I have a question on this plugin, i have made a test with the plugin and create a community badge which is deblocked when commenting 1 post.
So i have created a post comment to see what’s append.
I expected to have a message somewhere that tells me that the badge is unlocked, but nothing… Is it normal or have forgotten something in the configuration ???
When i list all the badges, i see the badge is unlocked.
Yeah, I was looking at the other WP plugin called Achievements which has a great pop-up with social sharing options – pity it had far less triggers.
That said, BadgeOS preently has no such instant alert and pizzazz but they’re supposedly thinking about ways.
I do believe everyone a part of the development is trying to come up with a plan on how to best accomplish a notification system. I don’t disagree that something should be shown. Hopefully soon.
Hi, i have also take a look at achievements plugins, both are great and i am looking which one are the best to start with for my project.
Great to hear that you are thinking about notification.
Other question : is it possible to implement easily a leaderboard of members with badgeOS?
yvesf3, which criteria were you looking at for your leaderboard? overall points or various achievement types?
I look for something like that.
A widget where you can insert, where you want, on a right bar, the top members and they overall points.
I think it is the best because the overall points are based on what the user has achieved.
Maybe have also a link on the members to redirect to his member profile to see all the achievements he has earn.
Well since you’re going based on user points, that’ll make a lot of it easier. I won’t be able to help you with code examples at the moment, but I can with some logic flow.
There is a user meta field named “_badgeos_points” that should hold each user’s total points at any given time. You can do a query on all of the users and grab that meta key/value and then you’ll need to sort the results in descending order.
I’d recommend finding a way to store and update a transient to hold the results. Then in a shortcode or so, you can fetch the transient and display however which way you want.
BadgeOS v1.1 includes earned achievement message on an achievement single page. See the changelog here:
