Does Joomla uses cookies?

Hi
I still have an active Joomla 1.5.X installation of Joomla (shame on me!!!) and I'd like know if my Joomla site uses cookies by default. Is there a way to check that out? If yes I'd like to see where they are generated in order to comply with the latest RGDP law on data .
Best regards

Hi,

Yes, it does. Open the developer tools of your browser to see the cookies. GDPR has nothing to do with the way cookies are generated. It has to do with the way your site handles user personal data. It also requires clear statements about the usage of the cookies and options to revoke permissions. Actually, GDPR is huge a forum post cannot cover everything about it.

Regards

Thanks, I just managed to see that my joomla only has 1 session cookie.

How can I create a message at the bottom of the page that explains about the cookies policy and has a button that invites the user to agree with it other wise it will stay put. Apparently this must be done because of this new law.
