MyArcadeBlog 1.5 released!

First of all, I would like to thank everybody for the great feedback. For improvements and further developments of this plugin the feedback is essential.

In three weeks the plugin has been downloaded over 500 times! I didn’t know that there are so many people who are interested on creating arcade web sites with wordpress…

If you don’t know what MyArcadeBlog is, please read here and then come back and read the rest. 😉

Since last version some bugs were reported and I hope that the issues are fixed now.

What has changed in version 1.5?

  • Game thumbnails will be shown when adding games to blog
    • This is nothing special. Only a little gadget.


  • Check, if the feed has been downloaded successfully
    • A small routine checks if the feed has been downloaded or if you got an 404 Error because of invalid Mochiads URL or Mochiads ID.


  • SWF file names will be decoded before saving (%20-problem)
    • Some users reported a problem with white spaces at swf file names. This problem should be solved now. The swf file names will be decoded before adding them into the database and your web space.
  • White spaces will be removed from MochiadsURL and MochiadsID
    • Another problem with white spaces.. 🙂 Now the unintentionally white spaces will be automatically removed

    • Hi Tanel,
      there are two options:

      1. You have images as banner:
        1. In your theme directory, there is a folder called „ads“. Put there your banner image.
        2. Open ad_125.php and replace „banner.gif“ with your own image.
        3. The link to the banner site goes here: <a href=“http://LINK_HERE/“>
      2. You have a banner code:
        • Replace everything beetwen <li> and </li> with your banner code
  5. nothing 🙁

    does /ads/NAME_OF_BANNER_IMAGE can be banner pic address or i need to upload pic to the ads folder ?

    • Hi Tanel,
      If you have a pic adress you don’t need to upload this image. Put your pic Adress here: >img src=“http://YOUR_PIC_ADRESS“ border=“0″ alt=““ …

  8. Hi Daniel.
    Sorry to bugging you again 😛
    as we can see that not all games(swf) is friendly with our themes, some games are wider than other.
    and that make our themes look awful (not fit to DIV area) just like

    could you make a fix width to the SWF games that apply to our themes and make them go full screen if certain button is pressed.
    just suggestion though
