Can Multiple Badges Be Seen?

Good day everyone,
I would like to make profiles come alive within posts.
Yes, all badges earned can be seen if visiting a member's profile page, but within discussions, it seems only rank or badge is available. For example:

DivyaDar has achieved the rank of supporter
chroe has earned the Seismic Certified badge
tmetcalf (me) has the Seismic Employee badge

  • Is it possible to show multiple badges on a profile within a conversation?
  • Is it possible to show 1 badge and current rank on a profile within a conversation?

Thank you,

Toby

I don't think there is any method to do that, even with their API. We're in the middle of trying to tackle a lot of badge/gamification updates, and this is unfortunately an area we keep running into walls.  Maybe someone can educate me as well, but right now  badges, as best we can tell, you pretty much get the entire badge page, or nothing at all. There isn't any middle ground and no customization options.

Thanks @StanGromer 
I realize there is only so much real estate in a profile; I would like create a bit more engagement and highlight skills are certifications members have. Have you ever done work with your community member's signatures? That could be real estate to tap into and it information would appear when people engage.
Best,

Good day Team Khoros -
It appears we can only add text to our profiles, is there a way to add badges or graphics?
Thank you,
Toby

We haven't actively used signatures today but some folks in our community do fill them out with additional information about themselves.

I don't think pictures can be added to signatures either @StanGromer

Pictures can certainly be added to signatures, as per mine below. The user needs to have HTML permission for their posts and signatures.

<#assign userIDFromParam = http.request.parameters.name.get("id","") />	
<#assign queryForUserBadges = "SELECT user_badges FROM users WHERE id='" + userIDFromParam + "'" />
<#assign userBadges = rest("2.0","/search?q=" + queryForUserBadges?url).data.items?first.user_badges.items/>		
<ul class="custom-hc-user-badge-list">
<#assign badgeCounter = 0 />
	<#list userBadges?sort_by(['badge', 'awarded']) as badgeObj>
		<#if badgeObj.earned_date?? && badgeCounter < 5 >
			<li><img class="custom-hc-user-badge-image" title="${badgeObj.badge.title}" alt="${badgeObj.badge.title}" src="${badgeObj.badge.icon_url}"></li>
		<#assign badgeCounter++/>
		</#if>
	</#list>
</ul>

 

 

I'm using this in endpoint, and call this markup from custom component which override one of non-contract component of message quilt.

Endpoint returns list of earned bages sorted by rarity and limited to five
