In 2023, our team had a need for a Drupal module that would implement a consent popup. We found one: the Drupal project "consent_popup" that unfortunately had some limitations. After a review, our team decided that this module was appropriate for our needs, and that with slight modifications, we could use it in our projects.
Specifically, we needed the following changes to the existing code:
- Redirecting minors to a location outside the website should be possible (feature)
- The module should work without issues for users of Brave browser (bugfix)
- The popup should work for anonymous users (bugfix)
Wasya Co team has successfully implemented the above functionality, and contributed it back to the community.
