We haven't yet had the chance to look into push notifications. I have an idea of what they are in general, but don't yet know how they work on the forum. I'll post back here when I have more info.

The following information is from our handy-dandy help file titled: Your Settings.

 

Notification Options

The Notification Options page allows you to configure how you should be notified of certain events, such as a reply to a topic, a private message, or a new topic. You can configure how you would like to recieve these notifications as well, such as via the mobile application, email, or inline notifications.

 

If you're logged on to the forum in your iPhone's browser, at the top of the page in the blue bar is a set of four squares. If you click those bars while logged in to the forum, you'll see a section called Notifications. You can see all your notifications there.

 

I'm not sure about the push notifications and how they would appear any differently. At one point, IPS had an actual iPhone app, but that is not currently available. Push notifications may reference the unavailable app, instead of referencing the mobile skin (which is what people get now when they come to the forum through their phone's browser).

Forgot to say: IPS really needs to remove the push notification option from their notifications area since they have no plans to release a mobile app anytime soon.

We were able to remove the push notification option.
