Had anyone come across developing Member badges in Expressionengine?

I am developing a site, when a member do such activities such as

  • Creating Entry
  • Leaving Ratings
  • Leaving Comments
  • Making 10x comments
  • etc

and they get awarded a badge.

Plugins I am using

  • User (Solspace)
  • Credits (Dev Demon)

I need some guidance. If no such plugins available, is there any other alternative I could develop with.

Many thanks D

Never done that but there are a few Member custom profile options available, see http://ellislab.com/expressionengine/user-guide/modules/member/index.html#id6

That would cover, for each member, getting

  • Total entries
  • Total comments
  • Total forums posts
  • Total forum topics

You could grab those values and do somthing like:

    {if total_entries < 10}Newbie user{/if}
    {if total_entries >= 10 AND total_entries < 50}Advanced user{/if}
    {if total_entries >= 50}Super user{/if}
  • Looks like a good idea, will let you know how it goes. Jan 26, 2014 at 23:13
