[resolved] Possible Shortcode (2 posts)

    Hi,

    I have a poker league that I run at http://www.mikespokerleague.com and I really like the idea of your plugin. Here is sort of what I am trying to do with it.

    I have mingle social plugin and would like to place the badges on the info tab possibly with short-code? then when players achieve things within the league like winning a tournament or getting in the top 5 they are awarded a badge which shows up on the info tab of there profile...

    It would also need to have support for multiple badges of the same type....i.e. people will win multiple tournaments....

    Is this something that you think Simple Badges will supports?

    Is there short-code I can use to display the badges somewhere else other than the author page?

    Will I be able to create unique automated events? i.e. referencing the leaderboard and automatically giving a medal to the player in 1st place.

    Thanks for your time,

    Mike

    Neat ideas. I do plan on making shortcodes and template tags for the basics -- displaying a user's badge count and displaying a specific badge's info -- though I haven't yet decided whether they will be in the core plugin or relegated to secondary plugins. In any case, there will be something available that you can use, yes.

    It would also need to have support for multiple badges of the same type....i.e. people will win multiple tournaments....

    I was thinking about that the other day, and how that might be possible. I'm not quite sure how I would go about it just yet, but I think it would be a fun idea. It's definitely on my radar, though likely as another plugin rather than in the core.

    Will I be able to create unique automated events? i.e. referencing the leaderboard and automatically giving a medal to the player in 1st place.

    My plan right now is to make automated events really easy to create, though the core set will be a bit limited. Things like "if user has posted" "greater than" "100 times" will be the kind of automatic events possible to start out. But as soon as that system's in place it will be filterable by other plugins (I have one or two I'd like to add support for myself) along with instructions for adding custom events that others might not have thought of. As long as the data is trackable in some form or another by WordPress (or a plugin on top of it) there should't be any problem at all with making a specific event compatible with Simple Badges.

    Thanks for your interest; I hope you'll check it out when it's ready. :)
