UpVote has been created to help you build your very own Reddit-style, content sharing website.
The clean and modern design of UpVote will ensure that your website not only loads as quickly as possible but also has the right look and feel to entice your visitors to sign-up and start interacting with your content. Through the theme customization options, you can easily modify many aspects of your website. This includes the color choices, layout options, and more.
It’s also very easy for your visitors to sign-up and start adding their content to your site. Thanks to the social login feature, they can instantly sign-up using their existing Facebook or Twitter accounts. Once logged in, as well as submitting stories, they can also vote other user’s content up or down to increase or decrease its visibility. Logged in users can also leave comments for the rest of the community. All of this interaction takes place through front-end submissions forms, rather than having users navigate their way around the WordPress admin dashboard.
To help simplify the content sharing process, UpVote includes a custom-built plugin that will automatically fetch content from any URL that is submitted. This content includes the post title, featured image, and description from the link that’s been shared.
With UpVote, your visitors will have no trouble joining your community and sharing their content with like-minded individuals.
Cube is ideal for sharing any kind of content, from posts and images, through to audio and video.
The front end submission forms prevent you and your community from having to interact with the WordPress admin interface when it comes to adding new content. Users can also register using their Facebook accounts, which is another way of removing friction which could otherwise prevent them from taking the time to sign up and share content.
Once a user shares a new piece of content through the front end publishing forms, their contribution is saved as a draft to allow you to review it before publishing it or rejecting it.
The Cube content sharing theme includes four homepage layouts, and the premium Slider Revolution plugin is included, saving you the price of that plugin, while also allowing you to add some impressive image and content sliders to your website.
Cube is fully responsive and retina ready to ensure it looks great on a wide selection of devices and their varying screen sizes. The theme also comes with two skins, giving you a choice of looks for your site.
If you want a flexible and cleanly designed content sharing theme for WordPress then why not check out Cube.
