Description

Awards Factory - Hand out awards to site users for different actions, overall activity or just as a gift.

Each award is represented by a medal and optionally a reason for that award. Awards are granted either on triggers like: Registered (and each subsequent year), number of forum posts, and birthdays; and manually one at a time or with the mass award function.

To use the three triggers available for Awards Factory, it must be integrated with Community Builder; then the medals awarded for each trigger can be chosen from the CB plugin menus.
Another plugin enables a tab with the user’s awards where he can view the awards received and in what number.

The admin can create an unlimited number of medals, each medal has a Name, Picture, Description and Reason. Medals can be published and unpublished, edited or deleted.

Administrator settings include:

  • Pagination settings - you can choose how many items to display on pages
  • Date formatting - adjust the date format specific to your location
  • Real name or Joomla Username display - for modules and profiles
  • Email notifications for awards - email users when they receive a new award
  • Show award reason - display the reason for the award on the frontend
  • On the user CB profile you can choose whether to group awards and display a counter for how many times the user received that award, or just display them individually
  • Custom introductory text on the medals overview page
  • Enable Community Builder Integration

In the Medals Overview page, Users can view a list with all the medals awarded and under each medal the users who received that medal are found, with a link to their profile where other awards can also be viewed.

For additional exposure, three modules are available:

  • My Latest Awards - latest awards received by the current user
  • Most Awarded - users with the most awards on the site
  • Latest Awards - latest awards issued on the site

For each module the number of awards/users shown can be configured. 

Requirements:

  • Joomla 2.5.x or J! 1.7.x/1.6.x

____________________________________________

NOTE: for Joomla 3.x this product is discontinued at this moment, since it was integrated into SOCIAL Factory.
