[resolved] Achievements plugin with rtCamp's BP Media plugin (15 posts)

    Hi Paul,

    I started a topic on the Buddypress forums yesterday about rewarding users with the Achivements plugin for uploading images into their BP Media albums.

    As @modemlooper...

    If you go into the plugin file you will find a folder ‘extensions’ and can see the code that Paul uses to add support for other plugins by extending class DPA_Extension. I would contact rtCamp and ask they include code for Achievements.

    I will look into this.

    I wouldn't really classify myself as a PHP + WP "developer" but I have done a lot of basic coding so as you said, if you could please provide some basic instructions on how to get started, that would be most helpful.

    If I do eventually achieve what I am after, I will be sure to post how I did it back in this topic for others.

    Thanks so much

    Hi serks,

    Thanks for re-posting. First, you need to identify which do_action()s in the BP Media plugin that you want to support.

    Using something like /includes/extensions/inviteanyone.php as a template, duplicate that file, and rename all the things so you have a unique function and class name. You'll probably end up changing most of the constructor, as that's where a lot of the plugin-specific data is set; it should be fairly obvious (the action names are added to the $this->actions array).

    Then to load your custom extension, load it with something like this in a custom plugin:


    function serks_init() {
    require 'my_class.php';
    }
    add_action( 'dpa_init', 'serks_init' );

    Hi Paul,
    Thanks so much for your quick response.

    Using your instructions, I have managed to get an action onto the actions list in the admin. Just to keep things simple for now, I only added one do_action() which is basically when a user adds media. I have set it to '2' for number of times before it unlocks. So far so good.

    Problem...
    I go to frontend and upload 2 items, upon which it successfully unlocks the achievement :) Great, however, after the achievement is unlocked, the 'unlock' pop up comes up on every page I visit on the site. So if I go the home page, or any other page, the 'Achievement Unlocked' pop up comes up again and again on every page, UNTIL I visit the 'Achievements' menu item in my profile navigation. After I visit this 'Achievements' page, the pop up stops showing up on every page.
    Hope this makes sense.

    Here is the code for the extension file...you'll notice I didn't change everything from the invite only extension ie. contributors, description etc. I just want to get it working first and I assume that stuff isn't too important for now. I also got rid of the last part (user_id) as I noticed a couple of the other extensions didn't include it.

    <?php

    reat, however, after the achievement is unlocked, the 'unlock' pop up comes up on every page I visit on the site.

    This is working as intended. I've tweaked the behaviour for the upcoming next version, but what you see now is what is expected.

    Oh ok Paul :)
    Any ideas on how long before the next version is released?

    Otherwise, is there any quick way this could be avoided as it could be quite annoying for a user who doesn't click on the 'View Achievement' button, clears the pop up and continues to navigate through the site, not knowing that he/she must visit the achievements page to stop the pop up?

    Thanks

    No ETA yet, though I hope within two-three weeks at the worse.

    Hey, serks: if you can find a few more interesting actions from the RTCamp BP Media Plugin -- I haven't used that plugin so I don't know what useful user features or actions exist -- send me the class you create and I'll add it into Achievements core? :)

    OK heres my extension file for BP Media...
    Not saying all these actions would be useful but I threw most of them on the list anyway. Bare in mind that I haven't tested any of the actions except the first one which is just to add media. Also, I don't know exactly what all of them do.

    If you end up testing them, let me know.

    Will do.
    I am going to work on other parts of my site for now and come back to it when the next release of Achievements is out, so I will let you know then.

    A small change I made to Achievements to make the persistent achievement notification window a bit more understood by my users: I changed "View My Achievements" to "Accept this Achievement". Doesn't necessarily change the user experience, which I think is ultimately to allow users to stay on the page they're on, but it does change the user's expectations, so that the message properly clear and they at least believe, on the surface, that accepting is a step in earning the achievement. Just a short-term suggestion.

    Thanks for the simple suggestion pmcvicker.

    If I need to deploy before Paul rolls out the next release, think I will surely use your method. After the user accepts the achievement, they can always click 'back' and go back to the page they were on. Easy fix that avoids the confusion.
    Cheers :)

    Hi Paul:

    My Achievements all of a sudden stopped working. What has been unlocked, is still visible, but the plugin stopped working about a month ago. What could be going on? Incompatibility with Buddypress or WordPress, perhaps? I have BP 1.7.3 and WP 3.5.2 (just updated that a few days ago, so probably not WP). I also use WPTouch. Could that be doing something to the plugin? I just love this plugin, and would love to see it working again. I worked very hard at creating achievements for members of my site!

    Best regards,

    Maria

    Hi Maria,

    Please make your own support topic on this forum. This one is about something else entirely and it has been resolved.

    In the new topic, if you can give me a list of what you've done to the site since it last worked -- for example, what plugins or themes you've installed, or upgraded -- and so on. Thanks!

    [ Moderator note: Make that new topic via http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/achievements#postform ]

    @serks

    Please note that most functions are renamed in rtMedia (new major release of BuddyPress-Media).

    Sorry for rework you may need to do because of this.
