After not really doing much with this site for a few months, I decided to show it some love recently. I wasn’t sure where to start but knew some things almost definitely didn’t work properly, so I browsed around looking for bugs and sure enough found one.
I doubt anyone here has noticed, but if you’ve ever tried subscribing to Pushover notifications in your settings to receive updates for comment replies, mentions, and direct messages, you’d see that it, well, didn’t work at all. That’s because I never thought to actually set it up.
After spending about an hour tinkering with things, it looks like notifications are up and running for the first time.
To receive push notifications on your phone or computer, you first need to pay a one-time fee of $5 for Pushover. After that you’ll be able to get notified natively whenever someone replies to your comments, messages you, etc. It’s nifty.
Anyways, if you’re into that sort of thing, it works now.
Connecting to Twitter is has also been implemented. To link your Twitter to your Hipppo profile, you can do so in your user settings.
