MoolaMojo WordPress Virtual Credits System

We have just released a new free virtual currency & credits system for WordPress – MoolaMojo. The plugin is similar to myCRED but easier to use and integrate.

It can be used to:

  • Reward users virtual points for doing things on your site
  • Sell products, subscriptions or services for virtual credits
  • Sell virtual credits for real money

In its core it’s a simple thing but is extremely powerful and will allow you to extract a lot more value of your user’s interactions.

Integrations with Namaste! LMS, Watu/Pro, and Konnichiwa are coming shortly. And not only this: the integration API of the plugin is so simple, we expect other authors will make it soon as well.

Importing Subscribers in Arigato PRO

Importing subscribers in Arigato PRO is easy but entering field numbers can be a bit confusing. Especially if you have custom fields in the mailing list and the CSV file. This guide will clear it all up.

Note! If your file contains any non-English characters (for example Asian, Cyrillic, any French and Spanish accents etc.), you must encode it in Unicode / UTF-8 format! See how to do it.

Let’s make an example with a mailing list with 3 custom fields:

And a CSV file which doesn’t perfectly match the mailing list:

And when you click on “Import subscribers” in Arigato PRO, this is what you see:

So there are a few problems to deal with here:

  • The CSV file does not contain “Name” column. It contains first name and last name columns and you want the name in your mailing list to contain first and last name.
  • The CSV file has the columns ordered in a way that obviously isn’t the same as the order on the import page.
  • The CSV file contains some columns you don’t need (Client ID, State, ZIp, Phone, Address) and lacks the Age data.

So how to import this? Let’s visually number the columns in the CSV file:

Now things become simpler and we just have to watch at the import page first, find the field we need in the CSV and enter its number. Because “name” is constructed by 2 column, we enter them both with “+”. Here you go:

Let’s explain:

  • Email is column number 7 in the file so we enter it before the comma in the “Email,  Name” field.
  • Name is constructed by columns 2 and 3 so we enter them as “2+3” after the comma. So the “Email, Name” field becomes “7, 2+3. Spaces do not matter.
  • The CSV file does not contain fields for IP address, signup date and age. So we leave these blank.
  • Company is column number 9.
  • Gender is column number 10.

That’s it, import with “Skip first line (column titles) when importing” selected. And we are done:

Group Checkbox Questions in WatuPRO

This feature is available from WatuPRO version 5.4.1 and above.
It lets you include several groups of checkbox answers into one “multiple choice” question.
This lets you structure complicated questions like this:

Such question will be treated just like any regular “multiple choice” question: it can be calculated as a whole or not, it will be counted as one question in all the calculations for percentages, correct/incorrect answers, category based reports, etc. Grouping the checkboxes is a presentation feature, it’s not a change to the logic. If you want to calculate each group as different question, then you obviously don’t need the feature. Simply create several multiple-choice questions.

How does it work

Once you select “Multiple Choices” for question type, the following checkbox will appear and you need to select it:

After you select the checkbox the answers to the questions will receive an additional box where you can enter group number:

In the contents of the question use the {{{group-N}}} variable to mark where you want each group of checkboxes to appear. Replace N with the group number:

This results in the following output:

And after selecting some answers and answering the quiz:

And this is still just a single question! Nice.

Please note that this feature is available only for “Multiple Chocies” questions. It can’t be applied to single choice questions (radio buttons) because if you can select one choice in each group, it’s no longer a single choice but multiple choices.
