Xen Pushover (Push Notifications) [Paid] 1.2.2

Forum alerts and conversation notifications pushed to your mobile device, powered by Pushover.

    With Xen Pushover installed on your forum, your users will be able to receive their forum alerts directly to their Pushover client.

    There is a Pushover client available for iOS and Android with a desktop client coming soon.

    The only thing you need to do is install the add-on and register a Pushover app.

    Once you have added your Pushover API Token to your Admin CP:


    Your users will be able to connect to their Pushover account using the External Accounts page (therefore, XenForo 1.3 only).


    Your users can get their user identifier by registering with Pushover online, or by purchasing and downloading one of the aforementioned Pushover clients and inputting the ID from their app.

    Once associated, all alerts will be pushed to their device/s:

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Because of where it hooks in to the Alerts system, all alerts are pushed, including those from add-ons.

    Each Pushover API Key is capable of sending 7,500 messages per month for free. After that time, no more alerts will be sent to your users until the limit resets or you purchase additional messages. Additional messages are charged at 50 USD per 10,000. These never expire and will continue to rollover until used completely.

    With that in mind, it's important that you're able to have some sort of control as to WHO can use the Pushover Integration. Therefore, the add-on includes a user group permission (General group):


    Additionally, there is some user criteria to use for Notices, Promotions and Trophies, etc:



    The add-on is running at the Xen Media Gallery website. Create an account there, set up Pushover in the External Accounts page, create some messages in the Test Messages forum or add some media, and log in to the Test Admin account and use that to Like your content to get the alerts sent to your device.


    For the avoidance of doubt, purchasing a license entitles you to the use of Xen Pushover on a single XenForo installation. If you wish to install Xen Pushover on more than one installation then you must buy additional licenses.

    This add-on can be installed using the Add-On Install & Upgrade.


    • Extract the contents of the Zip file.
    • Upload the contents of the upload folder to the root of your XenForo installation.
    • Install in the Admin CP using the provided XML file.
    The add-on can only be purchased using PayPal from the link above. Once payment is complete, your download link will be emailed to you by a service called "FetchApp". Please keep this e-mail safe. This e-mail contains your download link. This download link will always download the most recent version of the product.

    This definitely should help build out user activity on one of my sites.

    Set up instructions:
    1. Create a Pushover account with Pushover: https://pushover.net/apps/build
    2. Once logged in, click on "Register an Application"
    3. Fill in the requested details (choose "Website" as type) and add an icon (the icon is visible in the Pushover app)
    4. You will then get an API Key.
    5. Enter that API key in your Admin CP (Admin CP > Options > Pushover Integration)
    6. You can now access the Pushover Integration in the External Accounts section.
    7. You will get a copy of your user / device key from either your app or from your Pushover account on their website.
    8. Receive alerts :)

    Please make sure you read the add-on description fully, including the cost of the mobile apps for your platform. Your users will need to purchase the add for their devices and it isn't the cheapest app available. But it is worth noting that they may be able to use the app (or already use it) on a number of sites aside from your own.

    People have suggested it might be a good idea to list which sites are using this add-on. I'm going to list sites using the add-on in the FAQ tab of the Resource. If you would like me to list yours, please quote this post and give me your URL.

    TT Pro isn't free either and Pushover rocks..

    Yes, users have to buy the Pushover app. They had to purchase the Tapatalk app until recently too. I therefore don't see a problem with this.

    I don't want a refund, your work is worth the price I paid. Take it back :p

    To clear up any confusion, I "like" the update, not necessarily the refund of the difference. Chris, you're a class act. Really. You are one of the main reasons XF will continue to grow and be successful.

    I hope this had nothing to do with my previous post because I wasn't complaining about the price of the addon.

    Probably because XFRocks has just released a version for $5 by the looks of it. Doh!

    I purchased this instantly when I saw it because it'll finally let me uninstall tapatalk, the push notifications were the only reason I still use it. Plus it's backed by Chris' reputation.

    I only just saw xfrock's version that after I purchased this, ahh well. Will give this version a go anyway :)
