    Hi guys,

    I noticed lot of games websites rip games from other sites. My question is, how do I get any of these games on to my WP site...https://www.starwarsgamesonline.com/

    Thanks for your help in advance,

    James

    He is iframing the game from other source. It's not hard to do if you know basic HTML coding

    You can try to embed games with these:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/arcadeready/
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-games-embed/
    https://encrypted.google.com/search?q=embed+games+in+wordpress
    https://codecanyon.net/item/myarcadeplugin-starter-wordpress-arcade-plugin/8723057

    Use inspect element on the game you want, to get the address of the game, then you can embed/iframe eg http://www.starwarsgamesonline.com/wp-content/uploads/games/custom/F/force-flight.swf

    EDIT: You are in luck, he hasn't protected his directories so you should be able to harvest what you want

    So you use a wordpress theme for your site? May I ask which theme it is? Does it require anything of backend code to make a site like yours?

    Looking at the source-code of the website https://www.starwarsgamesonline.com/ it looks like they are using the Kizi Theme for WordPress and the MyArcadePlugin

    I am using the Genesis theme with a child theme. Or are you referring to the link I posted? If so, that's not my site.

    @Asif WILSON Khan I bet when I ask what your hourly rate as my personal directory traversal VA would be, the answer will be way above my available budget. And rightly so.

    Thanks for this great share!
