Menu & General Settings
In order to setup the plugin you should be able to see the Fire Push menu in your admin panel. If you can not see this menu make sure the Redux Framework plugin is installed and activated.
In the general settings part you can enable our plugin. You can also disable to save guest tokens here: Tokens are used to send notifications to users. If you do not want to send notification to logged out users disable this option to only save tokens for logged in users.
Furthermore you can enable SMS sending (requires ClickSend account), track notification clicks and remove failed subscribers.
In the credentials tab you need to enter the credentials you copied from our previous article, where we created a firebase project.
ClickSend for SMS Sending
To send out SMS notifications via our WordPress plugin, you need a ClickSend Account.
After that you can get clickSend credentials here.
Default Notification Settings
The default notification settings will be used when no special setting is specified. An example: If you leave out a custom icon on published posts notifications, the default icon will be used.
In the popup tab you can configure how the popup, that displays for the user to get their notification permission, should look like. You can set a position like top or bottom, a style like full or small width and you can configure the texts and colors.
You can enable a custom welcome message if a user has given his permission to receive push notifications from your website. Something like “thanks for subscribing to our website”.
Send custom push notifications with entering title, text and a link URL. Then click on save and then send.
You need to save settings before you click on save
