How to install a ChatGPT AI Chatbot for WordPress
Have you ever wished you could create a chatbot for your WordPress site without any coding skills?
What if you could add a chatbot powered by GPT-3, the most advanced AI language model as of today, to your WordPress website in minutes? Do you want to boost your traffic, engagement, and conversions with the power of GPT-3?
If you answered yes, then you need to read on our blog post.
We will show you how to install and use ChatGPT as a Chatbot for your WordPress Site by using a simple Plugin. The whole installation does not take longer than perhaps 5 minutes.
Meowapp is a plugin that provides GPT-3 Tools and a ChatGPT Chatbot for WordPress. It was created by Jordy Meow, a software engineer and photographer based in Tokyo. With his plugin you can easily create ChatGPT chatbots, generate AI content for your pages and posts, optimize SEO, and much more. A chatbot uses artificial intelligence to simulate human conversation with website visitors. It’s a useful alternative to live chat, which can be costly and not very time efficient.
What is Meowapp AI Engine?
Meowapp AI Engine Plugin uses OpenAI Language Model GPT-3, which is a powerful AI language model that can generate natural and engaging responses. It uses a machine learning technique called the Natural Language Processing (NLP) model. It enables computers to understand, interpret, and generate human language.
The Plugin exist in a free and a Pro Version, the price for the Pro Version depends on the amount of websites you want to use it – for one website it costs $29. The majority of features are available in the free version – so you first should check out if it suits your needs.
We had the chance to use the free version 1.3.47.
You can download it directly from the WordPress Plugin Store under the name “AI Engine” or from the developers’ website. The developer is updating almost every day and has more than 4000 active installations, no review worse than five stars.
It should work with any theme or plugin. With a simple shortcode, you’ll be able to add your chatbot to any page or post on your site. You can also look at your chatbot’s analytics and see how it’s doing right from your WordPress dashboard. Change your chatbot’s name, avatar, personality, tone, and style, no problem. You can also choose from pre-made behavior templates or make your own.
How to install ChatGPT into WordPress?
In order to use the ChatGPT plugin, you first need a free OpenAI Account. If you don’t have any, your very first step is to create it at https://beta.openai.com/signup. The Plugin needs a so-called API Secret Key to connect securely to ChatGPT.
After creating your account, you just need to head over to your “API Keys” and get a new API Secret Key. Copy it into the clipboard.
Next step is to paste your API Key into the Settings of the Plugin.
ChatGpt Chatbot Settings and Enabling
You can now set different behaviour settings for your Chatbot like its Name, how it is greeting your visitors and its Avatar.
You can also choose a specialized language model for your ChatBot that OpenAi has made available, such as text-Davinci-003 or text-Curie-001 for example.
Maximum Token Limit
Setting a maximum token limit further helps ensure that users don’t accidentally or purposefully consume all available tokens. As of the time this blog post was written, OpenAI gives you a maximum of 4,000 tokens when you first sign up. After you use them all up, OpenAI will charge you a few cents for every 1,000 tokens after that. About 75 English words are approximately 100 tokens. For more information, please see the OpenAI help article “What are tokens?“.
Logging the Chatbot
Given that there is currently no way to monitor the Chatbot’s conversation in real time, you can choose whether or not the plugin logs all Input and Output of the Chatbots under Features/Logs.
Make sure that any tracking or logging you do on your WordPress website complies with the laws of the countries from which your users originate. For European Union members, GDPR compliance is mandatory. In a broader sense, it’s critical to protect people’s privacy. You should give your visitors advance notice if you plan to investigate their claims or actions.
Enabling the WordPress AI Chatbot
If you are okay with what you have selected you only need to enable the Inject ChatBot in the entire Website Box and most likely you want to integrate it as a Popup, too.
If you prefer adding the ChatBot only to certain WordPress Sites – no problem! You can add a single Shortcode [mwai chat] in order to activate the bot onto your pages.
Creating AI Content within WordPress
A word of warning: Copying and pasting automatic generated text without further modifications is useless in nine out of ten situations because AI generated content is against Google’s Webmaster Guidelines and usually get marked as spam.
In any case, the plugin makes it possible to produce content or at least topic ideas without ever leaving the WordPress dashboard. This can be especially useful if you have to write dozens of product descriptions for a WooCommerce Shop.
You can predefine topic, title, sections, language and the writing style and tone the text should be written (professional, informative, persuasive etc. pp.). ChatGPT will generate you the desired content within a couple of seconds.
Fine Tuning your Own ChatGPT Model
It is even possible to fine tune the Language Model the plugin will use for your ChatBot. In order to do so, you can generate your own data set based on the davinci-003 model. In theory, you can create your own ChatGPT model using your own data and preferences.
The process is simple and involves the following steps:
- Gather all the necessary data and format it correctly
- Upload the data to OpenAI in JSONL format
- Train an existing OpenAI model with your data
- Obtain your own fine-tuned model
The AI Engine plugin makes the process relatively easy, if you want to create your own fine tuned language model based on ChatGPT I recommend following the tutorial How To: Fine-tune or Train an AI model for your WordPress ChatBot.
It is easy to integrate a ChatBot using OpenAI Language Models in the style of ChatGPT into WordPress. It only takes a few minutes with the Meowapp plugin and you’re ready to go—even in the free version.
The plugin provides great help for creating content ideas, the Chatbots capabilities are impressive and it is unquestionably an excellent method of keeping visitors on your website.
Nevertheless, you should have a keen eye on your token balance and set a maximum limit within the plugin but also within OpenAI itself.
