BadgeOS is designed to be a true operating system for turning any WordPress site into an engagement management application.  It’s been built with expandability in mind to allow virtually anything to trigger and recognize achievement.

BadgeOS plans to release a range of Add-Ons to the plugin that enhance core functionality with specialized functions. Check out some of the BadgeOS customizations we’ve already implemented to get a sense for what you might expect, and visit our Developer Resources area to create and share your own Add-ons with the BadgeOS community.

Available Add-Ons:

Community Add-on for BadgeOS:  This BadgeOS Add-on integrates core BadgeOS features into BuddyPress and bbPress, allowing you to reward a wide range of community activities, contributions and involvement. Site members can complete achievements and earn badges by keeping their profile updated, joining and starting groups, participating in discussion forums, connecting with other members, and much more. This add-on also includes the ability to display badges and achievements on user profiles and activity feeds.

BadgeStack Add-On for BadgeOS:  This BadgeOS extension automatically creates all the achievement types and pages needed to quickly set up your very own badging system. Levels, Quest Badges, Quests and Community Badges are all ready upon activating the plugin, as are pages with shortcodes for each achievement type. BadgeStack also includes a set of sample achievements and badges. A great way to bring some instant organization to your site and to get started with badging.

BadgeStack is a proud winner of the “Badges for Lifelong Learning Competition” which is supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, as well as the Gates Foundation and Mozilla, and is administered by co-located HASTAC teams based at the University of California Humanities Research Institute and John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute at Duke University.
