I’m hoping this isn’t how you’ve designed the plugin and it’s either a bug or a bug within my setup. My expected outcome is:
– With the settings menu cookies are set to on by default ready for the user to accept or change – but these don’t become active until the user has chosen to save/accept
I look forward to hearing from you re a solution for this (that doesn’t involve setting the default settings options as off)

Thanks for using our plugins.
We’re not sure if we understand your problem. If you set the cookies to be enabled by default, then they will be enabled by default (ie. without user consent).
Hope this helps.

Thanks for getting back to me. You explanation makes perfect sense, it’s just not how I thought the plugin would work based on others that I’ve seen. For instance take the OneTrust modal as per https://www.glamourmagazine.co.uk/ where the if you go into cookie settings/more information you can see the slider for performance cookies is recommended to be ‘on’ but it only once a user has specifically accepted, they fire zero cookies on first page load as at this stage the user has not give consent i.e. as per the cookie law.
Clearly you’ve built this plugin differently. Could I request that you add this functionality so that the plugin can be configured as per below:
– on first page load no cookies are fired (as per cookie law)
– user can accept all on the modal (as per the current setup, no change needed)
– when the user goes into the settings the sliders are set based on my recommended settings i.e. analytics (GA etc) set to on and marketing cookies set to off etc. The user can either save or change these but they only become active once the user has accepted them. On their first visit to the site nothing fires by default, but I want to guide them with their choices if they choose to go into the settings.
I hope this request makes sense based on the my explanation and the OneTrust example I’ve shared.
It would be great to have this functionality, but look forward to hearing your thoughts on it.
