FAQ

Do I need to integrate any other custom code to my site other than this plugin?

In 98% of the cases, all you need to do is to activate the plugin and you are all set. In ~2% of cases, for HTTPS sites specifically, the plugin is not able to store a service worker JS file to your site’s root directory due to permission related conflicts. When & only when this happens, you will need to manually download (from inside our plugin), unzip and store this file to your site’s root directory.

I am currently using a different plugin to enable web push notifications on my site. How can I move my subscribers from my current plugin to Webpushr?

After you have successfully integrated Webpushr to your site, your previously subscribed users from the old web push service provider (such as OneSignal, etc.) will be automatically re-subscribed to Webpushr once they return to your site. Your previously subscribed users will NOT see opt-in prompt during re-subscription – it will happen silently & automatically.

One of the best plugins I've tried in the past few years. A clear dashboard with many filter functions. Unfortunately, the business strategy has changed in the past few days. In the beginning, automatic push messages were promised free of charge with no limit. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case. Everything has to be paid for, too bad. I hope this strategy is revised again, that would be really great. I would like to test over several months to then decide whether this plugin will be suitable for our company in the future. The 5 star comes when the plugin engineers think again. The plugin has great potential, but you have to start small and win customers with gifts to be better than all other providers

This plugin in very simple to install and configure. I really like the ability to automatically send push with every new post. This makes managing web push campaigns super straightforward.The plugin also shows stats on total subscribers as well as stats on each push (number of notifications sent, delivered, clicked, etc.). Highly recommend.
