Managing cookies

This theme uses a Jekyll include to allow your users to remove cookies and their consent once it has been set.

When using the flow layout you can use the custom_include format to display the components/cookie_manager.html include inside of a container row.


    - row: container_row
        - format: custom_include
          source: components/cookie_manager.html
