies whether using the category feature of Joomla or in the other way.
  • It’s better to use the category feature provided by Joomla, not need to reinvent the wheel.
  • Discuss the new fields for the database table.

Tasks completed this week:

  • Update the database table according to the new requirements.
  • Remove the dependency of edit page rendering on the id.
  • Remove the search for consents for now.
  • Remove the strings from the database and put them into the language files.
  • Move the default values like policy link and cookie banner position to the component configuration.
  • Add the category component in the cookie manager component for the categorization of the cookies.
  • Create a new page for viewing and editing cookies information.
  • Add the name, description and the duration of the cookie in the edit view.
  • Also, add the empty state layout for the component.
  • Also add the SQL in the installation folder, both for MySQL and PostgreSQL.
