Website Update

Post by Steve D » Tue May 11, 2021 7:09 am

Hi,

Finally finished updating my WWB website - should be fully responsive (used WBB16) using Justified Galleries, Card Containers, Layout Grids and more. Would be great if anyone can have a look - all comments (good or bad), or suggestions always welcome. The website is https://www.steve-davison.co.uk. Thanks for looking.
Steve

Steve,

The site may be fantastic, but I got stuck because I don't agree with your privacy policy where, for example, you suggest disabling a lot of things (like cookies) globally just to view your site. Why can't you have an option to reject saving YOUR cookies? What benefit do YOU get from having cookies?

You say "You may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or searching for online information about cookies (e.g. https://www.aboutcookies.org.uk)." Well, I prefer to disable cookies on your site but not others - so how do I do that?

Sorry to go on about this, but your site illustrates what a lot of sites also do. And unless you can explain WHY you need cookies (which I didn't see), I think you will lose viewers.

Alan

Hi Alan,

Many thanks for looking at the website and your reply - it's a very interesting one and I'm not sure how to answer it.

If WWB had a facility of adding a cookie policy and either Accepting or Not Accepting cookies I would jump at implementing it, however, I've not been able to find one and my programming skills are not up to the job of making a custom cookie acceptance.

Would be great if someone on the WWB forum could point me in the right direction.

Steve

Does your site use cookies? If so, what do you use them for? You must know. If you don't use them, why have the banner?

My sites (www.penninescouts.org.uk is one) doesn't use them itself. Any third parties that I link to may do so, but that is not my responsibility and I explain that in my privacy policy. So, the site itself doesn't need to have an 'accept cookies or sod off' banner.

The site looks great the only thing I would suggest is to create a new header something that stands out text alone doesn't grab me maybe the use of a different font.
I agree with Alan the end user(s) shouldn't have download plugins and change there browser settings just to comply with your privacy settings. Can I ask why every page has a cookie policy it's a bit monotonous to have to agree to it all the time once on the "Home" page is enough to suffice. Sorry from knowledge there isn't currently any cookie / gdpr extension that gives the end user(s) the choice to select the choice to agree to specific cookies this would require a custom script.

Hi,

Thanks for all the help and patience - I think I don't understand the rules on cookies; the website uses Google Analytics (which uses cookies), however, I thought I had to use that to get access to Google Search Console (which is the only bit I'm interested in).

It appears I was wrong and I don't not need to have a Google Analytics Cookie on the website to use Google Search Console. Therefore, since Google Search Console does not use cookies, I assume I do not need to have a banner on the website telling visitors about cookies, so long as I remove the Google Analytics code snippet.

Does this sound right ?

Steve

Looks great, though I dont like the cookie popup.
Great photos and respond well.

I dont like the blue menu up top. I am doing that now and dont like on mine.
I think responsive menu needs better aesthetic options.

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback - the cookie popup will be removed (not required now as there will be no cookies), not sure why captcha is not working - I'll look into that one. Also thanks for the comment about the menu icon.

Thanks for all the comments - google analytics cookies and the cookies popup have now been removed; a new (colour-matched) menu icon on smaller screens has been added.
