Plugin Support

Free support is offered Monday - Friday 9 - 5 (UTC+1) via the myCRED support forum.

I felt that todays WordPress community lacks a flexible points management system. Existing system often feel restrictive, stale or lack support for popular plugins.

So I built an adaptive plugin which gives it’s users full control on how points are awarded, used, traded, managed, logged and presented. Built on the "opt-in" principle, it is up to you what features you want to use and how. If your WordPress installation does not support a feature it is hidden from you to keep things clean and simple.

myCRED comes packed with features along with built-in support for some of the most popular WordPress plugins out there. But of course myCRED does not support everything out of the box so I have documented as much as possible in the myCRED codex and you can find several tutorials that can help you better acquaint yourself with myCRED.

I am here to help where ever I can but please remember that right now this is a one man show and I do need an occasional coffee break.

You are welcome to post your issues or questions under the "Support" tab but remember that myCRED has it's own online forum along with F.A.Q. page and an online support page.

About Hooks

myCRED hooks are instances where you award or deduct points from a user. By default you can award point for: registrations, logins, content publishing, commenting, clicking on links and viewing YouTube videos. You can find more information on built-in hooks here.

About Add-ons

myCRED add-ons allows you to enable more complex features that is not just about awarding / deducting points. Features include: Sell Content with points, Buy points for real money, Transfer points between users, award ranks according to points balances. You can find a complete list of built-in and premium add-ons here.

The Codex

If you are comfortable with PHP or have some experience with customising your WordPress installation, I have documented as much as possible of myCRED in the Codex.
