I run a multiple author platform where Cubepoints is a major part of its point and ranking system.
I have added a custom category taxonomy called
highlight and it contains two items:
Whenever an excellent post is submitted, an editor check it as
spotlight - both of which gives the article a lot of exposure on the site. If the users article is highlighted, they receives a custom amount of extra points. The problem is that the editors are forced to add these points manually by browsing to Cubepoints / Add Points.
This is an exhausting process to do manually. How can I make this work automatically? This means that if
featured is checked for the custom taxonomy (highlight), then the user gets 30 points with the description "Your article has been featured", and if
spotlight is selected, they receive 50 points with a similar form of description.
Unfortunately, the Cubepoints API documentation is noneexistent, however, I good tutorial was recently written by a user.
