    I'm tinkering wordpress as a beginner in php and webdev in general. I made this personal project so I can try some stuffs, and thought that I should make a site about something I like so that I won't lose motivation and will keep up with studying. I had an earlier wordpress site, but the problem is that it's NSFW and I won't be able to show it just to anyone I know for suggestions/opinions/criticisms. That's why I made this simple anime tube site, so that I can show it openly to anyone without any worries.

    This site is currently a work in progress and I don't aim for it to be big or profitable. I just want to have fun and freedom while learning some stuffs outside the usual lessons. I'm currently working on wordpress user roles and their authorization on managing and editing post, episode and video entires. I also have several more ideas like a report system, advanced search filters but they're for later when I improved my knowledge.

    I don't know how other tube site administrators manage their sites, so I'm most likely doing something wrong somewhere, or am not doing something I should yet. I'd love to hear about anything to improve this project, and improve my skills as well as a beginner.

    Improve the design, and add more posts preview in your home page.
    Good Luck

    If your plan is to make something simple, it's fine. I'm a web developer and I can tell you that if you are starting in the area you should start simple, don't rush and improve with time.
    You are doing good, keep up.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I personally coded it to have separate db tables for episodes and videos, and implemented a multi-language feature to easily query them.

    I don't know how you designed your tables but be careful with duplications.

    Here is something I think you should change:

    It's better to use a slug on the URI instead of a number like this https://tenshi.moe/a/n8paqglw/. It's not good for SEO, and also isn't rememberable. Imagine if someone wants to watch the anime called Oda Nobuna no Yabou, he needs to remember the n8paqglw or he will have to enter on the website and search for the anime. Not a very good thing. https://tenshi.moe/a/oda_nobuna_no_yabou/, way better, right?

    I'm not sure if this is a good solution, but I updated my website with it's own openload API to repost a video when removed.


    I had to make a separate db table for queueing a video when it is detected as down, and use a wp cron to process the said queues.

    Should I be sticking with something like this, or should I just manually upload everything to another host?

    SEO is necessary for sites.
