For example, insert this shortcode into an article, page, or widget where you want to display the search form.

  2. Navigate to "Loco Translate"> "Plugins" in the WordPress dashboard.

  5. Save your changes when the translation is complete.

6: Configure keywords to filter content

On the extension's configuration page, you potentially define keywords to filter content and searches based on your business needs. Thus, the search results will be filtered according to the specified keywords, ensuring that the results are relevant and appropriate for your target audience.

Other Important Elements

This section will explain how to generate the ChatGPT API key and other configuration elements.

ChatGPT (OpenAI) API key:

To generate the ChatGPT (OpenAI) API key and the organization key, you must follow the steps below: a. Create an OpenAI account. To use the ChatGPT API, you must first register on the OpenAI website. That said, go to https://beta.openai.com/signup/ and create an account. b. Log in to your account. Once you have created an account, log in and access the OpenAI API dashboard. c. Generate the API key. In the dashboard, you will see an "API Keys" section. Click the "Create API key" button to generate a new API key. Finally, copy this key. You will need it to configure the WordPress extension.

Organization key

The free version of ChatGPT has minimal features. Indeed, with this version, you have only a limited number of requests. Moreover, the size of the text you can generate is limited. Therefore, we recommend that you subscribe to the company version of ChatGPT. In this case, you must provide your company data and banking information. The offer is beautiful. According to our analyses, the costs per result are relatively low. To help you save on requests, we automatically keep the information generated in the WordPress database. This allows your audience to access previous users' search content. You can visit the pricing page to find out what fees are to pay for each use.

How to generate captcha v3?

Google reCAPTCHA v3 is a free service that protects your website from spam and abuse by checking that users are human, not robots. Therefore, to generate and integrate Google reCAPTCHA v3 on your site, follow these steps:
  1. Access the reCAPTCHA site: go to the Google reCAPTCHA website at https://www.google.com/recaptcha/.
  2. Sign in to your Google account: sign in with your Google account. However, if you do not have a Google account, you can create one for free.
  3. Register your site: once logged in, click on the "Admin Console" button at the top right of the page. On the "Register a new site" page, fill in the following information:
    • "Label": enter a name to identify your site in the administration console.
    • "reCAPTCHA type": select "reCAPTCHA v3".
    • "Domains": enter the domain names of your website where you want to use reCAPTCHA v3 (e.g. mysite.com).
    • "Owners": check your email address and add more owners if needed.
    • Finally, accept the terms of use and click "Submit."
  4. Get your site key and secret key: once you have registered your site, you will receive a site key and a private key. The site key will be used in the HTML code of your website, while the secret key will be used to verify the reCAPTCHA responses with the Google API.
