    Hello Paul,

    I’m still trying to fully understand your plugin and was hoping you could clarify a couple of points?

    – Similar to this page, I don’t use BuddyPress but would like to have awards/achievements/badges shown in the native WordPress Author pages, perhaps displayed in a sidebar widget and/or as small badges under the users bio (example of my site’s author page: http://www.livefreedietravelling.com/author/pthomson87/). Is this possible?

    – How do you get the leaderboard to display? Example – http://challengebeta.mypcls.org/leaderboard/

    – Can authors gain different points by having their posts approved and published in different categories? Ie. 5 points for a post in the ‘Blog’ category, 20 points for having a post approved in the ‘travel’ category? – If not is this a feature you would consider adding in future releases?

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Hi

    Q2: this isn’t a core part of the plugin, yet. It’s custom built for that site.
    Q3: not possible now, but want to do it for a future release (long term, not soon).

    Q1:
    As you may have seen, if BuddyPress isn’t active, the plugin adds a new subpage on the author archive URL. In terms of displaying the content, it’s fairly easy to add some custom code to any template… unfortunately I’ve not yet had chance to document the new template loops, so you’d need to dive into the templates and figure it out.

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for getting back to me with this.

    Did you have any plans on integrating a widget to show the authors current awards/achievements which could be displayed on the sidebar of each post?

    Also, the new ‘subpage’ that is added to the author archive, how do I find this?

    If my URL structure is: http://www.livefreedietravelling.com/author/paul/ how would I access the ‘subpage’?

    I will wait until documentation of the new template loops are out before I go playing around :-).

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Yes.

    Easiest way for now is if you go to the “Howdy” menu in the Toolbar when you’re logged in, there will be a “My Achievements” link.

    Excellent, thanks Paul
