How to setup Pushover notifications

  • 1. If you do not already have a Pushover account, you will need to create one here.
  • 2. Once you have created your Pushover account, you will need your Pushover 'User Key'.
  • 3. Now in OnWebChange, navigate to the 'Account Settings' page and click the 'Notifications' tab.
  • 4. Click the 'Enable Pushover notifications' checkbox
  • 5. Then enter your Pushover 'User Key' and optionally a 'Device Name'
  • 6. Click the 'Save notification settings' link to save your settings.
  • 7. Now that your account is ready to send notifications to your Pushover account, you can now configure your trackers to send change notifications to your 'Pushover' devices.

How to configure a tracker to send Pushover notifications

  • 1. Once your account has been setup to send Pushover notifications you can configure your trackers to use Pushover
  • 2. In OnWebChange, navigate to the 'My Trackers' page.
  • 3. Create a new tracker, or edit an existing tracker.
  • 4. In the tracker editor dialog, navigate to the 'NOTIFY' tab/section.
  • 5. Simply check/enable the 'Pushover' notifcation option and save your tracker.
  • 6. The next time your tracker detects content changes, you should be notified to your Pushover device(s).

How to track multiple page items

A powerful (and poorly documented) feature of OnWebChange is the ability to track multiple parts of a web page. Essentially we just combine individual item selectors together with a "," comma. So to select every "H1" tag and every "P" tag, we combine these to produce the selector "H1,P".

The following steps will show you how to track two different parts of a single web page with a single tracker:

  • 1. Click to create a new tracker and enter "" as the Content URL.
  • 2. Click 'next' to select the content.
  • 3. Clicking the page text "Example Domain" will generate the css selector "H1".
  • 4. Clicking the "This domain is established...." paragraph will generate the css selector "DIV P:first".
  • 5. When we combine these with a comma "," to produce the css selector "H1,DIV P:first".
  • 6. Enter "H1,DIV P:first" as the CSS Selector and click the '... or use your own' button, you can see that BOTH items are now highlighted.
  • 7. Click 'next' to go to the Content tab, then click the 'Test' button.
  • 8. You will see that OnWebChange will inform you that 2 items have been selected and are separated using the "|" character.
  • 9. You can now continue to create and manage your tracker as normal.

Using this technique you can select and track as many page items as you wish.
