Description

Plugin Support

Free support is offered via the myCRED website Monday to Friday 9AM – 5PM (GMT+1). You can consult the online community for customisations or open a free support ticket if you can not get myCRED to work as described in the documentation. No support is provided here on the wordpress.org support forum or on any social media account.

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.

Points

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.

Log

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.

Add-ons

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.

Documentation

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.

Customizations

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.

Support

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.

Reviews

Disingenuous

The base plugin is good. It enables helps encourage certain behaviors and participation on my website. However the ‘BP charge’ add-on which I paid $50 was terrible. It almost crashed my site and my users kept getting redirect errors when they tried to access a profile that was charging. For $50 USD I expect a lot more. I also found it disingenuous that they don’t allow people who have requested a refund to leave a review for their paid add-ons. They did however approve my refund easily which is a good thing.

No support

I’ve logged support tickets on the website, and no responses. Great tool, but be wary of the lack of support.

Can’t run setup

Can’t run setup and had installed it before and had several problems since i started use it with permalinks for my site i now uninstalled and Permalinks works just fine.

Unfortunately i had bought a lot of addons that needed this so hope it will be fixed but NOT compatible.

Wow! Support too!

Just jumped ship on BadgeOS after realizing there was no support, and very buggy software. In comparison, I received support within a day for my paid add-on with myCred, and it makes more sense as is better documented.

Unfortunately this caused major issues

We had this plugin installed and discovered that it caused the majority of comments to be hidden. Fortunately we discovered that the reason why was because of this plugin.

Upon disabling this plugin, the problem went away immediately.
