    Hello,

    How can I automatically mark users as featured when their post count equals 25 published posts.

    Thanks

    Hi Tosin,
    Thank you for the question.

    The plugin does not support automatic featuring. It does have an api for marking user as featured.

    You will need some coding assistance. If you are comfortable with code, you can check number of posts of a user when the publish it and mark them as featured.

    I made a rough attempt

     add_action( 'publish_post', function () {
    
      $site_users = get_users( array( 'fields' => 'ID' ) );
      
      $users_post_count = ts_get_user_posts_count($site_users, array(
        'post_type' =>'post',
        'post_status'=> 'published'
      ));
    
      if ( 24 > $users_post_count ) {
    		return;
      }
      
      bp_featured_members()->add_user( $user_id );
    } );

    Hi Tosin,
    Please give it a try and let me know if it works or not?

    
    
    add_action( 'transition_post_status', function ( $new_status, $old_status, $post ) {
    
    	if ( 'publish' !== $new_status || ! function_exists( 'bp_featured_members' ) ) {
    		return;
    	}
    
    	$user = get_user_by( 'id', $post->post_author );
    
    	if ( ! $user ) {
    		return;
    	}
    
    	$users_post_count = count_user_posts( $user->ID, 'post' );
    
    	if ( 25 == $users_post_count && ! bp_featured_members()->is_featured( $user->ID ) ) {
    		bp_featured_members()->add_user( $user->ID );
    	}
    
    }, 10, 3 );

    it strictly marks on 2. If you want to mark any user who has more than 24 posts(e.g 26, 28 etc), you change the condition from

    
    if ( 25 == $users_post_count && ! bp_featured_members()->is_featured( $user->ID ) ) {
    		bp_featured_members()->add_user( $user->ID );
    	}
    

    to

    
    if ( $users_post_count >= 25  && ! bp_featured_members()->is_featured( $user->ID ) ) {
    		bp_featured_members()->add_user( $user->ID );
    	}

    Thanks Brajesh

    Can you improve this a little further to prevent user abuse especially when users publish below 25 posts

    If post count = 25 mark user as featured
    but
    If user deletes a post and post count is below 25 mark user as unfeatured

    Hi Tosin,
    The problem is we are not storing any flag/marker to differentiate a user who has been marked as featured manually by the site admin.

    So, if we start automating the non featuring of user, it will impact that.

    Is that fine with you?

    Hi Tosin,
    Here is your updated code

    
    
    add_action( 'transition_post_status', function ( $new_status, $old_status, $post ) {
    
    	if ( 'publish' !== $new_status || ! function_exists( 'bp_featured_members' ) ) {
    		return;
    	}
    
    	$user = get_user_by( 'id', $post->post_author );
    
    	if ( ! $user ) {
    		return;
    	}
    
    	$users_post_count = count_user_posts( $user->ID, 'post' );
    
    	$is_featured = bp_featured_members()->is_featured( $user->ID );
    
    	if( 25 == $users_post_count && ! $is_featured ){
    		bp_featured_members()->add_user( $user->ID );
    	} elseif( $is_featured && $users_post_count< 25 ) {
    		bp_featured_members()->remove_user( $user->ID );
    	}
    
    }, 10, 3 );
