Installation

Step 1 – Download the AI Blog Post Generator Plugin

While we aim to add the AI Blog Post Generator Plugin to the WordPress Plugin Repository, the submission and approval process is a lengthy one which we do not control the timeline of. For that reason, at least for now, you need to download the plugin from our website.

Step 2 – Navigate to the Plugins Page

Step 3 – Click on Upload Plugin

There is a button at the top of this screen next to the page title “Add Plugins” which, when clicked will expand the form used to find and upload the plugin.

Step 4 – Upload New Plugin

With the upload form showing, you can now click on the “Choose File” button in to locate and select the plugin.

Step 5 – Choose the AI Blog Post Generator Plugin

Once you’ve found and selected the plugin, click on “Open” to add the file in the upload form.

Step 6 – Install Plugin

Verify that the correct filename shows in the form and click on the “Install Now” button.

Step 7 – Activate Plugin

Once the plugin finishes uploading and installing, you will see a page that prompts you to click on the “Activate Plugin” button.

Step 8 – Plugin Activated!

Now that the plugin is installed and activated, you will see it in the list of plugins, ready to use!

Configuration

There are two new screens you will need to become familiar with that come with this plugin: the AI Generator Settings page which can be found under the Settings links while in the WordPress Dashboard, and the AI Generator page found under the Posts links while in the WordPress Dashboard. We’ll start with the Settings.

While the settings you see on this page may update over time as new features, performance improvements, etc are added to the plugin (and we’ll do our best to maintain the documentation promptly as new updates are made), the location for the plugin settings will remain the same.

License Key

We have both a free and a premium version of the AI Blog Post Generator Plugin. If you only plan to use the features that are available in the free version, just leave this field blank!

If you would like to upgrade the plugin by purchasing a license, please visit our product page.

Once you have purchased a license, you will be given a key which should be in the format of:

MTG-xxxxx-xxxxx-AIBPG

Place this key in the “License Key” field on the settings page

Once active, you will notice that the “Activate License” link goes away and shows that you have a “Valid License!” If needed, you can also click on the “Deactivate License” link (such as if you wanted to use the premium plugin on another site without getting a new license).

OpenAI Key

In the current version of the plugin, both free and premium, OpenAI is the model that is available for generating blog posts. Without an API Key for OpenAI, the plugin will not be able to generate any blog posts for you, so for that reason it is required.

To get an API Key for OpenAI, first you need to create an account:

  1. Visit https://openai.com/ and sign up for an account.
  2. Verify your email address to complete account registration.
  3. Complete your profile (as of 2023-07-19 requires First Name, Last Name, and Birthday fields).
  4. Verify your phone number (must be a number that is not associated with any other account and can not be a virtual number).

Once your account is fully-established, you can get your API Key:

Click on API.

Click on “View API keys” in the menu that displays when you click in the top-right corner.

On this page, you will click on the button “+ Create new secret key” and give the key a unique name (not required, but helpful to know where you are using the key at).

Press the “Create secret key” button.

(This key is not active.)

Once you’ve given it a name and then you will be greeted with a message and your newly created key:

Please save this secret key somewhere safe and accessible. For security reasons, you won’t be able to view it again through your OpenAI account. If you lose this secret key, you’ll need to generate a new one.

Now is the time you’ll want to copy the key from this page, then paste in the Settings field for the AI Blog Post Generator plugin.
