Earlier today, I released version 3.5 of my Achievements for WordPress plugin. If you’ve not heard of the plugin before, it’s a great way to gamify your WordPress site with challenges, badges, and points. I’d like to share some notes on how Achievements for WordPress was designed.
You may be aware that I’m building an Achievements plugin for WordPress. I’ve just posted a status update on the Achievements blog, so check it out if that sounds interesting.
I’m happy to announce the newest release of my Achievements for BuddyPress plugin. Available immediately, Achievements gives your BuddyPress community fresh impetus by promoting and rewarding social interaction with challenges, badges and points.
Be sure to visit its own website at achievementsapp.com. I’ve included an introductory video into the below post, so you can learn about the plugin and see it in action.
The first version of Achievements is almost ready for release. However, BuddyPress 1.2.6, which Achievements requires, isn’t. I will not be releasing Achievements until BuddyPress 1.2.6 has been.
Consider this a private beta period. If you want your hands on Achievements now, and know how to use SVN and how to obtain the BuddyPress 1.2 branch (this will become the 1.2.6 release), leave a reply here and I’ll send you the details.
I apologise for any inconvenience this delay will cause your projects, but I’ll be using this extra time to continue improving Achievements.
