Did you know that can create fully automated arcade games website with WordPress and MyArcadePlugin? That means that no maintenance or administration is needed and that new games are added automatically. You don’t need to lift a finger!
This post will show you how to create a online games turnkey website with our WordPress Arcade Plugin. We will use MyArcadePlugin Ultimate Package for this because it comes with over 28.000 free online games. You need a functional WordPress installation, too.
If you don’t know how to setup WordPress please read here before you continue.
Now it’s time to import the games database dump that comes with the Ultimate package. Therefore we will use MySQLDumper, because MySQLDumper is able to handle huge SQL files:
- Download and unzip MySQLDumper
- Upload and install MySQLDumper on your server in e.g. http://YOUR_SITE.com/msd/
- Upload the games database dump file that comes with MyArcadePlugin Ultimate to your MySQLDumper directory at work/backup/ (http://YOUR_SITE.com/msd/work/backup/)
- Go to MySQLDumper (http://YOUR_SITE.com/msd/) and click on “Restore”
- Select the uploaded file
- Click on “Choose tables to be restored”
- Check wp_myarcadegames and click on “Restore”
At this point MySQLDumper will import over 28.000 games to your database. When the process is finished, you can delete MySQLDumper from your server. We don’t need it anymore.
The next step is the installation of MyArcadePlugin. Use FTP to upload MyArcadePlugin your WordPress Plugin directory (wp-content/plugins). Login to your Dashboard, click on Plugins and activate MyArcadePlugin.
Go to MyArcadePlugin Settings and activate the automated game publishing and select ‘hourly’. From now on MyArcadePlugin will check every hour if Mochi or Heyzap has published a new game. If so, the game will be published.
You remember, we have imported over 28.000 free flash games to your database. To publish these games automatically you will need to install AddGamesToBlogRobot Plugin. This is a WordPress Robot Plugin that automatically publishes games from the games database. MyArcadePlugin premium member can download this Robot Plugin for free on our Bonus Forum. Just upload and activate the Plugin and you will get every hour a new game post for over 3 YEARS! That’s amazing, isn’t it?
The goal of a Turnkey Website is to make money without doing anything. Just add Google Adsense and other game based advertisements. Lean back, relax and enjoy the money!
Have fun with your 100% automated WordPress Arcade Website!
