wpForo 1.x.x [Closed] Share Button Cookies and GDPR
I have the Twitter share option enabled but I noticed that this sets a cookie immediately upon forum visit. This is problematic under GDPR because the user should have to option to opt-in for that.
My question is: Can you implement the share functionality in a way that a connection to the social media platform is only created once the button is actually clicked and not beforehand? This would make the share functionality GDPR compliant.
Any comments to that?
If the plugin sets the cookie then I can't handle this from the outside. Also, why is there a connection to Twitter necessary if no button was clicked yet? You could very well create the connection only when the button was clicked.
This doesn't automatically allow me to set Twitter cookies on my website.
