I want to have a point system on my website but don’t know how.
I know we have a badge system that could show users some rewards and trust level but that’s not want I want. I want to show the actual number of points they have.\
sign in 1 day and you get 1 point.
Make 1 new post, you get 5 points.
Make 1 comment under other’s post, you get 2 points.
Share 1 post to your social media, you get 1 point.
stuff like above…
I checked lots of messages on Discourse meta but unfortunately I couldn’t find the answer. Some people suggest to create a plugin to achieve this, and some people suggest to do more research on Badge system but no one actually gave an answer.
So, to achieve this point system, do I need to create a plugin? Or is there any alternative way to do?
If I’m understanding what you’re after, I’m not sure it would need to be done by a plugin.
If you are good at putting together database queries you might be able to create Badges that are granted based on how many times another Badge has been granted.
