Forum Banner on Screen
Does or have other users seen this before or am I just thick again.
On the Forum pages a banner has appeared just above the thread areas.
It is orange/brownish and has the request to activate desktop notifications.
In my case the request has come from node BB.
I do not have a node BB.
I do have Ethernet g/w
All seems to be running ok and I can delete the banner using the x on the right of banner but it does reinstall again upon returning to the forum
i think that's the forum software.. not anything to do with your "mysensors" physical nodes.
i do get that as well and would like it to go away
Strange. I don't get it in chrome. We're using the latest version of dektop-notifications-plugin.
You might wanna open an issue here describing your problems and/or environment.
I have the same "problem". Chrome once asked me for permissions for this side to display notifications (which I declined ). How I see this banner. You can simply close it by clicking on the x though.
You can accept the request from the banner. It's just a message from the forum requesting your permission to update the number of unread topics in your browser.
I have it when I open the MySensors forum in firefox,
No problems for me when I use chrome. If I use Microsoft Edge on my Surface Pro, Windows 10 then this keeps happening. Not bothered though.
I'm using the latest version of Chrome from a few different systems and always get the banner when first connecting to the forum. Very annoying. This has been happening since the latest forum updates.
i get see the banner with latest version of chrome.
at work laptop
at home laptop 1
at home basement laptop 2
so i see this banner on 3 different systems.
even if you click "click here to activate" it never goes away
Could someone take a screenshot and post it here.
I'm using latest chrome on mac. No sight of it here.
This is Firefox 41.0.1 on Windows 7, but I have the problem on Chrome on Windows 8.1 as well
The banner shows each time I open the forum. I have also noticed that size of window affects if its shown or not, smaller window does not show it for me.

yes what he shows is what i'm seeing.
happens every time, on every machine no matter if you click the x or click here to activate them. keeps coming back no matter what
The banner is shown on my ipad as well, but only in landscape mode (probably due to the browser width as suggested above)
Ok, linked this thread over at NodeBB:
Looks similar to this issue from 1 year ago https://github.com/psychobunny/nodebb-plugin-desktop-notifications/issues/14
Yep saw it... looks like that they solved it once.. wonder why it would appear again.. What makes it even stranger is that only some people is experiencing it.
Corrected a couple of js errors I saw here on this install today. But I doubt that would change anything regarding this issue.
For a dirty quick fix you can add the following custom filter in your adblock preferences (works on µBlock)
forum.mysensors.org###header-menu > .visible-md-block.visible-lg-block.desktop-notification-permission
@emc2 thanks! that worked
No news so far?
Can't help more than referring to this (we're using the latest version of the plugin(0.2.2)):
If we'll get an update I'll install it here.
