Support » Plugin: Achievements for WordPress » Award doesn't trigger

  • Resolved Martin

    (@rastarr)


    This was exactly what I was after to assist in envigorating a community so thank you for your efforts.

    I’m running Buddypres 1.7.1, latest bbPress and Invite Anyone and now this plugin on my http://www.geekandjock.com site.

    I’ve set up a half dozen initial achievements for first comment, first group join, 5 invites and register.

    I can’t seem to get the achievement to engage though. I can assign an award manually via the User Admin panel and the popup achievement works fine.

    Is there something I’m missing that might prevent this working?

    What type(s) of achievements had you created that different work? If you’ve still got them, a screenshot of their ‘edit’ page in the wp-admin would be helpful.

    you mean like this, Paul?

    Yep! I’ll build that achievement alongside WooCommerce in the next couple of weeks and see if I recreate the problem.

    You mean:
    [1] Create Woocommerce based achievements
    [2] and look at whether there’s a potential WooCommerce issue such as the one I think there is, in getting the achievements to trigger?

    Obviously prefer [2] first so I can enable live achievements 🙂

    I haven’t any plans to support WooCommerce in core at this time.

    Regarding “WC breaks Achievements”: there’s definitely some problem. I have created a bug report at https://github.com/paulgibbs/achievements/issues/101 and I am reaching out to WooThemes to figure out what the issue is and see who needs to fix what 🙂

    Woo have confirmed and are investigating; I think we’ve agreed it’s their problem to fix, so once I know which version of WooCommerce will contain the relevant fix, I’ll update here.

    Well, I wish they’d hurry up 🙂
    Can’t wait to use this plugin and see what people think

    Is there a fix for this?

    Also, why no love for WooCommerce? Are you a WPEC dev as well?

    I just think it’s kind of strange that you only hook into WPEC.

    Unsure, I went with BadgeOS myself, for my site achievement stuff. Check it out in comparison.

    I don’t know. I’ll ping a friend I have at Woo and ask them to update us here.

    No, I don’t work on WPEC or WooCommerce — you can see my work here http://profiles.wordpress.org/DJPaul

    I haven’t decided if I want to support two e-commerce plugins built into Achievements, and it’d be almost impossible to remove support for a plugin from Achievements without annoying people, so I’m very careful about which plugins to add support for.

    Keep an eye on https://github.com/paulgibbs/achievements/issues/101 and https://github.com/woothemes/woocommerce/issues/3149 — hopefully someone from Woo will let us know what’s going on.

    You put a fix in the thread you started. Can I put that in my custom functions file to fix the issue? If so, would it cause issues when/if Woo fixes the issue themselves?

    I looked at BadgeOS and it seems really neat for large scale operations. I’m torn between Achievements and BadgeOS though neither do exactly what I had hoped for.

    Horses for courses, I guess.
    Unsure whether I’d say BadgeOS is just for large scale operations. My relationship hobby site isn’t large scale and adds to the community feel by the awards aspect.
    You can check out what I’ve done ‘badge-wise’ at http://www.geekandjock.com/badges-awards-achievements if you like. Maybe that might give you a small scale view 🙂

    I like what you’ve done badge-wise.

    I was hoping to have something that would integrate with Woo, BuddyPress, and other site stuff like Achievements does. I tried WPEC but that did not go well at all. So now, back to Woo and BadgeOS I guess.

    It does indeed integrate with Buddypress using their BadgeOS Community plugin that partners with the BadgeOS plugin.
    It’s pretty well Dev Documented too and they’ve got a push on now for other plugin devs to use their extensive plugin hooks i.e. you can hook other plugin triggers to fire off awards.
    At this point, I haven’t seen a WooCommerce hook but it would certainly be doable.

    Why not pop over to both their WP Rep as well as GitHub and ask the question – their support is very responsive. And I’ll lend my voice too since I’m using WooCommerce 🙂
