It was necessary to remove the plugin. After installing the posts are no longer maintained. You need to clean up the bugs.

Hi i just bought this! one thing i overlooked is that there is no chieve for sharing the content (social, fb like, google+ twitter etc)

would there be a way to do this or will it be included in a upcoming update?

im currently using facebook seo comments

DigitalBuilder

Hello,

Without being able to view the code we will not be able to tell if WPAchievements will be able to support the plugins.

We will speak with the authors of the two plugins and find out if we can support them, if we can then we will happily add support for them in the next update.

As soon as we have heard from the authors we will reply to this comment let you know about our findings.

Thanks for the amazing plugin!!!

I am getting the following error when trying to add an Achievement :

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /name/name/name/name.us/name/wp-content/plugins/wpachievements/wpachievements_setup.php on line 131

Fixed the problem. What do I do to write on Russian (the plug-in does not want to accept it) ?

I’ve had this since day 1 of release, thanks again for a great plugin

DigitalBuilder

Thank you for your kind words, we are glad you like it.

Feel free to leave a rating :-)

mriexinger

you’ve had my five star rating since the beginning :)

Is there a way for tighter integration with the Woo Points & Rewards extension.

The current integration is leaving 2 points systems with 2 separate values (i.e I have 1 point for via WP Achieve and 3 from Woo my total should be 4 points that I can use with the Woo system and my dashboard only shows 1).

It would be nice if the points users earn via the Woo Points & Rewards extension would apply to the WP Achievements points and vice versa.

Additionally it would be great if a trigger for achievements could be added for “earning x number of points” or “earning x number of achievements”.

DigitalBuilder

Hello, Thank you for your request but at the moment we feel that the way that WPAchievments is integrated with Woo Points & Rewards is the best way.

As the points that Woo Points & Rewards uses have a monetary value and can be exchanged for discounts on products, we want to make sure that the only way that WPAchevements interacts with it is via achievements so that the admin has strict control over the points given to users.

With regards to your request for the two additional triggers: We will try to add these to a future update.

CreativeCollaborations

Exchanging points for monetary value (ie. purchase a product with points) is consistently being asked for from many of my clients. It appears that it’s the only thing missing.

If that ever becomes available I’ll start sending those clients your way. :)

DigitalBuilder

Hello,

Currently it is possible to award monetary points for each achievement when you use “Woo Points & Rewards”.

If it is something that is in demand then we will consider enabling all WPAchievements points to be converted into monetary points when you use Woo Points & Rewards. However the user would have to be careful on how they setup WPAchievements as some points are easy to gain and could result in people gaining a huge amount of points quickly.

Hi! Great Plugin! I’d like, though, to change the width of the achievements page to best fit my theme. How can I do it? Thanks!

DigitalBuilder

Hello,

Thank you for your purchase.

The css for the achievement page can be found in “wpachievements/css/style.css”.

To change the width you should modify the following css ID’s:

achievements_list_holder

achievements_list_hold

achievements_list_hold_side

Hello,

1. This is only supported via “BuddyStream”.

2. WPAchievements does not post anything to Facebook other than achievements and ranks.

3. WPAchievements does not currently detect the “Like” of a post.

Question Answers: Q1. Currently the only way that Twitter and Google+ are supported are via “BuddyStream”, but this only awards points when a user first syncs their social account.

Q2. WPAchievements can award points and achievements for all the events that are used in “WPSocialStreamer Plus” and “WPSS Arcade Extension”. However it is not directly integrated with either of the two plugins.

thnx for the infos :) also, do you know if they answer on emails at exells.com? i sent a email on 31/05/2013 and another 2-3 days ago and they didn’t answer me. I sent another today and an email on myarcadeplugin.com. i hope that i will get an answer.

DigitalBuilder

Hello,

We have no association with the websites that you have mentioned so I cannot answer questions about how or when they answer emails.

I’m thinking of purchasing this plugin. I’ve been a great fan of free plugin Cubepoints as it has similar points system. But in my experience, the paid version like yours is always the best option as I want to make sure it works with the latest WP version.

What I’m trying to do with my site is relatively simple (no fancy stuff so I can avoid as little errors as possible):

1) to have Achievement points/score for every posts read

2) We would really like our member to only able to read a post ONE WEEK after reading another post (since we are providing a Weekly goal post); since we can’t really achieve this, then receiving a certain Achievement rank/score would enable that Week 2 post to be open is certainly the best alternative

3) able to show Achievements/Ranks score on the sidebar via Widget

Can your plugin do all of 3 above with the latest WP version?

DigitalBuilder

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in WPAchievements.

Here are the answers to your questions:

1) The current version of WPAchievements can give points to the user every time they view a post but the user can view the same post multiple times and still get points. This is fixed in the new version that will be released within the next 48 hours as users will only get points once per post.

2) This can be done easily with our Content Lock system… You simple create a new rank for each post and ensure that when they read a post they receive enough points to gain the rank for the new post.

3) WPAchievements comes with multiple widgets which allow you to display the users achievements, rank and also an achievements leaderboard.

So far, this plugin is very nice. I am especially impressed with the ongoing development. One feature request:

Can you make it possible for Admins to award achievements without a defined trigger?

Thanks, and keep up the great work!

Hello,

The next update for WPAchievements is currently in the testing phase but we will certainly look at adding the feature you have requested to a future update.

Thank you for your kind words, and please feel free to leave a rating. :)

I’m interested in purchasing this plugin.

