Feature-Requests-big

In this post I will introduce you to the planned changes / improvements that awaits myCred 1.8, but also invite you to come with suggestions for features you would like to see implemented.

Rules:

  • Requests must be submitted as a comment in this post. Requests posted anywhere else like the forums or on social media will not be considered.
  • If you want to show support for a particular request, you can always +1 that request.
  • The feature must be point related and be of use for a large majority of myCred users.
  • Requests for “add support for plugin x, y, z” will not be accepted unless the plugin has more than 100k active installs.
  • No further buyCred Payment Gateways will be added.
  • myCred can not have a withdrawal feature (convert points into real money).
  • You must post your request before April 23rd 2017.
  • You can submit as many ideas you like, but please note that posting it will not guarantee it being included. I will address each request after the closing deadline.

Features that are accepted will be rewarded with myCred Store Tokens.

REST API

Version 1.8 will be the end of line for admin-ajax.php usage in myCred for front-end transactions. Administrative actions will however still use this file. Instead, myCred will have built-in support for the WordPress REST API allowing you to make point related transaction / getting information.

Version 1.8 will also be the last version that will have built-in support for the previous Remote API that myCred provides. As of version 1.9, this remote API will be removed from the code.

buyCRED 2.0

The buyCred add-on will receive a complete re-write in order to provide a smoother checkout experience then it’s current form. Gateways will still work the same way but the checkout process will offer you two options:

  1. A dedicated checkout page which will allow you to style and customize the checkout experience and
  2. A Popup Checkout for quick purchases. This option would have less customization options but would not require a user to be redirected twice to complete a checkout.

Other planned features:

  • Option to order active gateways
  • New design of the gateway settings. Gateways will be activated and deactivated just like Hooks.

Email Notifications 2.0

The Email Notifications add-on is due for an upgrade. The add-on will be completely re-written in order to allow you to setup emails with more options than the current setup. You will have the option to setup emails based on point type(s) and/or references.

Front End Statistics

The Statistics add-on will be re-written to allow you to show statistics on the front end of the website. I am also currently looking for a new chart library since the one myCred currently uses is no longer being developed or supported. If you know of a good open source chart library that is compatible with the GLP 2.0 license, please let me know!

Besides front-end statistics, the add-on will be re-written to allow for better queries and caching of stats.
