iOS Comment Notifications?

  1. Is the iOS Wordpress app supposed to send push notifications for new comments placed on my blog?

    I have comment notifications turned on by email, but I've never had the app send a push notification to me about comments.

  2. Hi epitom3,

    Yes the iOS WordPress app can send push notifications when you receive comments on your blog, the settings to enable this are found under the me menu in your app -> notification settings.

    From there, you can select each of your own blogs (and those that you follow) one by one by tapping on the name of the site. That will open up a menu that allows you to change your push notifications, notifications tab, and email notification settings.

    Once you get into the push notifications menu for the site of your choice you will be able to toggle on and off which events will trigger push notifications. Please note you will also have to have your phone set to allow push notifications from the app too.

  3. Thanks Anna!

    I currently have the app connected directly to my self-hosted site and I think that's causing the Notifications section to not appear.

    I noticed before when I log in via Wordpress.com that that section does appear.

    When I log in via Wordpress.com though, I have some issues with updating my site (i.e. image uploads fail, all my blog posts fall under my admin user). I'll have to see if I can solve those issues.

    Thanks for the help though! If I'm missing something that should cause the Notifications section to appear despite having a self-hosted blog, let me know.

  4. Happy to help! That could certainly account for missing functionality in the app that's provided by Jetpack and WordPress.com.

    We'd be happy to help you get logged in via your WordPress.com account and troubleshoot the issues you're having with image uploads and blog post assigned users, that doesn't sound like it's working how it's supposed to at all!

    Please go to "Me > Help & Support" in the app and tap on "Contact us" so we can investigate it from there. Please make sure to include the address of your website in your message so that we can take a look and troubleshoot.
