How to add push notifications to a WordPress website?
Getting set up to start sending push notifications from your WordPress website takes only a few steps.
From your WordPress admin panel, go to ‘Plugins’. Enter ‘gravitec’ in the plugin search. Select “Gravitec.net – Web Push Notifications”, and click ‘Install’.
After the plugin is installed, you will see two options: “Create new account in 1 click”, and “Connect to existing account”.
If you don’t have a Gravitec.net account, choose the first option. If you do, then select “Connect to existing account”.
If you chose “Connect to existing account”, you need to sign in to Gravitec.net. After you log in, the push service will be connected to your website automatically.
Create a new account
If you chose “Create new account in 1 click”, you will get the Sign Up form to add your website to Gravitec.net. It consists of five steps:
- Add website. Your domain name and the website icon will be automatically inserted on the first page of the form. Click ‘Next’ to continue the sign-up process.
- Automation. If you have an RSS Feed, you can use the ‘RSS to Push’ feature to send push campaigns automatically. These campaigns are created from the metadata of your webpages. Simply choose a period of time when you want to send the news to your subscribers, and click ‘Turn On’.
- Smart Digest. You can send a Daily or Weekly Digest with the most popular news items in one notification. Select a day(s) and time when you want to send the Digest, and turn it on.
- Push Inbox Widget. After adding push technology, subscribers will see the Bell on your website. This feature allows you to store all push notifications in Inbox so that subscribers can see their notification history. You can set the color of the Bell widget, and its location on the website.
- Plans. Here you can choose the Free Plan, which gives you use of the service, with certain limitations. Or, choose the Business Plan, which removes all of the limitations, for a modest monthly fee.
Now, you are ready to click “Get Started”. A confirmation email will be sent to you, which will prompt you to “Enter Password”, which finalizes your Gravitec.net account creation.
Once you are registered, you have the ability to change your email address or/and password in Account Settings.
In Gravitec.net, there are five features for sending push campaigns automatically.
