How to Install

To update from a version to a bigger version, all you need to do is just upload the new package over the previous one. There is no need to uninstall it first as you will lose all your parameters. Just install on top.
In order for "Cookies Policy Notification Bar" to function as intended, you need to have Joomla! 2.5 or 3.x installed (preferably the latest version in each major release) and working properly on the right server environment as noted in Joomla! technical requirements here.
Important: We can only provide support for setups that:
- meet the Joomla! technical requirements.
- do not have extension files or Joomla! core files which have been altered in any way.
We can't guarantee that this extension will work with any 3rd party extension, but it usually works if extension is using standard Joomla! HTML.

The plugin is published, but not working.
Most of the times we receive a support ticket with a subject "The plugin is published, but not working. HELP!!!".
Don't panic :)
Here's the solution.
Probably, you are using the great plugin "System - jQuery Easy". This plugin strips the "noconflict" jQuery code. If this plugin is installed on your website, try to disable this parameter (Strip No Conflict Code). Navigate to plugin parameters, click on the tab "Advanced Site Options (Expert users only)" and choose "Strip No Conflict Code" > "No" from "System - jQuery Easy Plugin". Save the new params, refresh your page, and now you are able to see the "Cookies Policy Notification Bar" at the top, or at the bottom, of your page.
