1.8 Guide – Ranks

Home / Blog / 1.8 Guide – Ranks


As of version 1.8, ranks can be set to be assigned to users manually, just like badges. This means that you will need to manually change your users rank as myCred will take no action. To do this, simply edit the user in question in the admin area and select the rank you want to assign them.

While in manual mode point values would have no use, the fields will still be available when editing / adding a rank, just in case.

Remember that if you use manual mode and then switch to base ranks on a users balance, you will need to edit each rank and enter a point value before updating your settings!

Manually assigned ranks can not produce a rank progress, in case you are using a rank progress bar.

For Developers

For those who wish to whitelabel the myCred plugin, a new MYCRED_RANK_KEY constant is available that lets you change the Rank post type.

1.8 also introduces an updated myCred_Rank object, which no longer just holds rank details but also handles assignments.

  1. Could I have point based ranks for users but assign admins manually?…I don’t want admins on leaderboard, bit still want to assign them ranks.

  2. Can the topic be published based on the rank of users?
    So the topic of a first-rate person can be automatically converted to draft? Could someone who is rising to the second level have the authority to open a topic? and can he make it necessary to stay 2 levels in order to avoid that person’s draft?

    Sorry my bad English. Thanks..

  3. Hi Gabriel, do you plan to integrate the option – to give different point per rank.

    means the higher the rank – > the higher the points a user get ?

    standard rank = 1 point per published post
    rank 1 = 1,5 points per published post
    rank 2 = 2points per published post

    i hope i explained it clearly 😀


  4. I’m really looking forward to this release. Thank you for building this. It is helping me learn more about wordpress and coding also. Thank you. This is going to be the best Update Ever I think.
