WPBadger is a simple WordPress plugin for issuing badges and adding them to a user's Open Badges backpack.
Download the WPBadger plugin, moving the WPBadger folder into the /wp-content/plugins/ directory on your server. (Note: in order for the plugin to work, it must be installed on a web-accessible server, and not a local machine) If downloading the plugin from github, click tags and make sure you download the latest version.
Install the WPBadger plugin on WordPress like any other plugin.
Configure the plugin by navigating to Settings -> WPBadger Config in the WordPress admin. On this form, fill out some basic information including Agent Name, organization, and contact email address. The award email text is optional.
