As we were working on a client project for WordPress we came across the Gamipress suite of gamification plugins. They allowed us the functionality we were after for some of the sites we were working on, hence we struck an agreement with the owners to promote their plugins as an affiliate, please use our link to find out more about the DIY options from Gamipress for WordPress.
What we like about the plugin, is that some of the core functionality to create points, achievements and ranks comes completely free. It integrates nicely with several other known WordPress plugins such as LearnDash, Woocommerce and Buddypress to name only a few.
The suite of paid add-ons really makes the options available to you as a gamification designer much more interesting. Here is the current list of additional game mechanics available to you:
- Progress bars
- Progression tracking
- Purchase Points
- Restrict content
- Social sharing
