Gaming Codes


Gaming Codes allows each user to enter his gamer codes for “next-gen” consoles. These codes can be displayed in posts as author information.

Also, this plugin can use another plugin, El Aleph, to generate lists of users that have codes for a certain platform.

Examples: * Profile in bbPress. This is a profile page in bbPress (integrated with WP). Note the gaming codes and the gamer card. * User List in Aleph. This is a user view in Aleph, showing all users who are registered in GGPO is a gaming code supported by this plugin.

This plugin is licensed under the terms of the GPL v3. Please see the file license.txt.


If you don’t have ‘El Aleph’ installed:

  • Each user can add his/her own gamer code(s) for Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, XBox 360, PlayStation Network and
  • A template tag for post loops: the_author_gaming_codes.

If you have ‘El Aleph’ installed:

  • A template tag for user loops: the_user_gaming_codes.
  • An user list of people having gamer codes in a certain console/system. The template tag gaming_codes_links displays links to those user lists.
  • The template tag is_gaming_code_listing returns true if the user is browsing a list based on gaming codes.


  • An example profile. You can see the user description, some registration details, and two gaming codes.


  1. Uncompress the plugin in the subdirectory gaming-codes of your plugins directory.
  2. Activate the plugin.
  3. Add the template tag the_author_gaming_codes in your post/author templates.
  4. For El Aleph users: Add the template tag the_user_gaming_codes in your profile/users templates.
  5. Now your registered users can edit their gaming codes in the Dashboard Profile Edit page.
