    So, I own a domain and hosting, but I don't really know what or how to do something with it.

    I did wordpress for a while and made a few cents uploading content by myself, but now I'm thinking I should do a user driven content site.

    The site can only be a funny picture site because of the domain name.

    So, any ideas?

    I don't really know how to setup user driven content on the website (I only know html/css).

    That's what I was thinking, but do you know what free plugins/themes are good for people uploading pictures?

    I know it sounds cheap, but I'm not willing to pay $50 for the premium themes.

    I'm not experienced with this, but I think that setting up one of these types of funny picture sites where users submit images/videos isn't as easy as you might think. You have to check the content to make sure nothing offensive gets posted for example. Hopefully a moderator or someone who runs this site can post in this thread to let you know (from a first-hand perspective) the ins and outs of running a user-generated content site (in this case, a forum). I don't want to discourage you from doing this, but I'm just letting you know my thinking. Good luck.

    Oh believe me, I know it's not easy, but I'm determined to get it started. I think it may be something fun to try.

    I really just need a wordpress theme/plugins so I can do the moderating you were talking about or on the other hand I need some .php files or something that will let people upload stuff and me moderate it. I don't know where to get stuff like that without paying for it though, like I said in my previous post.

    Maybe someone has a 9GAG clone or similar product that I could upload and play with?

    Also, other ideas are cool too. I want to learn as much as I can about this stuff so don't be afraid to post your opinion.

    Alright, cool. There's a clone for the website damnlol that was posted in a thread on here. The name of that thread is "Make Easy Money with Memlol..." (can't post the link to it). There's probably other clones on this site too, but I didn't check.

    Thanks guys, I'll look around for those clones.

    Do you happen to have any direct links to these things though? Or maybe some instructions on how to install them?

    Is it really as simple as uploading the files to my webhost?
