If you live in EU - this plugin is not perfect. It doesn't stop cookies from loading, as it's requested by GDPR. So I suggest to use different solution which is more compliant with privacy regulations.

A - Read more link you can add manually, field "Cookie Content" support HTML.
"Decline" can be added when block cookies feature would be added, now it doesn't make sense.
B - because of WCAG, higher contrast is better.
C - it doesn't support Multi Language.
D - In current version not.

I hope all is clear now. Sorry for delay with answer.

Hi Paul,

A - Thanks and sorry I didn't read it. About "Decline" see the point D

B - Anyway I mean about a 90% transparency, nothing that can affect content accessibility

C - Can be used Language Overrides ?

D - Really hope in a soon update to be able to use the plugin.
About GDPR, the question is not to live in Europe, but have European users that have to be protected by a GDPR site behaviour...

B - it's easy, but it request custom CSS to override default (or chosen) color.

#sp-cookie-consent {background-color: rgba(32,35,64,0.5) !important;}

C - Text is not from language file. Nope
D - Me too
