Classifieds: automate giving credits by member class?

I'd like to make it so that my Premium members get a batch of bonus credits to use with Classifieds. I understand I could gift these credits manually for each Premium member, but that solution just doesn't scale.

Is there a way to automate it, so that when someone identified as a certain member type gets X free credits?

(I use S2Membership for my member level classes. I obviously do not expect WPMU to support the plugin, but I'm just wondering if Classifieds can recognize member classes.)

    Greetings offbeatempire,

    Thank you for the great question.

    You are absolutely correct that it can be pretty challenging to support other peoples work, but we do our best here to help you with any WordPress issues at all.

    Though I personally do not know if Classifieds will recognize your member classes of your S2 membership plugin, in an effort to help I will see if I can get the lead developer of Classifieds plugin in here to offer us advice/advise us of this question and your possible integration with S2.

    Though this may take a bit longer then a normal ticket, I will see about getting the lead developer in here asap.

    Cheers, Joe

    What you would need to do is update the user meta data for those users you want to have more credits.
    $credits = get_user_meta($user_id, 'cf_credits', true);
    $credits = $credits + 10;
    update_user_meta($user_id, 'cf_credits', $credits);

    put it in a loop and feed it the user_ids. S2 has it's own programming for picking out the various user levels which they document quite well.
