Welcome to the WordPoints user guide! This guide will help you get the most of WordPoints by explaining its basic usage, and also covering some more-advanced topics. (If you are a developer, you will want to read the Developer Guide also.)
This guide is organized according to the plugin’s components, and you’ll find a section for each component below. Each section provides links to documentation of that component’s settings, shortcodes, and widgets, as well as tutorials on its use.
If you are just getting started, check out our step-by-step setup guide.
The Points component is the main component of WordPoints, and is activated by default. It lets you create one or more points systems for your site.
- Creating a Type of Points
- Changing a Points Type’s Settings
- Awarding Points for User Actions
- Manually editing a user’s points
- Legacy: Points Hooks
The Ranks component was added in version 1.7.0. It lets you create ranks that your users are assigned to based on how many points they have.
