PeepSo-BadgeOS Integration Plugin Is Out!

The PeepSoBadgeOS Integration is a 3rd Party plugin which brings a gamification system to PeepSo that awards achievement badges for community engagement.

The badges are displayed in users’ profiles and a corresponding activity post is published on the PeepSo stream. Users who earn a badge will also receive a notification.

The Plugin not only displays badges for the default activities in BadgeOS. It also extends BadgeOS’s possibilities by adding PeepSo Community Engagement Actions. Users can earn badges by performing activities in your community.

The actions that generate badges depend on the PeepSo plugins you have installed and activated. Available actions are divided into groups, with each group name corresponding to the PeepSo plugin needed:

  • Admin Approves User Account

Front End:

User Profile and Navigation

The badges show in user profiles under the Badges submenu which is below the user profile cover. There are three menu items and three ways for users to view their badges:

  • Through a link on the PeepSo toolbar under Profile > Badges. (This link can be disabled in the back end.)
  • Through a link in the PeepSo Profile Widget > Badges. (This link can also be disabled in the back end.)
  • And through a link in the User Profile under the cover.

Activity Stream Posts

Whenever a user earns a badge, a corresponding post is created in the PeepSo community. It’s like an announcement to the whole community that a user has just earned a badge.

Users also receive a notification that lets them know they’ve earned a new badge. (We wanted to make sure they didn’t miss it.)

I started my journey with open source nearly a decade ago as a simple support guy. Joomla! was my first encounter with the world of Open Source. After that period of my life got phased out I fell in love with WordPress and never left. I have been both lucky and at the same time I worked my ass off to get to where I am right now. Free time, if I have any, is usually spent with my wife and / or travel around South-East Asia. Even when I'm supposed to be on a little vacation, not a day goes by when I don't check up on PeepSo. So far visited or lived in: Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Hungary, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, China, Japan, Maldives, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Norway, Germany, Scotland, England and more... Whenever possible, I jump on my Ducati Monster and just ride.
