This plugin isn’t very intuitive, and there isn’t any documentation available. For example, where are people supposed to see their balance? How are they supposed to donate points to each other once that module is active?

It’s a great plugin with some issues: Test Environment:Wordpress 3.9.2+the twentyfourteen theme,without any other plugins. 1. I18n: 1.1 Warning: _() expects exactly 1 parameter, 2 given in xxx\wp-content\plugins\cubepoints\modules\donate\donate.php on line 165 it should be: 'somethingWentWrongText' => __('Oops, something went wrong! Please try again later.', 'cp'); 1.2 the backup.php file should add some ,'cp'to _(); 1.3 line 80 of post_authors_points.php should be: _e('Comment on your post was removed','cp'); and so on; 2. BUGS? 2.1 the ajax user search form on the wp-admin/admin.php?page=cp_admin_add_points page may be have some issue; 2.2 if I activate the Paid content module and set the ‘Multiply points earned by’ to 2, when some user pay for a post need to pay 10, Cubepoints will deduct 20 points from the user’s account. 3.for better I18n: /** * Update Cubepoints database for better i18n support * @author suifengtec * @since 2014.09.09 */ add_action('init','cwp_update_cubepoints_db_for_i18n'); function cwp_update_cubepoints_db_for_i18n(){ if(get_option('wp_cp_has_be_updated')) return; global $wpdb; $charset_collate = ''; if ( ! emptyempty( $wpdb->charset ) ) { $charset_collate = "DEFAULT CHARACTER SET {$wpdb->charset}"; } if ( ! emptyempty( $wpdb->collate ) ) { $charset_collate .= " COLLATE {$wpdb->collate}"; } $charset_sql="ALTER TABLE <code>{$wpdb->prefix}cp</code> DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci"; $charset_done=$wpdb->query($charset_sql); //latin1_swedish_ci $type_sql="ALTER TABLE <code>{$wpdb->prefix}cp</code> CHANGE <code>type</code> <code>type</code> VARCHAR(256) CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL;"; $type_done=$wpdb->query($type_sql); //latin1_swedish_ci $data_sql="ALTER TABLE <code>{$wpdb->prefix}cp</code> CHANGE <code>data</code> <code>data</code> TEXT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL;"; $data_done=$wpdb->query($data_sql); if($charset_done&&$type_done&&$data_done) update_option('wp_cp_has_be_updated',true); } detail:CubePoints mysql charset issue
