Fixed 3rd party identifiers for BB Code Media sites


Well-known member
Affected version
There are a few issues with 3rd party identifiers for BB Code Media Sites:

  • TikTok is missing an identifier
  • Instagram and Facebook share the same identifier meta
    While it is correct that both services are offered by Meta, they are individual services and it therefore should be possible to allow users to give individual Consent, so those identifiers should be instagram and facebook (maybe additionally set meta as well)
  • Apple Musis has identifier apple
    While this identifier is only used for Apple Music it seems too broad; applemusic would be better
  • YouTube uses identifier google which is also used by Google Analytics (smth. entirely different!) and Google ReCaptcha (also smth. entirely different)
    Users might wont to allow YouTube videos, but diallow Google Analytics.
    Besides that, the legal entities offering those services are different anyway - YouTube is offered by YouTube, LLC while Google Analytics is offered by Google, LLC
    So the identifiers should be youtube, google-analytics and google-recaptcha (or smth. like that)

Thank you for reporting this issue, it has now been resolved. We are aiming to include any changes that have been made in a future XF release (2.2.13).

Change log:
Adjust several cookie third party identifiers
There may be a delay before changes are rolled out to the XenForo Community.
Thanks for implementing this change, this is highly appreciated :)

It would be extremely useful to know the changed identifiers so we could already start development (without having to wait for 2.2.13).
