Generate: Content: Research


Page Generator Pro provides functionality to automatically populate a Content Group with AI researched content based on a given topic, known as Research

This is useful if, for example, you need to write about a subject / topic but you’re unsure where to begin, or what content to write.

The researched content is inserted into the Classic Editor, Gutenberg or your Page Builder’s block/module, and can then be edited in the same way as any other content.


To enable Research functionality, you’ll need to:

  • Sign up to a supported third party AI content research service, and
  • Enable the third party service in Page Generator Pro’s settings

Refer to the Settings: Research documentation for steps to complete the above.

Create or Edit a Content Group

Once setup, you’ll need to create a new Content Group, or edit an existing one.

Refer to the Generate: Content functionality for steps to complete this.

Research: Classic Editor

When editing a Content Group in the Classic Editor:

  • In the Visual Editor’s toolbar, click the Research button:
    Page Generator Pro: Research: Classic Editor Button
  • Enter the topic that the content should be based on.  For example, if the Content Group relates to plumbing services, you might use “how to fix a leak” or “how to find the best plumber”.  The more detailed the topic, the better quality content that will be returned.

As research inserts text into the Content Group, the topic cannot be a Keyword.

Depending on the service chosen, an on screen modal may display, showing the approximate amount of time the research service will take to produce the content.Page Generator Pro: Research: Modal Progress

It’s important not to navigate away from this screen, and to wait for the given time. Page Generator Pro will check every 10 seconds until the research service completes the content, which may be slightly longer than the estimated time.

Once complete, the content will be inserted into the Visual Editor:

Research: Gutenberg

To use Page Generator Pro’s Research tools within the Gutenberg editor:

  • Add a Classic Editor block

  • In the Visual Editor’s toolbar, click the Research button:

  • Follow the rest of the steps for the Classic Editor section above.

Research: Page Builders

Research can be performed within any Page Builder that supports a Text Editor widget/module using the Classic Editor (sometimes known as TinyMCE).

To do this, follow the Research: Classic Editor section above.
