Integrate your gaming site with Twitch.tv
GoodGame makes it extremely easy to integrate your site with Twitch.tv and show your live game streams, video archive and online/offline status right in the site. We have made multiple special content blocks that allow you to pull content from Twitch and use it as a part of your site either in homepage or dedicated stream page. The theme also features live stream sidebar widget that can be used throughout the theme.
Edit homepage with drag&drop editor
GoodGame has a beautiful newspaper style homepage layout that you can edit with drag and drop page editor. There are dozen different types of homepage content blocks that can be used and combined in different setups to achieve the perfect layout for you site. The design for blog posts is clean and minimal to avoid distracting the reader.
Supercharge your Gaming Reviews
GoodGame is the perfect theme for review sites. Every post can easily be turned into a review for a new game or gadget etc. All you have to do to get started is open the post edit page in your WordPress admin and set the star rating value. This rating will now show up on the thumbnail for this post in homepage, blog article archive, search results etc.
Another cool thing that’s unique to GoodGame is the Review summary tool. The theme has a specially made custom Visual Composer block that allows you to list all the pros and cons for the product and rate each of the aspects separately. These ratings will be animated the moment this block enters users view port.
Create Video News
It’s very easy to embed a video in your posts and reviews. Just provide a link to the YouTube or Vimeo video you would like to embed and it will be shown in the place of post thumbnail. It’s also possible to set the videos to auto play immediately after opening the post.
Monetise traffic with GoodGame Ads System
GoodGame has extensive features that allow you to insert advertisements in header, sidebars, posts and various other places in the theme. The theme supports different types of ads in multiple sizes. It’s easier than ever to set up Google Adsense ads or to embed an iframe banner for an affiliate partner. Other advertisement networks are also supported – the theme allows you to insert any ad network script and display it on front end. You can also use regular image banners that can be linked anywhere – this can be useful for advertising products sold right there in your site (using WooCommerce e-commerce software).
The ad management system is simple but quite powerful. You can enable/disable individual ads and their locations with a singe click. Adding and rotating multiple ads is just a matter of checking couple of check-boxes. It’s also super simple to add new advertisements or remove old ads. GoodGame supports the most popular ad sizes and allows besides the predefined locations like header, gallery, below posts etc. you also have access to ad widgets and visual composer blocks for adding ads to posts.
