Hi Brian. First time using the add-on, so probably doing something stupid here. All working fine except for when clicking EE’s {clear_all_cookies_link} link. I get my custom message template, but the tags aren’t parsing. Have tried with/without the csm: prefix, but still just get:


The above just outputs instead of the meta and system messages. Any ideas?

Note – the cookie consent mod and links all worked fine before.

Hi, Ian. I will look at that module today to see how it is handling the messages. I have not tested with it yet, so hopefully they didn’t introduce anything new that I’m not aware of.

Great. Bit more info for you. I’m running 2.5.2 with Cookie Consent 1.1 on MAMP Pro. Interestingly…

1. If I click to disallow cookies I get the broken message output. Then, if I navigate to another page I can see that cookies have been disallowed fine.

2. If I then click to allow cookies, I get the system message output fine (“Cookies have been allowed…”), but the meta_refresh is looping, so I remain on the same page. Click here/if not auto redirected link also goes nowhere.

Maybe that helps?

I’m on EE 2.5.2 and Cookie Consent 1.1 and not able to replicate. This is what my error template looks like:







Note the {meta_refresh} isn’t actually in the snippet, thus isn’t inside the <head> tag but still works.

Marking resolved. Works for me. If you’re still having issues please start a new ticket.
