I have had a few questions recently about what exactly will be in the next release of my Achievements plugin for BuddyPress, so thought I’d post the list here.
- Allow site admins to create custom Achievements via front-end – this includes specifying name/description/points and avatar (via WordPress media gallery). And, of course, what site event to hook it into (i.e. to fire on new user registration, etc).
- Achievements can also be granted to a specific user, to mimic a “badge” – i.e. “this month’s top contributor” or “competition winner.”
- Groups Directory, like regular BuddyPress Members/Groups Directory. Lists each of the Achievements, and by going into each, you can see who has “unlocked” that Achievement.
- A new area on a user’s profile page to show which Achievements they have unlocked.
Are there any features you’d like to see in sequential releases?
