BadgeOS™ turns your WordPress site into an achievement, badging and engagement management system. Your users complete steps, demonstrate skills and knowledge, and earn digital badges. Easily define the achievements, organize the badge requirements any way you like, and choose from and combine a range of assessment options to determine whether each task or requirement has been achieved.

Create badges and set up the achievements to earn them. Badges are Mozilla OBI compatible and sharable via Credly, the free web service for managing and displaying lifelong credentials.

Can I change the status of the review after approving or denying it for the first time?

Yes, we can change the status of the review in any number of times after approving or denying for the first time but the achievement awarded won’t be revoked.

Do the nominations awarded directly without admin approval just like Submission (auto accepted)?

No, the nominations require admin approval before being awarded.

Does the user nominating the eligible user get an achievement too?

The user who nominates another user won’t earn the achievement but the user that is being nominated earns this achievement

Do you offer services to help us design, build or customize our BadgeOS site?

Yes, we do. We especially enjoy working on innovative projects with forward-thinking teams extending achievement recognition into new environments and surfacing achievement in new ways. See examples and learn more at:

Where should I contribute code back to the project?

Thanks for asking! Please do share back code modifications or enhancements you make for inclusion in BadgeOS core or as add-ons.
