This shortcode allows you to create leaderboards that are based on either your users current / total balances or based on events in the log, e.g. a leaderboard showing who gained most points from approved comment or published content.

Available since version 1.3

CSS Styling

// Organized list leaderboards
ol.myCRED-leaderboard { }

// First user row
ol.myCRED-leaderboard li.first { }

// Alternating row
ol.myCRED-leaderboard li.alt { }

// If leaderboard is empty
p.mycred-leaderboard-none { }


Example 1: Show a leaderboard based on balances with the top 10 users.

[mycred_leaderboard number=10]

Example 2: Show bottom 10 users with the lowest balance first.

[mycred_leaderboard number=10 order="ASC"]

Example 3: First show the top 3 users then in a new shortcode we show the next 10 users down the list.

Top 3 Users:
[mycred_leaderboard number=3]

Next 10:
[mycred_leaderboard number=10 offset=3]

Example 4: Show top 3 users without the profile link just showing their display name.

[mycred_leaderboard number=3 template="#%position% %display_name% %cred_f%"]

Example 5: Use HTML in your row template

[mycred_leaderboard number=3]
#%position% <strong>%display_name%</strong>

Example 6: Instead of an organized list, create a table. (requires myCRED 1.1.2)

	[mycred_leaderboard wrap=""]

Example 7: Show a leaderboard for users who have spent most points in your WooCommerce store.

[mycred_leaderboard based_on="woocommerce_payment" order="ASC"]
