Sorry I need a break from this topic.

I’m an admin of a new Discourse forum running on Digital Ocean. All’s working well so far as we prep to open our doors in a month or so.

The Discourse IOS app is working but seemingly with some quirks. And we just noticed the phrase in the App store description:

“for officially hosted discourse forums”

What should I tell my users to expect with their use of the Apps, both Android and IOS?

Primarily the native notification issue, other than that it will work as expected.

@codinghorror Is there any way to pay for iOS push notification functionality witha self hosted forum?

No, this is not possible. You’d need to use a paid Discourse specific hosting plan, either here or elsewhere.

If it’s a DO discourse droplet?

That is “self hosted” in this context.

Hey @jtbayly I recently published a plugin for pushover that allows a user to sign up for push notifications over Pushover. Other push services could probably be added with not too much difficulty. Maybe this can help scratch your itch here.

Thanks for sharing that here. I had totally missed it.
