pierce submitted a new resource:

OneSignal - Exclusive on TAZ One Signal notifications for Xenforo

This mod is exclusive to TAZ only. You will not find it anywhere else on the internet.

Why TAZ only?
- Because at TAZ I have, I feel like I have made a lot of good friends. There is a good support community here.

Why is this mod free?
- I think forums need all the chance they can get. This mod took me 3-4 days of sheer excitement last year, to figure out and code. (Coding was only a few hours, but the research was quite heavy).

What level of experience do I need?
- You need to be...

This seems pretty nice. I'm going to need to set aside some time to go through the motions but I will...

If anybody wants a demo site I'm in the middle of setting up HTTPS://tuber.city

I am using the site above to teach my cousin how to set up a site so it's slow progress but we are getting there.

woody I can see the download button?? Ah no blue dot.

easy fix....on it :) Odd, since I could see the DL button for another Resource, but it looks like it isn't tied to a specific forum software either....

Thank you for posting the test site. It works awesome on my Chrome desktop browser. On my Android phone it gets a little more complicated. Is that "Unblock Notifications" popup because of my phone's specific settings? Or does everyone get that?

Its only because when you visited the site, it either said allow or block and you hit block...

You can also tap on the Green https lock and it should say

https tuber....
your connection is private... details

Notifications.... Allowed (for me, yours are probably different)

That's the thing - I never hit anything to block the site. When I visited, at the bottom right was --- oh --- that "bell" at the bottom - I did click that. I never saw it before so I figured that was the button to hit to communicate with OneSignal... I think most people might do that... The bell is the only unique thing on my Android screen that indicated some type of direct communication...

Hmm, normally it should ask.

Try:

Do they do the same?

When I first visit any of the sites, there's a little "1" in the red bell. I click it to see what that "message" is and - I'm not fast enough to take the screen shot - but it basically says the click the bell to receive notifications. I do - but nothing else happens. If I click the bell again, I get that popup pictured in my screenshot.

This doesn't sound like anything you have control over. It sounds like OneSignal's "thing"...

Sal Collaziano i have only seen this happen in incognito mode.

The thread 30,000 reasons wouldnt be gaining 340+ subs a day if everybody had to do that.

eva2000 i must give you credit where due, it was your site i first seen it. That is why I was asking you about it :). I did not want to go back to mobile apps and thought browser notifications were the way forward.

Just i am not pushing for every forum alert. Just manual notice push outs for security and critical bug fixes for Centmin Mod LEMP stack users :)

I'm definitely not in incognito mode but it's probably something to do with my device's specific security settings. Let's just table it and come back to this if anyone else has a similar issue.

All I can say is that adoption wouldn't be at 8500 devices per month if it was any more than "Accept or block".

eva2000 is right about click through it is about 10%.

When I was doing some interesting things like aggregating RSS to onesignal notices my problem was the volume was too high. (I have the code but requires full shell access and cronjobs and is 0% user friendly)

Example:

upload_2017-2-16_17-36-22.png

You can see the normal traffic my campaigns generated. The bit in the middle was when i was using the "lastnode_id" tag with RSS aggregation..

I personally decided against it because it was annoying people too much. Maybe 3-4 complaints over a month, explaining to users how to block notices even though every notice comes with a gear symbol allowing you to turn them off. So it was able to generate 4500 sessions. Analytics says 12,400....

That was when I had 15,000 devices registered~ i have no idea how much it would be now. I would be almost afraid to push a notice to that many devices.....

Awesome! Thanks for the plugin, I'll give it a shot tonight or this weekend. I've been using OneSignal on a non-XenForo site for quite some time now and it's a great solution.
