I found this snippet of code and I've managed to include this in my "handle posts" code so I expect to see points added to my profile each time a "add a trail".
include_once JPATH_ROOT . '/components/com_community/libraries/core.php'; include_once JPATH_ROOT . '/components/com_community/libraries/userpoints.php'; CuserPoints::assignPoint('trail.add');
Anyone have any idea why this isn't working?
