BadgeOS Invite Codes Add-on


This add-on plugin to BadgeOS and BuddyPress automatically joins a user to one or more BuddyPress groups when they use a corresponding Invite Code upon joining your site.

Note: You will need the free BadgeOS plugin™ (version 1.2 or higher) and the BuddyPress plugin v1.7 or higher installed to use this plugin.

BadgeOS™ turns your WordPress site into an achievement and badging system. Use the BadgeOS Invite Code plugin in conjunction with the BadgeOS Community Add-on, and badges based on Group membership can be awarded to users as soon as they join your site with a valid Invite Code.
