The plugin works great and is the solution for our website needs of a fully Credit Based system, I ran into an issue of not knowing how to install the plugin correctly being a novice to joomla. Within Hours got the plugin to work and functional.

Please don't mind the negative reviews, I've used this component on every site I've ever built (Joomla 1.5, 2.5 and 3.1.5) and this component hasn't disappointed me once. I love the idea of rewarding community activities with points, as it brings more activity to your site - people love to compete with each other hehe. It simply works out of the box (even the beta version for Joomla 3.1.5) but if you run into problems support is very fast and accurate. Thanks Bernard for an amazing component that's always been essential too my Joomla! sites. Cheers

If you are not able to involve your registered members and wants to encourage them for various activities then this is right component.

There are great rules already built in for std. components.

If you have customised your components and don't know coding much. Don't worry, it is very easy to implement as developer manual is very easy to understand

If you need various modules again you think and they have it.

Even You are on Joomla 1.5. Don't worry, admin will help you.

I ordered Alpha Recommend Pro and had some installation hiccups, Bernard and his team sorted it out although the problem was not with the component but with my MySql version. Thank you for great support and an even greater extension.
Thank you

This is hands down the best point system in the entire JED. Yes Bernard is sometimes too busy to reply to every post of mine, but replies to many and has made a very well made component. I would certainly recommend this to folks wanting a point system.

I see great possibilities for using this component, but unfortunately installation on my web site was unsuccessful. My joomla version is 2.57 Slovenian language, AUP I was installing is ver 1.7.4 and all ended with fatal error and I had to re install everything from backup. So advice to anyone would be.. don't try this without backup.

It works but it doesn't show the alphauserpoint avatar.
What a pity.
Do you have some tips to fix it?
I have joomla 2.5.4 and A.U.P. 1.7.3

Simply doesn't work. Module install went ok, but there seems to be no way to edit your profile from the front-end. Linking to your profile from Kuena (using it's integration) just gives "You are not authorized to view this page" even though I am logged in as super user.

I used this extension a year ago on a school project, and found it extremely satisfying. I've got alot of ideas for new sites where AUP will be the center of user activity.

Never stop supporting this creative masterpiece!=)

Thank you!

Program uses old code and requires registered_globals on. Doesnt work otherwise, plus no support or updates to fix issues.

I installed AUP 1.7.1 on my new Joomla 1.7 website. It literally kicked me out of admin area, when I tried to sync users. After that I couldn't log in to admin, it said:

Fatal error: Using $this when not in object context in /data/web/virtuals/12507/virtual/www/libraries/joomla/plugin/plugin.php on line 102

I saw few more users had the same problem, but no response on AUP forum.
I had no problem with older version, but now, I don't recommend this plugin!!!
Owner's reply

Please, update with latest version to fix issue with sync users. Problem solved from 1.7.2.

Though this component has potential, it could be better. My major issue with it is the integration with Kunena. It will not give points to user who post on any forums that are not open to the public. I have made numerous posts on their forums about this rather major issue, only to be ignored.

i named this the gold extension for a reason because this little bundle of files can give you the power to unleash a full point or monetary exchange system on your website! can you say cha-ching?! so i have tried alphaplug's alpha user points with a clean 1.63 and a clean install of 1.7 and 1.71 with the latest cb and kunena installed. i did have trouble installing the component part of this extension to my addon domain. my php was increased past limit, tried uploading using url and ftp to the addon domain, permissions checked, more than 6000 files allowed and many hack attempts... the SOLUTION? i was able to upload the component with an easy work around: for some reason you cannot upload this component to the website you are putting it on - you have to upload it to a website temp folder of another website and put in the complete url of that temp folder in the upload extension section of the joomla ext manager and download it to the website you want it. my steps - i wanted AUP on my addon domain so i just ftped the com_aup to my top tier domain (different website domain name), went into my addon domain joomla ext manager and uploaded with the (install from url).

DO NOT PASS THIS UP! this beauty is seamless with kunena (of course), jsoc and even CB! what can this do for your community? it gives you the power to create your own community currency or exchange system on your site. you can reward people for adding content to your website or encouraging others to so. however the brilliance of this extension really is in the development - the alphaplug developer(s) have got to be on top of their game to keep this compatible with three or major extensions at the SAME TIME! especially with the myriad of settings that cause problems in kunena for example. for one, you cannot use AUTO DETECT in kunena - alphaplug cannot get a dynamic out of an already dynamic url. you have to set all the kunena detections to your community component - ie cb or jomsocial from the dropdown instead of auto detect. but really, if you are smart you will do whatever you can to download this and harness its great power to make your community rich with rewards!! thank you alphaplug developers for this FREE gold extension!! xx den
