    Hi again. (Last question, I promise!)

    Can I set a maximum number of points a user can earn? I only want my users to be able to earn 1,000 points all time. In other words, once they reach 1,000 points, they cannot earn any more even if they redeem points to drop below 1,000.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Thanks again…as always. We’re opening up our library’s Summer Reading program tomorrow, and everyone is very excited. I couldn’t have done it without this plugin!

    (Do you have a way to donate some funds to your cause?)



    You can use the mycred_add filter to enforce a max.
    Here is an example:

    add_filter( 'mycred_add', 'mycred_pro_user_max', 999, 3 );
    function mycred_pro_user_max( $reply, $request, $mycred ) {
    	// Ignore if allready declined
    	if ( $reply === false ) return $reply;
    	extract( $request );
    	// Ignore deductions
    	if ( $amount < $mycred->zero() ) return $reply;
    	// Get uses balance
    	$balance = $mycred->get_users_balance( $user_id, $type );
    	// Maximum
    	$max = 1000;
    	// Check if we already reched max
    	if ( $balance >= $max ) return false;
    	// Else check if adding this up will exceed max
    	if ( $balance + $amount >= 1000 ) return false;
    	// all else return default
    	return $reply;

    Just add the code snippet to your themes functions.php file and change the max amount to a number that works for you and you are set.

    You can “donate” by purchasing tokens if you do not find anything you want in the store. You can purchase token by clicking on the array in the blue menu on the top right corner of the screen and selecting “Buy Tokens” in the dropdown menu.


    Thanks again. Just purchased some tokens as a thanks.


    Hi ,
    what of if you want minimum balance to be zero, hence no user should have negative point

    Hello, I would like to refresh the topic a bit. How to limit the number of points scored for a given user? Where can I put a username or id in the code to limit earnings? So that I can get a maximum of e.g. 600 points?
