Adult Site Skins: WordPress Porn Tube Site Theme

Turn WordPress Into An Adult Tube Site With Adult Site Skins

Turn WordPress Into An Adult Tube Site With Adult Site Skins

If you’re looking into starting your own adult website, there’s tons of ways to go about it. One of the more popular routes is using the WordPress platform to build your site.  WordPress is very popular because it’s open-source, making it 100% free. Because it’s open-source, there’s also a huge developer community creating themes and plugins (such as the one we’re covering here) that you can use to further customize your site.

Adult Site Skins is one of those developers creating themes specifically to convert your WordPress site into into an adult tube site. They offer multiple themes with different color schemes. The theme comes with a simple and very profitable layout. The widget space can be used for links, affiliate banners or display ads to help monetize your site. It’s a very simple and easy to use theme and great for easily deploying your very own tube site.

 

Building A Tube Site Using WordPress

If you need to learn how to use the platform, we’ve got a great guide to building a WordPress porn site. It’ll go over everything you need to know to install the WordPress platform. It’ll also go through some very basic steps to configure your new site and start building. Because all that information is already contained there, I’m not going to repeat it here. Read the guide if you need to know about the basics of installing the WordPress platform.

 

Installing The Adult Site Skins Tube ThemeWordPress Appearance and Themes

The first step to installing the Adult Site Skins theme is to download it. Pick out the color-scheme that you want and hit the download button. It’ll come as a zip file. In the WordPress admin area, under Appearance, you’ll find Themes (see right).

Up at the very top of the Themes page, you’ll see an Add New button. Click on it. Up at the very top of the next page, there will be a button Upload Theme. click on it.

On this page, you’ll see a Choose File and Upload button. Select the downloaded theme zip file using the browser and click on the Upload button. WordPress will now upload and install your new theme.

 

Customizing The Adult Skins Tube Theme

Now that you’ve got the theme installed, it’s time to customize it. If you’re an experienced WordPress developer, you probably don’t need help with this. If not, there’s some certain tweaks you might want to do. Here’s what I recommend.

Filling In Or Removing The ‘Hot Offers’ – All the Adult Site Skins themes come with two Hot Offers boxes up at the very top. You’ve got the option of filling them in or deleting them. I usually delete them. Primarily to keep the ads ‘below the fold’ (so you can’t see them on the initial page load). Google looks at ads and whether they’re above the fold, therefore I prefer to put something like a category widget or a popular post widget. Whatever you do is up to you.

To modify the Hot Offers, go to Appearance → Editor . This is how you edit the actual theme files. Everything might seem complicated (welcome to PHP) but hacking it isn’t nearly as hard as coding it. You’ll find all the PHP files listed to the right. Select sidebar-right.php. If you want to delete these boxes and just use normal widgets, remove the following line of code:

<!–Right sidebar 300×250 banners block, remove if not used–>

<?php get_template_part(‘banners’); ?>

<!–End of banners block, don’t remove anything after this line–>

If you want to place offers there, go the PHP file named banners.php. Paste the code snippet for the ad, whether it’s javascript of HTML for the image file and click-through link. The standard ad size is 300×250.

Removing Footer Link – I also remove the footer link from the theme file. This is primarily to prevent PageRank (Read the post on SEO to know more about Pagerank) from leaking through the external link. It’s also to make it look a little cleaner and more proprietary. To remove the footer link, go to Appearance → Editor and select the footer.php file. If you only want to remove the link, delete the following piece of code:

<a href=”http://www.adultsiteskins.com/” target=”_blank”>AdultSiteSkins.com</a>

If you want to customize the rest of the footer, modify or replace the remaining piece of code, but make sure to leave the <div>’s intact!

Other Tweaks You Might Do – There’s many other tweaks you might consider. I’m going to list some things to consider, but not go into detail as they’re all listed on the WordPress guide. Some other tweaks you might consider include:

  • Changing number of posts from 10 to a number divisible by 4 to create even columns
  • Removing the stock comment system (I hate it!)
  • Changing / Removing “Just Another WordPress Site”

 

Adding Video Content To The Tube Site

What’s a tube site without video content? Now it’s time to add it! There’s multiple ways to go about that. The simplest (and cheapest as far as bandwidth goes) is to use embed codes. Alternatively, you can directly upload and embed the video files. WordPress is weird about adding huge video files through the Media Manager, so if you want to add the files yourself, you’ll need to manually upload them via FTP or CPanel and create the embed code yourself. Here’s some info on creating an embed code.

If you’re going the embed route, there’s multiple ways to go about it. You can find an affiliate program that offers embeddable content, manually add individual videos from the tube sites or use a WordPress plugin to import all the videos from a tube site, or from specific categories.

If you’re getting your embed codes from a tube site, remember that there’s always a possibility of the video being removed, either for copyright violation or because the user deleted the video or closed their account. If this happens, the video will be broken on your site. If you’re using an importer to import the content, you can use that same importer with a file for deleted videos to delete those videos. If you did it manually, you’ll have to manually review your site every once and awhile.

Adding the embed code to your site is easy. An embed code will be an HTML snippet. You’ll have to go to code view (right part of the New Post screen, see picture below) and paste the code snippet where you want it to appear. You’ll notice a width and height on the embed code. You can adjust this to make it better fit your theme. Once you’ve pasted the embed code, the video will appear on that page.

Sample WordPress Embed Code

Be sure to add some descriptive text, because it’ll help with SEO. Search engines can’t tell what the video is about, but they can use the title and text to determine what the page with the video is about. Without a good title and descriptive text, it’ll be hard to rank the pages in search engines.

To Set The Thumbnail For The Post – Select a thumbnail from the scene and use it as the featured image. That image will appear on the blog / feed page, category pages, tag pages and the Related Videos found below the main content area.
