Following the previous section, I will look at the details of OneSignal, its functions, and the message changes. This allows you to better customize the OneSignal plug-in for your site, deliver higher subscription conversion rates and an unpleasant user experience.
After setting up the plug-in, change the settings in the 'OneSignal Push → Configuration' tab on the left tab of the WordPress administrator page. Let's take a look at some useful features from the top.
Account Settings Account settings
My site uses an HTTPS connection (SSL) - This is a setting that asks if my site uses HTTPS connection (SSL). If it is an HTTPS site with SSL, you can do it.
App ID, REST API Key, Safari Web ID - Previous The app ID and key that you set in the app, and the app ID for Sabari only.
Sent Notification Settings Set sent notifications
Use the post's featured image for the notification icon - Whether to use the thumbnail (thumbnail) of the post in the push notification icon. Thumbnails can be used to highlight the post, and when turned off, they are sent to the main profile icon, which is advantageous for exposing the brand. Personally, icon images in mobile push notifications are too small, so it's a good idea to expose your brand to profile icons rather than thumbnails.
Use the post's featured image for Chrome's large notification image - As above, this means the use of large notification images available only in Chrome.
Hide notifications after a few seconds - It is an option that you will be notified and hidden in a few seconds. Since the default hidden time for each device is different, it is recommended to keep the default settings so that users can use them in the most familiar environment.
Notification Title - The title of the push notification. You can write the site title, title, or phrase you want to use for your name.
Send notifications additionally to iOS & Android platforms - It is a menu to send additional push notifications to Android and IOS (iPhone). If you do not check it, there is a saying that you will go, but do not know if it is.
Prompt Settings & Subscription Bell Set Prompts and Subscriptions
Use an alternate full-screen prompt when requesting subscription permission (incompatible with Subscription Bell and auto-prompting) - It is a function to display a full screen message when requesting to join. Subscriptions are not compatible with bell and automatic messages. Depending on the environment, it may not work at all, and if you are on the full screen, it will definitely be exposed, but it can cause a very unpleasant user experience.
Automatically prompt new site visitors to subscribe to push notifications - New visitor is automatically allowed push notification window. In the case of HTTPS sites, it is often the case that a notification request message pops up on the left side of the address bar window as soon as you access the site. Likewise, it can be converted to a high subscription rate, but it can cause an unpleasant user experience. I personally think that it is pointless to see the contents of a site, and whether it is a trustworthy site, or before I judge whether it is my liking.
Show the Slide Prompt before prompting users to subscribe - Displays a slide prompt before requesting a subscription. This is a step that is a little smoother than the automatic push notification message above. Since the above auto-allow window is forced to focus the browser, it does not get the close window shortcut like 'CTRL + W' You can provide, but this is much less. It's a message that is dependent on the site, independent of the browser, so you can just ignore it. You can also use CSS to adjust your style to make sure you have uncompromising locations and designs, and GKKmon is the way to go.
Enable the Subscription Bell - Activate the subscription bell. Activate the red subscriber bell on the left or bottom right of the site. You can freely subscribe and unsubscribe by clicking on this bell.
Show the Subscription Bell after users have subscribed - Choose whether to continue subscribing to your subscription after you sign up. The advantage is that users can freely cancel their subscription if they continue to use it, but there is also a drawback that they can not be properly subscribed by mistake.
Show first-time site visitors an unread message icon - The first visitor is shown a number 1 icon with one message above the subscription bell icon. It does not mean much, but it really makes me want to raise my mouse.
Show the OneSignal logo on the Subscription Bell dialog - Whether the OneSignal logo is displayed in the subscription bell dialog.
Customize the Subscription Bell text - Subscription Bell Text Customization
Customize the Subscription Bell offset position - Customize subscription bell location, When this function is turned on, detailed setting window appears at the bottom. At the bottom of the screen, you can set how many pixels are displayed on both sides.
Customize the Subscription Bell theme colors - Customize the color of the subscription bell. Likewise, when the function is turned on, detailed color information input window appears at the bottom. Unless you have a specific reason, it is not too bad to write a subscription bell that is familiar to you. GKKmon does not change the color but gives the mobile user a more pleasant user experience by giving the subscription bell color a little transparency.
Size, Position, Theme - Select the size of the subscription bell, left and right position, and color theme.
The following sets the message to be displayed to the user when the subscription bell is pressed. The default settings are in English only, so you can localize them to your site.
First-time visitor message (on Subscription Bell hover) - Number of first visitors 1 Floating message Tip when unsubscribed - Message to be displayed when the person who is leaving leaves the mouse on the bell Tip when subscribed - Subscription messages Tip when blocked - When the notification is canceled Message on subscribed - Thank you for subscribing Message on re-subscribed (after first unsubscribing) - Notification Re-subscribe message Message on unsubscribed - Unsubscribe message Main dialog title - Main screen title Main dialog subscribe button - Main Screen Subscribe Button Main dialog unsubscribe button - Cancel main screen subscription button Blocked dialog title - Block Main Title Blocked dialog message - Blocking message

There are so many different types of OneSignal settings, and the fact that they can be optimized for my site in detail is attractive. It is also useful for all but a few functions.
This plug-in only allows you to set this up, and now you can access the OneSignal site for full-fledged messaging, subscriber management, and analytics tools.
