How it works:
When a visitor arrives at your site with Fortune Cookie installed, Fortune Cookie looks at which country your user is viewing from (using Geoplugin).
It also looks at where they have been referred from.
If they have come from another site, or typed in your url, or clicked a link in an email and they have not accepted cookies on your site before, then the top bar will appear no matter which page they arrive at (if you have added the Fortune Cookie master to that page), but only if they are from one of the countries you have chosen to show the pop-up.
If they arrive from another site etc. and have accepted cookies on a previous visit , even if they are from one of your designated countries, the pop-up will not appear unless they click the corner panel.
Once the user is on your site, when they move from page to page they will not get the pop-up even if they haven’t accepted cookies in the past and are from one of the designated countries.
Any user from any country can click the corner panel at any time and accept cookies, the default cookie lasts for 1 year, but you can change this to anything you like.
You will of course need to add some code to your cookie writing scripts or apps, to not write cookies unless the Fortune Cookie cookie exists. If a user tries to use an area that is about to set cookies, you could give them a popup message telling them that this function will not work unless they accept cookies, and then your script could exit before writing the cookie. An example is included in the installation notes.
