1.8.0 Released

Yesterday, I released version 1.8.0. This was a feature release, and includes a lot of internal improvements in addition to the following:


  • You can display the points of the current post’s author using the shortcode by supplying post_author as the value of the user_id attribute, like this: .
  • You can now award points to post authors for comments they receive with the Comment Received points hook.
  • You can now display a user’s rank with the [wordpoints_user_rank] shortcode.

The next big release will be 1.9.0, with no major new features planned so far. If you have some suggestions, let us know!

About J.D. Grimes

J.D. is the creator of WordPoints. In addition to web development, he also enjoys nature photography. The most important thing about him, though, is that Jesus Christ died for him to pay for his sins. He looks forward to meeting Jesus face to face in heaven one day, and he hopes he'll see you there, too.
