Add a points transfer column on leaderboards

The following snippet shows how to combine the Transfers add-on points transfer functionality with the Leaderboards add-on adding a new column with the [gamipress_points_transfer] shortcode to let your users transfer their points to users listed on the leaderboard.

Note: If you want to add more columns to the leaderboard, check this code snippet that will help you to add a custom column with an user custom field.

function my_prefix_leaderboard_points_transfer_column( $columns, $leaderboard_id, $leaderboard ) {

    // You can limit the custom column to just a specific leaderboard
    if( $leaderboard_id !== 123 ) {
        return $columns;

    // Add the new column
    // The key "points_transfer" will be used to filter the column output in next function
    // The "Points Transfer" will be the column title
    $columns['points_transfer'] = __( 'Points Transfer' );

    return $columns;

add_filter( 'gamipress_leaderboards_leaderboard_columns_info', 'my_prefix_leaderboard_points_transfer_column', 10, 3 );

function my_prefix_leaderboard_points_transfer_column_output( $output, $leaderboard_id, $position, $item, $column_name, $leaderboard_table ) {

    // Set the points amount and the points type slug you want
    $points = 100;
    $points_type = 'points-type-slug';

    // Set as column output the [gamipress_points_transfer] shortcode
    $output = gamipress_do_shortcode( 'gamipress_points_transfer', array(
        'transfer_type'     => 'fixed',
        'amount'            => $points,
        'points_type'       => $points_type,
        'recipient_id'      => $item['user_id'],
        'select_recipient'  => 'no',
        'button_text'       => __( 'Transfer Points' )
    ) );

    // You can get the same result with WordPress do_shortcode() function, gamipress_do_shortcode() is a developer oriented function
    //$output = do_shortcode( '[gamipress_points_transfer transfer_type="fixed" amount="' . $points . '" points_type="' . $points_type . '" recipient_id="' . $item['user_id'] . '" select_recipient="no" button_text="Transfer Points"]' );

    // Return the output
    return $output;

// This filter dynamically changes based on the column key following the next pattern: gamipress_leaderboards_leaderboard_column_{key}
// In previous function the new column key is "points_transfer", so the filter will be: gamipress_leaderboards_leaderboard_column_points_transfer
add_filter( 'gamipress_leaderboards_leaderboard_column_points_transfer', 'my_prefix_leaderboard_points_transfer_column_output', 10, 6 );

// Probably a desired workflow is to refresh the leaderboard page instead of redirect the user to the transfers history
// so let's to force transfer refresh the page instead of redirect
function my_prefix_force_transfers_refresh_page( $response, $transfer, $transfer_items ) {

    $referrer = isset( $_POST['referrer'] ) ? $_POST['referrer'] : '';

    if( ! empty( $referrer ) ) {
        $response['redirect'] = true;
        $response['redirect_url'] = $referrer; // Set as redirect URL the same page where form has been submitted

    return $response;
add_filter( 'gamipress_transfers_process_transfer_response', 'my_prefix_force_transfers_refresh_page', 10, 3 );
