myCRED

Description

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, are a few examples of the ways myCRED is used.

Points

Each user on your WordPress websites gets their own point balance which you can manually adjust at any time. You can use just one point balance or setup multiple types of balances. How these balances are accessed, used or shows is entirely up to you.

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.

Totally Absent support

I ‘ve opened a support ticket Since October 29 2018, increased the priority ticket to level 2 (Premium),the March 5 2019, and to level 3 (High) the March 10 2019, and at last to level 4 (Urgent), the higher level, the April 2 2019, what I have to do to get support for this plugin?

Support Team has your back

I've been very impressed with this product, and everything that it includes for free without branding! Really impressed! When i had an issue, their support team was able to log into my account and fix things on my end for me, making my life really easy! Thanks guys!

A real cluster**** lately

So, you get a lot of reviews here that are just one sentence reviews that tell you actually nothing. Of course they always end up Five Stars. One often has to wonder if these are paid reviews or not. Who knows, but they are clearly no brain reviews. Roughly 2 months ago a new dev team took over this plugin. Over the last 3-4 weeks they have been constantly pushing broken updates. Yet for some reason they only have five star reviews in this entire time period without a single critical word. Curious. I've been a user of MyCred for a couple years. Many point systems gave come and gone in that time. MyCred has been the most stable. Unfortunately the 1.8 update at the beginning of March was the worst fiasco and dumpster fire I have ever been a part of. The dev team seems to be allergic to the idea of actually testing their own crap before they put out live updates. They pushed the 1.8 update with many features broken. Breaking tons of sites. A few days later 1.8.1 came out, and didn't seem to fix most of the problems, then came along 1.8.2 that fixed some minor stuff but did not fix the major problems. Two weeks later we finally got 1.8.3 that fixed some of the major problems. It took them two weeks because instead of working inhouse to produce a solution they wanted to have their devs go access live production sites like mine and screw around until they came up with a fix, and fix everyone's site individually before they actually produce 1.8.3 with a fix to push for everyone. The guy that worked on my site actually broke things multiple times leading to me losing members and having to reinstall the plugin and go through the whole setup all over again and give the members their points all over again. To make matters more frustrating, I bought a premium add-on just a day or two before 1.8 came out and broke my site. I tried to get my money back for the add-on I was not able to use and they just kept stalling me until their 14 day refund window expired. Now they have it fixed enough I can partially use the add-on but a part of me certainly feels like this money was stolen from me. $70, gone. I have since had to open tickets asking for fixes for other stuff that still is not working as it's supposed to. Their support team is asking for admin access to my live production site in order to play around on my live production site to see if they can find out what is wrong. Because these people can't wrap their minds around the idea of in house testing. The problem I am having isn't a problem unique to my website or any alterations I have made. This problem also exists on a fresh install in a test environment, but they want to poke around on my live production site instead. So yes, I am still using this plugin. Because alternatives really don't exist. One thing is for certain, this is a support team that should be features on those 'tech support from hell' blogs.
