Support » Plugin: Achievements for WordPress » Achievement Popup Spam

  • Resolved edsmontreal


    Hey all,

    I installed this plugin and it’s wonderful! Everything working just fine except one thing.

    Once you earn an achievement, the popup comes as it’s supposed to, you close it, navigate to a new page and it pops up again. It pops up everytime you change page – and will continue to do so until the user logs out.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi edsmontreal,

    I’m sure Paul will jump in here, but I just spotted this whilst looking for something else. This has been mentioned a couple of times.
    It’s not spam – I would call it a persistant pop-up.

    This is actually intended behaviour, your users need to click the button on the achivement which says, if I remember ‘view ‘users’ achievements.

    I know that Paul has mentioned he maybe doing something that will change that behaviour as it seems some aren’t so keen.

    For now I have changed the text on the pop up button to say ‘Click to accept this achievement’

    The file you need is – feedback-achievement-unlocked.php

    Move that file into your themes folder. I altered the text after php_e as follows:

    <p><a class="dpa-notification-cta" href="<?php echo esc_url( $user_profile_url ); ?>"><?php _e( 'Click to accept this achievement', 'dpa' ); ?></a></p>

    don’t know if that helps at all?

    Thanks for jumping in, Peter!

    Oh ok, I understand – thank you very much for your help! I do hope it becomes an option to be able to just dismiss the pop-up, that way the user has both options, and I like it when users have options 🙂

    Thanks again very much!
