This is a collection of modules that make use of User Points module API.

If you created a module that uses the Userpoints API and it does not have its own project, please contribute it by submitting an issue and attaching a tar.gz of the .info and .module files you created. Please describe what your module does in a bit of detail.

You can use other modules here as a starting point or sample for what can be achieved by userpoints.

Drupal 6

All modules listed below are available unless noted otherwise. They are written and contributed by various people and hence can be of various quality, maturity and maintainership levels.

Drupal 7

WARNING: Although reported as such when trying to install, not all modules which are part of the 7.x-1.x-dev release have been ported to Drupal 7 yet. Consult the list below and the issue queue before reporting bugs about this. See #1244792: In .info files, "core=" values are overridden by packaging scripts
. You can also get a git checkout of the project instead, which will not have this bug.

Several modules have moved to Userpoints Nodes and Comments or have been deprecated in favor of the much improved Rules integration which is part of the main Userpoints project.

However, the modules which are available have been tested and can be considered working and maintained.

Some modules that were only available for 5.x are not listed anymore. Help is welcome porting them to 6.x and others to 7.x.

You can read a tutorial and some examples of how to write modules that integrate with userpointshere.

Other modules

If you integrate Userpoints with other modules that have their own project, please contact the maintainers to list your module above.
