You can show Badges in user profile headers. Just turn 'Show user badges in profile header?' in WP Admin > Ultimate Member > Settings > Extensions > myCRED .

User Ranking

myCRED also offers users ranking based on their total accumulated- or their current balance. To reward your users with total or current points based ranks, you need to activate myCRED's  Ranks add-on via admin page > myCRED > Add-ons.

Once the add-on is activated, navigate to the myCRED > Settings page and click on the “Ranks” title in the list. Set what features you want to enable for each rank.

Click the Edit link under the specific rank you want to modify.

Limit the number of rewards/charges on specific action

You can manage which specific actions are to be rewarded or charged on by adding the specific hook on WP admin > myCRED > Settings > Hooks. Once a specific hook is added, you can limit the points to be rewarded/charged in total, per week/month/year or no limit at all.


The Notifications add-on will display popup notifications to inform the users when they have earned/spent or lost points on your website. To activate this add-on, please navigate to the wp-admin page > myCRED > Add-ons and click on Activate button under 'Notifications'.
