Updating to 1.7

If you are using the Banking add-on, Sell Content add-on or the Badge add-on, I highly recommend you read these update guides before you update to 1.7 from older versions!

Plugin Support

Free support is offered via the myCRED website. No support is provided here on the support forum.

myCRED is an adaptive points management system that lets you build a broad range of point related applications for your WordPress powered website.
Store reward systems, community leaderboards, online banking or monetizing your websites content, these are some of the ways you can use myCRED.


Each user on your WordPress websites gets their own point balance which you can manually adjust at any time. As of version 1.4, myCRED also supports multiple point types for those who need more then one type of points on their website.


Each time myCRED adds or deducts points from a user, the adjustment is logged in a dedicated log, allowing your users to browse their history. The log is also used to provide you with statistics, accountability, badges, ranks and to enforce limits you might set.

Awarding or Deducting Points Automatically

myCRED supports a vast set of ways you can automatically give / take points from a user. Everything from new comments to store purchases. These automatic adjustments are managed by so called Hooks which you can setup in your admin area.

Third-party plugin Support

myCRED supports some of the most popular plugins for WordPress like BuddyPress, WooCommerce, Jetpack, Contact Form 7 etc. To prevent to much cluttering in the admin area with settings, myCRED will only show features/settings for third-party plugins that are installed and enabled.


There is so much more to myCRED then just adjusting balances. The plugin comes with several built-in add-ons which enabled more complex features such as allowing point transfers, buying points for real money, allow payments in stores etc.


You can find extensive documentation on everything myCRED related in the myCRED Codex. You can also find a list of frequently asked questions on the myCRED website.


myCRED was not built to “do-it-all”. Instead a lot of effort has been made to make the plugin as developer friendly as possible. If you need a custom feature built, you can submit a request for a quote via the myCRED website.

Code Snippets

The most commonly asked customizations for myCRED are available as code snippets on the myCRED website, free to use by anyone.


I provide free support if you can not get myCRED to work as described in the documentation, and pay myCRED Store Tokens as a reward for reporting bugs and/or bug fixes. There is also a community forum where you can post your questions or contact me directly.

TWEAK – Improved query construction and created a new structure for posting queries.
TWEAK – Updated leaderboard query when leaderboard is based on total balance.
