myCred for BuddyPress Compliments

The myCred for BuddyPress Compliments plugin lets members send each other compliments or eGifts. This add-on for the myCred plugin allows you to connect myCred with BuddyPress Compliments and award users points for giving or receiving compliments.

The integration works and requires the myCred 1.8+, BuddyPress Compliments and the BuddyBoss Platform installed and activated on your website.

BuddyBoss Platform is a fork and forge of the BuddyPress plugin and bbPress plugin. Any plugin developed for the BuddyPress and bbPress plugin is supported by the BuddyBoss Platform.

You do NOT need to install the BuddyPress plugin or the bbPress plugin separately. BuddyBoss Platform acts as a replacement for both the plugins.