Is there a way I can change the “Points” table to update a specific table in my database? I have a site where users earn points, and I’d like those points to be in the same table.

I used CubePoints in the past, and had modified their plugin to run the SQL queries I needed.

Is there a way I can do this with your plugin? Better yet, is there a way to override your plugin’s point updating system in my theme functions (or a custom plugin of my own), so when I download future updates of your plugin, my work isn’t undone?

This is my main selling point. If it’s possible I’m sold, if not, I’ll probably have to keep looking.

Thanks.

DigitalBuilder

Hello,

Yes in the past couple of updates we have added multiple hooks that you should be able to use to ensure that points are added to the table of your choosing, however WPAchievements will still need to use its default database tables as well.

My apologies for not informing you sooner.

thedan1984

It says you do support through your forum, but registration doesn’t appear to be enabled.

I want to know what file(s) I need to edit for the plugin to use my own custom point system so users who have points on my site can earn achievements/ranks, and when they do earn achievements, it’ll update my custom table instead of the Achievements default.

Thanks

Having an issue with this ridiculously, outrageously awesome, my favorite buy out of the 201 purchases on Envato to date (This plugin i’m talking about!) working with Visual Composer. It’s a fatal error, I signed up for the support forums late last night, but just wanted to bring it to the attention here of anyone else who may be having the issue?

Update adding onto this:

When I say working with, I mean being activated at the same time.

PS: With all the updates you’re adding onto the product, you should ask for an increase from Envato, my one friend got one when he asked and he got a $2 bump I think (in price)

i’m not requesting support, I’ve already registered, I was just seeing if anyone else is having the same issue at all, and to have others aware of the issue in case it happens in the future.

DigitalBuilder

Hello,

If you are having a problem with the plugin then please ask for support and get the issue fixed.

This way it will fixed for you and anyone else having the same issue.

Thank you.

AMAZING SUPPORT AND EVEN BETTER PLUGIN! 5 stars ( I would rate it even higher but it is not possible :)

Thank you!

DigitalBuilder

Thank you very much for your kind words, we are glad that you enjoy this plugin.

I was wondering if this achievement plugin allows the following for woocommerce:

- Achievements based on amount of purchases done (1, 5, 10, etc) - Achievements based on amount spent on purchases (5$, 10$, etc)

Final questions

Can i assign custom achievements to a user manually? Will he receive notification for such achievements once he logs on the website or it just adds up without notification (assuming he’s offline).

Looking forward to buy this, great job so far!

DigitalBuilder

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in WPAchievements.

The answer to your questions are:

1. You can award achievements based on the number of times a user completes the checkout process but not on the number of individual items purchased during the check out process.

2. Currently you cannot award achievements on the amount spent during the checkout process, however this is an interesting idea and we will look into the possibility of adding it to the next update.

3. You can manually award achievements to users and the user will be notified when they next log on to the website. However in the current version of WPAchievements you can only create achievements based off actions, such as adding comments, making purchases etc.

We do plan on adding the ability to create custom “non-action” based achievements, for example: “xx points for being a cool guy”; but we do not know if that will be added in the next update or a future one.

Default-user

I appreciate your comprehensive reply on all my questions. I’ll be purchasing this plugin for sure.

On topic 2. could be either amount based on a single checkout or an amount accomulated on purchases done through time.

Hi,

I have a couple of questions: 1. can I use the plugin in order to give a user (a contributor) achievements based on posts he publishes, number of comments he recieves etc? 2. Can I put the badges in the each author’s individual page? Also, Can he then share each badge through facebook, tweeter etc? 3. I will need ti translate the plugin to hebrew. Is it ready to be translated or should this be a problem? 4. Can you maybe give a link to a site using your plugin?

Thanks a lot!

Hi, Thanks again. Do you have an estimation when the update should arrive? Also, if I purchae the plugin in the meanwhile, will it be able to get support from you regarding the facebook application setup? This looks like the main obstacle for me now, since I do not know how to set up the application myself… Perhaps you can give the guidelines so that each customer, even if he’s not a facebook developer, can do it himself? Thanks, Idan

DigitalBuilder

Hello,

We hope to have the new update released by the end of the week.

Also we could provide guidance on how to set-up a Facebook application, however we would recommend waiting until the new update is released as it will make things a lot easier for your and we will also ensure RTL is better supported so you will hopefully have no issues to deal with.

Default-user

That sounds great! I will wait for the update. Thanks for all the assistance.

Hi I am very interested in this plug-in but I would like to confirm that it suits my needs. I would like to have custom medal images on the users WP profile that I create and within the dashboard I can just edit a user and tick each medal this user should have displayed.

Something like a Medal box is what I would like to see – I can edit the layout etc afterwards but I need the basic functionality. Thanks.

DigitalBuilder

Hello,

WPAchievements does not provide a user profile page, just the shortcodes to show users achievements/badges and their rank information. So you would have to either create your own user profile page or use another plugin to create one for you.

Default-user

I don’t suppose you could recommend a plug-in that this would work well with. Sounds like just what I need.

DigitalBuilder

Hello,

I do not know of any plugin’s that only add profile pages, however plugins such as BuddyPress provide them.

You could could just modify your theme to use the author.php file, information here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Author_Templates

Blogscol Purchased

The plugin is not publishing the achievements on Facebook, according to Facebook Insights is published 6 times of over 30 times was to publish.

DigitalBuilder

Thank you for the feedback.

We have a new update planned to be released in the next few days that includes improved Facebook handling.
