5. Content


The content generation module allows the user to choose different options for creating content for posts or reviewing already created posts.

Templates comprise predefined configurations for content generation, which users can customize to their preference. Each template is distinguished by two primary attributes:

  • Type:
    • Generation: Tailored for crafting new posts.
    • Revision: Intended for revising or updating established posts.
  • Origin:
    • System: System-based templates are immutable and cannot be removed. However, users can create a duplicate.
    • User: User-originated templates offer flexibility; they can be modified, deleted, or duplicated as needed.

Within the post type editor, whether you’re using the Modern or Classic version, you’ll notice an additional panel named “Ai Copilot”.

Depending on whether you’re crafting a new post or editing an existing one, you’ll find either a “Generate Panel” or “Review Panel” button. Clicking this initiates a modal loaded with a comprehensive range of configurations, leveraging AI to facilitate the creation of tailored content.

5.1 Content tab


The templates used for creating and reviewing content have built-in features that allow you to add new ones, view them, make changes, and remove any you no longer need.

Here, you can manage templates for content generation: you can view, filter, create, modify, delete, or even duplicate them.

Below, we provide a detailed explanation for each section of this tab:

5.1.1 Content filters


You can filter templates based on their POST TYPE and ORIGIN:

5.1.2 Content table


This table offers several actions:

  • Edit: Opens a modal showcasing a range of settings to customize the template.
  • Clone: Creates a duplicate of the template.
  • Delete: Removes the template.

5.1.3 Creating a template


To create a template, click on the "+ template" button. This tutorial also covers how to edit a template using the "edit" button.

Within the modal window, you’ll find various customization options, grouped for your convenience. We’ll go over each of these options in the following sections.

Template

This group focuses on the essential attributes of your template.

  • Label: Here, you can give your template a name or label for easy identification.

Prompt

In this group, you define the specific requests or “prompts” that guide the AI’s behavior.

Throughout these instructions, there are variables enclosed in curly braces, such as “{TOPIC}”, “{LANGUAGE}”, “{WRITING_STYLE}”, etc. These are placeholders meant to be replaced by the corresponding field content.

  • Prompt Title: The API is designed to craft titles for WordPress blog posts. Users provide input such as the desired topic, language, writing style, and tone. Titles are constrained to a length of 40 to 60 characters and must remain free of quotation marks.
  • Prompt Sections: This prompt directs the API to formulate headings for an article. It outlines the required number of headings, contextualizes them with the title, and specifies the desired language, style, tone, and format. Headings are expected to fall between 40 and 60 characters and be structured using the <h2> HTML tag.
  • Prompt Content: Here, the API receives guidance on constructing content tailored to a specific title and topic. The content’s organization should align with the provided headings.
  • Prompt Excerpt: The API is tasked with generating a concise excerpt for the article, rooted in the supplied title and content. This excerpt should adhere to designated style and tone, remain within 40 to 60 characters, and refrain from using quotation marks.
  • Prompt Tags: This instruction revolves around tag creation for the article. Tags, which provide a quick summary or categorization of content, should be separated by commas and be pertinent to the article’s title and content. Notably, these tags should exclude any hash symbols.

Variables

Offers a set of adjustable parameters designed to shape the content generation process according to specific requirements.

  • Number of Sections: This parameter allows users to define how many distinct sections the generated content should have. By default it’s set to “2”, indicating that the content should be divided into two main sections.
  • Number of Paragraphs per Section: This control determines the number of paragraphs in each section. With it currently set to “2”, it implies that each of the sections should contain two paragraphs.
  • Number of Words: Here, users can specify the desired word count for the entire content. By default the word count is set to “1000”, meaning the generated content should be approximately 1000 words long.
  • Language: This dropdown lets users select the language in which the content should be generated. The default setting is now ‘Site Language’, which reflects the primary language of the website,
  • Style: This option defines the overall approach and texture of the content, some options are:

  • Temperature: The temperature parameter affects the randomness of the AI’s output.
    • The slider range is between 0 and 1.
    • At lower values, the model’s output is more deterministic and focused.
    • At higher values, like the displayed “0.8”, the model becomes more experimental and might take more risks in its responses. This can lead to more diverse but potentially less predictable outputs.
  • Max Tokens: This setting determines the maximum length of the generated content.
    • A token can be as short as one character or as long as one word.
    • In the image, the value is “2048”, meaning the generated content will not exceed 2048 tokens. Once this limit is reached, the model will stop generating further content.
