Open it and select “Uninstall Discourse Meta” in the menu.
First step: Actually install the PWA. I have a feeling an “open” icon may not be related to this at all.
How long is actually your menu ? It’s one of the lines, around the middle. Not in any sub-section, it’s directly in the main menu (at least it is on Chome on Ubuntu). Sorry, it’s a little difficult for me to provide a screenshot currently.
I think you’re describing something that’s totally different from what I see on Chrome on my Mac.
Ah–the key is that the app has to be open already in PWA-mode to see that option (option is not there if open with normal url-mode). On my own forum, I seem to have lost entirely the button to install as a PWA (used to be there…)
I understand that building a button for the user to simply be able to install the app as PWA would probably require a new theme. My question is whether folks have tried that before. I don’t see a topic on meta about that specifically, though I may be missing it.
Aha, I thought you guys had done some magic on this already
Is this the setting that says: “Displays DiscourseHub app banner on iOS devices to regular users (trust level 1 and up)”?
And (while I understand why you don’t have it set out of the box to work on desktop)–is there a way to have this appear on desktop too? Maybe its some code required in a plugin.
I just meant to be able to install it, and then later uninstall it. What I missed was made clear from earlier in the discussion–that there is an option for this, but you only see it if you have opened the app in PWA mode.
You have to launch the PWA from either Launchpad or by double-clicking the icon in ~/Applications/Chrome Apps and the uninstall option will appear on the menu.
If it launches in a normal Chrome window instead of as a PWA, just delete the icon in the Chrome Apps folder. The only difference between these methods is the former will offer to cleanup the site data in Chrome and the latter won’t.
@Falco, wow would not have guessed that one. I converted the image to PNG and updated that single icon, but have not seen an effect yet related to the PWA. Is there some cache that I need to clear on the site or my phone?
I think I should get a badge for stumbling onto two Discourse bugs in one week.
However, that I took both of those steps and yet the file is still being converted to jpeg. I set the setting to 100%, and I saved my image as jpg with 92% and then exported it as PNG (I couldn’t change the quality on the PNG directly?). Any other workaround ideas, or something I might have done wrong?
