If you open the site with Chrome, FF, etc, you should get a prompt (for me it was at the bottom of browser) asking if you want to enable push notifications. I just enabled mine so I have no idea how it actually works but hey, theyre live now. iOS users, I dont believe you have access to these but maybe Xen has changed that.

Also, we are now on the latest version of PHP, so you might notice a slight increase in overall site speed.

Big thanks to J Jack for getting us taken care of.

Ahhhh, they are enabled on the admin side but it looks like you need to enable them in your own preferences (even if you tell the browser you want to receive them).

Just go to preferences, check the Enable Push button (as seen below, I've already done it) and then choose what notifications you want in the list below that :)

Looking good. Worked for your like. Now just to turn those off so I don't get a ton of them :rofl:

But it'll be really handy for mentions

Is this computer only? I see nothing about push notifications in my preferences on the phone view

Android or ios?

If you open the site with a phone browser, it'll pop up at the bottom.

Also, go into preferences and enable where I showed.

Step 1 - open the site in a phone browser. Notification pops up at bottom. Accept.

Step 2 - go to user preferences on the site and enable push notifications.

Step 3 - Profit

"Sites" is not an option. I have a bunch of random web addresses but TCG isnt one of them

ok if notifications are turned on in chrome, thats good.

Then on TCG, click your profile name, click preferences.... scroll down and youll see the blue box for "Enable push notifications" that should cause the pop-up to show up manually to enable them.

I just tested it with Chrome in Android and hitting the blue "enable push notifications" button prompted the pop-up to Allow / Block
