Overview

Page Generator Pro is a mass page builder Plugin.  It is designed to mass generate content from one or more content templates that you define.

Terminology

Keywords

Keywords can be seen as template tags, with each Keyword comprising of one or more Terms.

For example, if you are building a web site advertising a business’ plumbing services, you might have a keyword called service, describing the services that the plumbing business offers. Its terms could be:

  • bathroom installations
  • fixing leaks
  • central heating installation

There’s no limit to the number of terms a Keyword can have.

Content Groups

Content Groups can be seen as content templates, from which your Pages, Posts or Custom Post Types are generated.

Within your Content Groups, you can specify your Keywords.  For example, the Title might be {service}.

Content Groups closely follow the editorial experience of your WordPress Pages and Posts, with each Content Group containing a Title, Content, Excerpt and other relevant fields.

There’s no limit to the number of Keywords that a Content Group can have.

Generate

Generate, or generation, is the process where Page Generator Pro takes a given Content Group, and generates all unique variations as WordPress Pages, Posts or Custom Post Types (depending on the settings specified in the Content Group).

In our service example, this would produce three Pages, titled:

  • Bathroom Installations
  • Fixing Leaks
  • Central Heating Installation
