How To Configure PushEngage Plugin For WordPress Websites?

PushEngage offers multiple features and settings in the WordPress plugin. Before sending push notification from the WordPress account, you need to complete the basic WordPress push notifications settings. You need to set up 3 basic settings after you have installed PushEngage on WordPress:

PushEngage WordPress Post Settings
  • Auto Push If you want to send a Push Notification immediately after you publish a post, then check this button. For every new post, it will send a notification to all your Push Notification subscribers
  • Allow Post Types
    In WordPress, we also publish articles in other formats like Page. If you want to send a notification for all other post types, then check this button.
  • Use Custom Images
    PushEngage allows you to send images along with the notification. If you want to select your Featured image as the image to be attached with your notification, then check this button.

After setting, if you open any new post, you will see that Send Push Notification is already selected. Another important thing is to flush the cached post by installing PushEngage. If you are changing any settings in your PushEngage account, kindly flush your cache. This way you will be able to see the changes in effect faster.
