    Hey xfrocks --edit, figured that out...

    edit again- figured something more out...

    Now i'm getting an error message: pushbutton email could not be detected, the email I am using with pushbullet and with the forum are the same...

    You are fast at figuring out :D

    Which server are you using? And where did you get that error message?

    I get the error message after testing the link within Pushbullet - it takes me to my forum, then gives that error. I'm running on Linode.

    Have you tried associating your Pushbullet account with your XFROCKS account?

    I had tried not to since I thought that I should have:

    Forum Super Admin username+ email +pushbullet as the same.

    Vs a secondary account (used for xfrocks)+ associated (secondary)email not having a connection to the forum.

    If I use the xfrocks details would the members ever see any issues there/ such as updates not being pushed by the admin but by the secondary account in some way?

    No, email doesn't have to be a match. I mean, you should test your personal Pushbullet account with the xfrocks.com site itself. Go here to start External Accounts

    I think I got it figured out! Thanks very much. I was missing where to connect on my side (IE the External Accounts link) now it seems to be working, thank you!

    I am attempting to use Pushbullet. When I go to their page and create a client ID, the resulting page is a jumble. However, I figured out which is the client ID and which is the private key, and it seems to have worked correctly! So, great job xfrocks!

    I only am concerned that Pushbullet may start charging for their service. I would like to use this on a big board, and it likely will generate thousands, if not tens of thousands, of notifications per day. I would not want our users to get used to the service, then have to discontinue it due to cost. I do wish Xenforo would build this functionality into the core--if they had someone develop their own app for push notifications (which would accept pushes from any Xenforo forum, not just one), and let the forum's server handle pushing the notifications, it would be idea. I would pay extra for a license for that.

    I got two more questions...

    If the user wants to change the alerts that come to pushbullet - is there a way, or should they just change their XF alert preferences?

    How do I swap my membership here to the monthly subscription?

    Yes, the push notification will respect the alert preferences.
    Regarding Webmaster user upgrade, you will need to wait until your current upgrade expire for that. Sorry.

    I'll move my post from Xenforo here.
    When I try to associate my user account with Pushbullet it just keeps on going forever after I've clicked the "Approve" button. (Animation just keeps spinning)

    My settings
    Name: Swedroid Forum
    Website URL: http://www.swedroid.se/forum
    Redirect URI: http://www.swedroid.se/forum/register/pushbullet
    Allowed_origin: http://www.swedroid.se/forum

    *example.com/forum = XF root folder

    Can you tell me if there's anything wrong with my settings or do they seem to be correct?

    Since they don't specify which is which I noticed that by hovering over the "click here button" the App ID is the first one. Is this correct?

    Edit: What the....it just started working. I did it all over and in the exact same fashion. Would you mind adding something like this to the resource overview to make it easier for folks?

    Settings (example)
    Name: Forum Name
    Website URL: http://www.example.com/forum
    Redirect URI: http://www.example.com/forum/register/pushbullet
    Allowed_origin: http://www.example.com/forum

    /forum = Xenforo root

    App ID is on the top right, secret is on the bottom left.

    Edit: And one more thing - can you add a tooltip that explains each of the alerts or anything like that? It's not very clear by the list (at least not for anyone new to Xenforo).

    System Alert:
    Conversation: Notifications for new private messages
    Post: Notifications for new posts in watched threads (??)
    Profile Post: Notifications for new posts on your personal profile/wall
    Resource Rating:
    Resource Update:
    Thread: Notifications for new posts in threads you create (??)
    User: Notifications when mentioned (??)

    Edit: Is there any way to edit pushbullet notfication settings without disconnecting/reconnecting the account? I can't seem to find any settings for it.

    Well, many people reported that Pushbullet won't work right after registration. You may need to wait an hour or so before the Approve button works. Strange, yes.

    For the tooltip, it will be a bit hard because the add-on try to support all kinds of alerts from third party add-ons and it may not have tooltip for all alerts. I will see what I can do. Nice suggestion though :D

    I finally figured out why Pushbullet wasn't working for me.

    I wasn't copying the complete Pushbullet Client Secret key text. Instead of dragging-copying with my mouse, I double-clicked on the text and then copied/pasted.

    Just my opinion, but it doesn't appear that Pushbullet will ever need to charge anyone. They are collecting a crazy amount of data ;)

    After creating the PushBullet app, just wait a bit before using it. It may take a while to work on their server.
