[ This plugin was being debugged for 2 months. It was tested and is being used on a few live sites. ]

After enabling the plugin you will see points and ranks being displayed for each user below their profile icon:

as well as on the user listings:

Those points and ranks represent the number of points user got for his activity on your site. You can set how many points user gets (or looses) for certain actions. You can also set how many points user has to get to go higher in ranks, and what the name of the rank is.



There's also an action available from the user's submenu. Admin can add or remove points for a given user thanks to this action:

There's also a history of points, showing what user got his points for and showing a sum of user's karma funds.


This is a demo version of the plugin. In demo version, users have only two ranks - Regular (for 0 points) and Rookie (for 150 points). You can view description and buy the full version of this plugin on this page.

There are also a commercial extensions available:

  • gift shop (users get karma funds when getting karma points, and can spend them on giving gifts to other users)
  • karma-based access rights




  • copy to mod folder and enable
  • run the "Update user points" from the plugin settings*
  • in case any problems occur, move the plugin to the bottom of the plugin list
  • note - karma plugin will start adding points for action after installation. This means that after installing the plugin everyone will have 0 points.
