I would like to ask for your help regarding a problem.
The phonegap-plugin-push (v1.4.3) only shows the icon on every device in the notification zone, if I set the "android-targetSdkVersion" to 20. But I need to set it to at least 23 because in Google Play I can not upload the apk file. It says in an earlier application the settings are on 23 and now 20 is not acceptable anymore, so I can not upload the newer version. I tried updating and refreshing the "phonegap-plugin-push", but then it does not build the XDK, because it shows "gradle script" error. I attached some pictures of my current configuration. Can you help me how I can get the the plugin to show all the icons on a 23 sdk version? (all the icon sizes are available, I don't think this would be the problem)
If I understand the situation correctly, you previously submitted a version of your app that was built with the "Target API" set to 23, and now you want to build with 20. Why don't you just set it back to 23?
In my previous comment I wrote that with the 23 sdk setting the phonegap-plugin-push (v1.4.3) notification icon does not show up on several devices. I tried updating the plugin, but then the XDK does not build the app because of "gradle script" error. I just want to make sure the notification icon shows up on every device. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks in advance
I'm confused by your explanation of the problem, I'll try to repeat what I believe you are saying, below:
It appears the gist of the issue is the significant change in the way Android app permissions are handled starting with Android 6 (API level 23) when compared to the older versions of Android (API 22 and lower). See this SO post for some details > http://stackoverflow.com/questions/35179654/google-play-dont-let-me-update-my-app/35182120#35182120 < which contains a link to an Android developer page with even more details regarding this change.
If my understanding of your situation (above bullets) is correct, then I recommend trying one of the following options (keep in mind that I have no idea why the icons are not showing up, so I'm speculating on the possible solutions -- the plugin author is the best person to query regarding the best solution to the problem -- I'm guessing it is based on some of the issues in the 1.9.3 release):
Beyond that, I suggest you work with the plugin author to understand why you are seeing this problem >
