Keywords


Videos are not designed to be a substitute for instructions. Please refer to the detailed Documentation below.

Keywords can be seen as template tags, with each Keyword comprising of one or more Terms.  Depending on the content for each Term, it may also be possible to access a subset of each Term’s data through the use of Delimiters and Column Names.

When Pages, Posts or Custom Post Types are generated through the Generate Content screens, you’ll use Keywords.  A different Term within each Keyword will automatically be used for each Page, Post or Custom Post Type generated.

Don’t worry if this conceptual structure doesn’t make sense immediately; working through the Documentation – in order – will introduce and explain these concepts in more detail.

To access keywords, click on the Page Generator Pro menu entry in the WordPress Administration, and then click Keywords.

Add a Keyword

  1. Click the Add Keyword button below the title:
    Page Generator Pro: Keywords: Add Keyword Button
  2. Define the following options:
    1. Keyword: the template tag you’ll use when generating Pages / Posts / Custom Post Types.  Use letters, numbers and underscores only – no spaces.
    2. Terms: the words or phrases that will be cycled through when generating content using this keyword.  Enter one word / phrase per line.
    3. Data Import: if you have a text file with one word / phrase per line, you can upload it here.  This will append the data to the end of the Terms field – so any existing Terms you’ve specified will remain.
      Want to upload a CSV file into multiple Keywords and Terms instead? Use the Import CSV option.
    4. Click the Save button
If you try to create / change a keyword to one that already exists, you’ll receive a warning telling you that the keyword has already been specified. Each keyword must be unique.

Add a Keyword: Understanding Delimiter and Column Fields

When adding or editing a Keyword, you’ll see options to define both Delimiter and Column Fields.  These give us greater control over outputting partial Terms when using a Keyword.

Assuming you have the following example Keyword configured:

Setting Value
Keyword location
Terms Birmingham, West Midlands
Harborne, West Midlands
Selly Oak, West Midlands

We can define the Delimiter and Column Names:

  • Delimiter: ,
  • Columns: city_name,county_name

This means that we could use the Keyword as follows in our Content Groups, extracting partial values from each Term using the bracket notation:

Keyword Example Value
{location(city_name)} Birmingham
{location(county_name)} West Midlands
There should be no spaces in the columns field.

Add a Keyword with Automatic Terms

If you have a keyword, but cannot think of a list of Terms / similar words / synonyms to use as Terms for that keyword, Page Generator Pro will attempt to automatically populate the list of Terms for you.

To do this:

  1. Click the Add Keyword button below the title:
    Page Generator Pro: Keywords: Add Keyword Button
  2. Define the following options:
    1. Keyword: the template tag you’ll use when generating Pages / Posts / Custom Post Types.  Use letters, numbers and underscores only – no spaces.
    2. Terms: leave this blank.
    3. Click the Save button

The keyword will then be displayed, along with a list of Terms automatically generated by the plugin:
Page Generator Pro: Keywords: Automatic Terms


Edit a Keyword

  1. Click on the Edit text below the keyword you want to edit:
    Page Generator Pro: Keywords: Edit
  2. Define the following options, as you would when adding a keyword.
  3. Click the Save button
If you try to change a keyword to one that already exists, you’ll receive a warning telling you that the keyword has already been specified. Each keyword must be unique.

Duplicate a Keyword

  1. Click on the Duplicate text below the keyword you want to edit:
    Page Generator Pro: Keywords: Duplicate
  2. The keyword will appear on the list, with _copy appended to it:
    Page Generator Pro: Keywords: Duplication Result
  3. Edit the keyword as necessary to make any changes.
If you try to change a keyword to one that already exists, you’ll receive a warning telling you that the keyword has already been specified. Each keyword must be unique.

Delete a Keyword

Either:

  • Use the checkboxes to the left of the keyword(s) you wish to delete, and then choose Delete from the Bulk Actions dropdown
    Page Generator Pro: Keywords: Bulk Delete
  • Hover the mouse cursor over the keyword, and then click Delete:
