Support » Plugin: BadgeOS » Show message when deblocking badges

  • Resolved yvesf3



    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?

    Hello Michael,

    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.
