BadgeOS
[resolved] Points don't seem correct (8 posts)

    With the inclusion of Points Totals, I noticed they don't seem correct. At least for my installation.

    As you can see from this screenshot - http://i904.photobucket.com/albums/ac244/Rastarr/Photobucket%20Desktop%20-%20martinsmac/Shades-8_zps71e3fbd3.jpg - this is my profile.

    Just this one award that I have earned has a points allocation of 950 yet the widget is only showing 430.

    Any ideas?

    another member sent this in from their profile, showing 0 points despite having 5 badges that each have points attached to them.

    Able to confirm discrepancies with my own localhost, so, checking on it. Filing bugs when necessary.

    Question for you Martin.

    Did you earn the award before or after the point total was assigned? I'm wondering if adding the points for the badge doesn't update point values for all who already earned it.

    Also, what are the settings you have for the badge in question?

    All the points were assigned to all badges on creation and publication of the badge.
    You can see from the second example that every badge for this member has had no points given for any of the badges - and the majority of these were created when I first installed BadgeOS.

    So far all my badges are issue once and can be achieved once, though the I do have one that expires after 90 days.

    " I'm wondering if adding the points for the badge doesn't update point values for all who already earned it. "

    Not sure what this means, Michael.

    Meaning say you create a badge, but don't assign any point value to it. 3 people: Joe, Sarah, and Aleah, all end up earning the badge. A week later, you decide to assign a point value to it, so you go click "edit" and give the badge a value of 100 points and hit save.

    Do Joe, Sarah, and Aleah suddenly get 100 points more as they've already achieved it? Or is it just anyone else after you hit save that get the points. Something the BadgeOS devs may want to make sure happens, even if it doesn't apply to your specific case above.

    Regarding the point discrepancy, the widget calls a function that simply fetches a meta field on each user that stores the point total. So logically the issue is elsewhere and why the meta field isn't getting updated.

    OK, all created badges (of mine) have had points attached to them from the very beginning so any member that has achieved a badge should have had points allocated for each and every badge.
