[HELP] Questions About Achievements Plugin & Site Wide Forums

  • orebian



    I’m using WordPress 3.3.2, BuddyPress 1.5.5 and BuddyBoss template.

    I just installed the ‘Achievements 2.3’ and ‘BuddyPress Member Profile Stats’ ( plugins today. I faced some challenges in displaying the # of forum topics and posts.

    Here are my questions. For Achievements 2.3, under Event -> Forums

    The user creates a new group forum topic.
    The user deletes a group forum post.
    The user deletes a group forum topic.
    The user modifies a group forum post.
    The user modifies a group forum topic.
    The user replies to a group forum topic.

    Q1. May I know these options are for ‘Site Wide Forums’ or ‘Forums for Groups’?

    Q2. I’m using ‘Site Wide Forums’. I wanted an Event where when user creates a new topic, they will be rewarded auto with an ‘Achievement’. Is that possible?

    Q3. May I know how can I make the # of forum topics and posts display? Right now, under Dashboard -> BuddyPress -> Pages, I need to leave the ‘Discussion Forums’ to -None- in order for my ‘Site Wide Forums’ to work properly.

    Please help. I wanted to launch my social site asap but all these technical issues are causing me headache.

    Let me know if you need the ftp details of my site. I can send it over.

    Appreciate if you can help.

    Thank you!

    hi @djpaul

    Can you help me out with this?

    I installed Achievements 2.3 plugin on my site and would like to know how to have a right sidebar at my Achievements Directory page? Currently the page is full-width.

    I’d like to place the Achievements Leaderboard, Unlocked, Locked, n score on the right sidebar. What code should I place at my childtheme?

    Please help.

    Thank you.

    I’m not spending time building CSS/HTML for you, but the templates you need to edit are in the /achievements/templates/ plugin folder. Copy the directory inside the /achievements/templates/ folder into your theme, and edit those files.

    The directory template is the ‘index.php’ file in the achievements subfolder above.



    Hello @djpaul

    Thank you for the reply. I’ve solved that issue.

    May I know is it possible to ‘reset’ the score for Achievements leaderboard? How to reset the # to 0? I was testing a few achievements on my side…

    I tried to delete the achievement I’ve created, but the Leaderboard score still appeared :(

    Please advice.

    You have to do this directly in the database. Go into the wp_usermeta table, and look for meta_key of something like ‘dpa_points’ or ‘achievements_points’. Find the user_id that you want to change, and edit the meta_value column.

    Or, create an achievement with negative points (i.e. how many you want to get rid of). Then award yourself it, then delete the achievement.
