My client is looking for a ranking system similar to a forum. As your post count goes up, your "title" changes. I think Buddypress offers something along these lines but we're at the end stage and he doesn't want to take the extra time to let me convert it to a buddypress system. Are there other plugins that can do this? Or maybe someone can suggest some code to use with User Role Editor?

It would help if you can give some concrete examples of what you want to see in the title. – MikeSchinkel Feb 11 '11 at 15:39
@MikeSchinkel Changed title. – Lynne Feb 11 '11 at 15:43
Thanks, but I meant for you to add examples in your question about what exactly you want the titles in your client's site to look like. – MikeSchinkel Feb 11 '11 at 16:04

I know i have something like that and I'll post it as soon as i get home.


Bit late I know , but since i jumped a head and said i have something like that, and i just couldn't find it i wrote something from scratch.

Bainternet User Ranks

enter image description here

After you install and activate, configre it a bit and you can use it like this:

<?php $baur_plugin = new baur_Plugin();
$user_rank = $baur_plugin->ba_get_user_points($user_id,true);
echo "title: ". $user_rank['title'] . "Points: " . $user_rank['points'];?>
