On this page, you are either creating a new badge or editing an existing one. The following properties of the badge can be defined:


Display name

Name of the badge displayed on the website and in the administration interface.

Code name

A unique name that serves as an identifier for the badge, for example in the API. You can leave the default (automatic) option to have the system generate an appropriate code name based on the display name.

Image URL

Sets the path of the image that will be displayed as a representation of the badge. This can be a URL, a relative path from the root of the web project (starting with "~/") or a path under the default theme folder (~/App_Themes/Default/Images/), for example:




Is automatic

If checked, the badge will be assigned to users automatically based on the number of gained activity points. Every time a user acquires activity points, for example by posting on the website's forums, the system automatically checks whether the level required for a new badge has been reached and updates it if this is the case.


When disabled, the badge will need to be assigned manually by site administrator and will remain assigned permanently, regardless of the number of activity points.

Top limit

This property only affects automatic badges.


The system assigns the badge to users who have less activity points than the limit. If a user fulfills this condition for multiple badges, the system always assigns the one with the highest Top limit value.


More information about badges can be found in Developer's Guide -> Development -> Membership, permissions and security -> Badges.
