We recently updated to 4.6.10 and didn't let upgrade handle the ranks and badges as we run custom groups and ranks.

But we are interested now in using achievement with ranks and badges and only found 4 badges icon in the backend.

How do we get more ranks & badges icon shown in achievement blog?

Glad to hear you like the achievements system. You can indeed re-add the defaults if you wish, even after upgrading. If you look in the following folder on your server, you will see the 3 xml files which are used to add these. You can use these files with the import button in the relevant areas. Of course, import ranks and badges before you import the rules

\applications\core\data\achievements

Once you have done that and made any adjustments you would like to make, you can then use the rebuild button to rebuild for all members on your site

Hope that answers your question, but please feel free to shout up if you have any further questions on these

This didn't work for us, we only have the default 4 in the badges.xml file. Is there another way to get these back?

EDIT: it seems some of the defaults come from re-importing the rules themselves actually.

Glad you were able to get them imported. Can I confirm that you're all set?

Please see the quoted reply from my colleague which is the solution to this topic. There are 3 xml files in that directory. Each would be named to the corresponding item (badges, ranks, and rules).

It will reset then rebuild to the rules which you have in place with the content, actions, etc... which are present. I.E. if I had a rule previously of 100 posts get 1 point and I still have that rule and data present then users who meet that will get that point again. However, if a rule or data is no longer present, the user would not be attributed it.
