Multiple Point Types

In 1.4 myCRED gained support for multiple point types allowing you to setup an unlimited number of point types.

Each point type you create will gain it’s own admin menu where you can view each individual point types log entries, settings and hooks.

Note that multiple point types are not supported by all myCRED add-ons right now.

Add Point Type

To add a new point type, visit the myCRED > Settings page and click on “Multiple Point Types” to toggle your type settings.

Each point type must have a unique key which will be used to store each users balance and to help sort the log according to point type. This key must be unique and only contain letters and underscores. Empty spaces will be converted into underscore when your type is saved.

Setup New Type

Once you have saved your new point type, myCRED will create a new admin menu with the label you set when you created your type.

Before you can start using your new point type, you will need to setup how this point type looks and what it’s called by visiting the Settings page in your new point type menu. You will have access to the point types “Core” settings and the “Management” options for each point type. Change your point types name and setup and save.

New Types

Besides a new menu in your admin area, myCRED will also insert a new inline editor for each point type you have setup, add your users balances to your toolbar, adjust the overview dashboard widget and give you access to the new “myCRED Wallet” widget.

Make sure you re-save all myCRED widgets that you are using when you create your very first new point type. Once myCRED detects more then one point type, all widget will gain a new point type setting where you can select to which point type each widget should be displaying. You can have one widget for each point type if you want!

Support Amongst Features

While myCRED hooks support multiple point types and can be set individually for each point type, other myCRED features have limited or no support right now for multiple point types!
