Custom links for badges


(Tobias Eigen) #1

I’d like to be able to specify a custom link for my custom badges. For example I have a badge for resource contributors, and I’d like the badge to link to a page (over on WordPress) listing resources added by the user. I also list affiliated organizations in a member directory, and would like to link to that directly through their user card and user profile. I can see other usages for example for linking to a user’s blog or social media profiles etc.

The simplest implementation methinks would be to specify user custom fields in the badge settings, both for awarding badges and for sourcing the link. These fields would be populated via SSO.

Another simple implementation might be to build URLs using the username, e.g.

http://foo.com/resources/%username%
