Thanks for the plugin and a request

Hi John thanks for the plugin, works great. Especially for a site like mine full of so many plugins already, I could only afford to add a light weight plugin like this one. Do you know about Google’s cookie policy notification on Blogspot blogs? They only show this notification to specific countries. Can this plugin also be set to shown only in those countries where required?

Rip off

ยง9/month is a complete rip off for a translatable cookie notification. Shame on you John Peden.

Brakes 3.7.1 instalation

After turning it on, all I can see is:

“Fatal error: Call to a member function get_option() on a non-object in /homez.744/foldername/www/wp-content/plugins/easy-wp-cookie-popup/lib/template-functions.php on line 57”

Now I must manually remove it via ftp :/
