Hi Rick,
As you know, the GDPR law came into force in Europe from this month. All kinds of measures have to be taken to make websites GDPR resistant. One of those topics is how to deal with "cookies". To date, I have not done much with "cookies". I have tested my own site with cookie bot and there appear to be several cookies that I know nothing about. How can I learn more about this?
Kind regards, Bas

Bas, there is no central place for you to do this.  The cookies are placed there by plugins and tracking scripts.  You can look at the cookies to try to discern where they are coming from.

When I look at the cookies on this page I find 78 of them, now the majority of those are because I'm logged in.  They come from WordPress, Google, WooCommerce, the forum, my web host and some places I can't identify.
