[resolved] Am I missing something? (4 posts)

    I'm not sure? LoL

    But when I look at this site: http://minecraftchallenges.com/achievement/npc-village/

    And compare an achievement to mine: http://senilityguild.com/achievement/part-crew/

    How come his is prettier than mine?

    How did he categorize his achievements like that, and how did he include the redeem code. Did he post that in the content - or is this done by template.

    I also like his leader board and would love one for my site too.

    Another issue is to get the directory listing of achievements I have to put achievements in the url instead of as above achievement. (could this be because I have a tag or something else already using the term achievement?

    http://senilityguild.com/achievements/

    I'd also like to remove the link to the author on the achievement page - but not sure how to do this.

    Also, how do I grant all my members an award based on their user group without having to go into each one - one by one...would this be done by using the redemption code?

    Sorry for all the questions, I did try going through all the support questions to answer them.

    Hi kiwi_pearlsnz

    How come his is prettier than mine?

    The owner of that site's presumably built custom templates and CSS to make it look like that. Actually, I think the HTML's been pinched from http://teensummerchallenge.org/achievements/a-tale-for-every-tail/ which is a great site. :)

    I also like his leader board and would love one for my site too.

    The leaderboard in Achievements currently is a widget; take a look. To get it on its own page/URL like that, I'd suggest creating a custom Page, and using the following shortcode: [dpa-leaderboard]

    Another issue is to get the directory listing of achievements I have to put achievements in the url instead of as above achievement.

    No, this is intentional and working as expected. It's just a plural/singular naming thing which I liked better, so it was changed in some previous version. Maybe the site owner's running an old version of Achievements, or has just decided to customise the URLs like this.

    Also, how do I grant all my members an award based on their user group without having to go into each one

    You could use a redemption code, and let users type the code in to claim an achievement. That's probably the easiest solution, and it will also let you see what the active users are in that group.

    I'd also like to remove the link to the author on the achievement page - but not sure how to do this.

    All in all, it sounds like you're going to have a bunch of HTML/CSS customisations that you need to do in order to change the look of the page. How good's your HTML/CSS/basic PHP understanding? If you know some stuff, I'll explain how to begin to customise the templates, and then the hard part's up to you :)

    Thank you so much for your reply.

    I will get fiddling today. I know a fair bit - just need to be pointed in the right direction/files to edit and copy over to my child theme.

    I already edited the loop to show the badge picture, that was easy...found that scrolling through the support.

    So basically, I just want to create an achievement page template I guess and not use the default template that all my other posts use.

    Ok, copy the folder /plugins/achievements/templates/achievements/achievements/ to /themes/YOUR_THEME/ (e.g. /themes/YOUR_THEME/achievements/).

    Any edits you make to those templates in this new location will override the templates that come with Achievements by default. I suggest that once you've figured out which templates you are *not* going to customise, to delete those copies from the theme folder so that you can take advantage of any changes in the built-in templates in the future.
