ArcadePress is an open source arcade plugin for WordPress that allows you to turn any WordPress site into a full arcade site, including flash game upl

Why is my ArcadePress "mainpage" empty, & what should I put there?

You have to create and/or select a WordPress page to act as the base or "mainpage" of ArcadePress. All games that you add will be created as child pages of this page. It is up to what you place on the mainpage, but we recommend using the ArcadePress shortcodes to show the game categories, the newest games, the most played games, and more.

How do I add Recent Games and Top games to my posts and pages?

Use shortcodes in your posts or pages. For example, to display recent games added to your site, use this shortcode: [arcadepress display="recentgames"]

To display the top played games, use: [arcadepress display="topgames"]

The rest of the examples below apply to both recentgames and topgames shortcodes:

By default, these shortcodes list 10 games. To show more or less, add this to the shortcode: [arcadepress display="recentgames" quantity="20"]

In that example I increased the quantity to 20.

Now let's say you want to display the thumbnail image with each game, you would use this shortcode: [arcadepress display="topgames" usepictures="true"]

Or let's say you want to display just thumbnails with no text: [arcadepress display="recentgames" usepictures="true" usetext="false"]

In this final example, we'll use all the options to display just the single most played game: [arcadepress display="topgames" quantity="1" usepictures="true" usetext="false"]

Is this plugin stable or finished yet?

Not at this time. This plugin is in it's infancy and is still in the Alpha state as of this writing.

What is ArcadePress intended to do?

Allow WordPress to have a full open source arcade script extension. We have high ambitions for ArcadePress including highscore capabilities, dashboard and sidebar widgets, automatic game import from feeds, full game management, and much more.
