In order to award / deduct points from your users for interacting with your WordPress website, we need to “hook” into the appropriate instance in WordPress. There is a “Hook” for each instance that myCRED supports like logging in, commenting or publishing a post.

Here you can find a list of all currently built-in hooks in myCRED:
