In this video, we’re going to learn how to create a new leaderboard.

This leaderboard will not be the same as the group leaderboard. We’re an only the members within that group will be included in that specific group leader, the leader, or that we will be creating will show all of your members what position they’re currently at. When it comes to rankings, achievements, total points, et cetera. To start, we will go to GamiPress to create our leaderboard. GamiPress there’s a WordPress plugin that lets you incorporate features common in gameplay, such as point systems and competition between your members. So let’s go ahead and hover your mouse on GamiPress.

Then leaderboards from here, you will see all the leaderboards created. Since we’re creating a new leaderboard, click on, add new, then add your leaderboard title. You can then set all of the reports metrics you’d like to show on your leader. You’ll have it. The option to set how many users you’d like to be included in this leaderboard. How many users you’d like to show per page? This is a very good feature. If you have too many users and you’d like all of your users to be included on this leaderboard, you can tell Google which metric or report you’d like to track on this specific group.

You also have the option to filter out reports based on a specific period. So you can choose to only show today yesterday, current week, et cetera, you can choose which reports you’d like to show on your group leaderboards column, by toggling each report, you can so enabled search sort, hide administrators and cash from choosing what you’d like to show in group leaderboard. We also have this gear icon where you can set some basic stuff. She’s visibility, where you can set. If you’d like this leaderboard to be public-private or password protected. Did we so have an excerpt where you can add some texts to be shown upon viewing the leaderboard and the leaderboard shortcode as a code we can use to embed leaderboard to any page? Once you’ve got everything set up, don’t forget to click on update to save the changes. Nate, do you want to see how your leaderboard looks like you would need to create a page, then add this leaderboard to that page, page. We would first need to exit out from the leaderboard editor to do so. Click on the WordPress icon located in the upper left-hand corner. Go to pages located on the left-hand side.

Click on, add new to add a new page. Add the title of your page. After adding your title,

Click on the plus button to add a block shortcode in the search box, then click on the shortcode. Once you have the shortcode block added copy and paste the shortcode from your leaderboard.

So you’ll have to grab this shortcode and paste this is on the shortcode block in the leaderboard page you’ve created. Once everything is set, click on publish to publish your page.

Now, if you click on preview, then preview a new tab. It will preview your leaderboard and we’ll show

All the reports, metrics you’ve set with your member’s position on the leaderboard.
