Why create online tools?

Adding online tools isn’t just following a trend; it’s a game-changer.

You’re not just inviting people to browse; you’re encouraging them to jump into the conversation.

It’s like hosting a virtual chat where your audience isn’t just a spectator but an active participant. I mean, who can resist the charm of a good chat, right?

These tools transform your website from a static space to a buzzing hub of interaction.

Visitors don’t just pass through; they linger, click, and explore. It’s the digital equivalent of inviting friends over for a lively discussion.

So, buckle up, because with these nifty features, your website becomes more than just a destination—it becomes an experience. Get ready to revolutionize the way people engage with your content!

Increased Website Value:

  • Online tools can add significant value to your website by providing practical solutions, information, or entertainment.
  • Useful tools contribute to a positive user experience, making your website a valuable resource for visitors.

Brand Building:

  • Interactive tools help build brand identity and create a memorable user experience.
  • A well-designed tool can reinforce your brand message and make a lasting impression on visitors.

Traffic Generation:

  • Tools that address common problems or needs in your industry can drive organic traffic as users seek solutions.

Data Collection and Analytics:

  • Some online tools allow you to collect valuable user data, providing insights into user behavior and preferences.
  • Analyzing this data can help you make informed decisions to improve your website and better meet the needs of your audience.

Monetization Opportunities:

Ever thought about having special features just for some users? Subscription models are like having different levels, where you pick what you want. It’s not about saying no; it’s about making things special for those who want a bit more.

  • Get money with ads: Imagine lots of people using your tool. Imagine making money when they see ads while using it. That’s ad revenue! It’s like getting a little something extra for having lots of users.
  • Team up with businesses: Your tool isn’t just for regular users; businesses might really like it too. They might want to work together or use your tool with their own name on it. It’s like your tool becoming friends with businesses and helping them out.

SEO Benefits:

  • High-quality, relevant online tools can contribute to better search engine rankings.
  • Search engines often favor websites that provide valuable and unique content, including interactive tools.

Understand The Tool Structure

Creating AI tools on WordPress involves three main steps. Below is a detailed breakdown of how to create this tool:

Create a WordPress page:

Make a new page on your WordPress website where people can use your AI tool. This page is like the control center for interacting with the tool.

Add HTML code:

Insert some basic HTML code into the page. This code is like the starting point for talking to the OpenAI system.

Connect to the OpenAI API:

Your WordPress function will talk to OpenAI’s system to generate text based on what the user enters. It’s like your website and OpenAI having a conversation to make things happen.

In simpler terms, you’re setting up a special page on your WordPress site where people can use your AI tool. The page has some code that helps your website talk to OpenAI and get responses based on what users type in. It’s like a team effort between your website and OpenAI to make cool things with text!

Get an OpenAI API Key:

To use OpenAI’s cool stuff, you need a special key. Here’s how to get it:

  • Visit OpenAI’s API Page: Go to OpenAI’s website and find the API page. Look for a button that says “Signup.”
  • Make an Account: Click that button, and they’ll ask you to make an account. It’s like creating a username and password. They might also send you an email to make sure it’s really you.
  • Verify your email : Open the email they sent you and click on the link inside. This is just to make sure you’re a real person.
  • Find your API key: After all that, log in to your new account. You’ll see a dashboard (like a control center). Look around, and you’ll find your special key there. That’s the key to the cool OpenAI stuff!

Create an AI Image Generator with WordPress

Step 1: Set Up with “WP Code” Plugin

Let’s kick things off by installing the “WP Code” plugin on your WordPress site.

Head over to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the “Plugins” section, and search for “WP Coder.”

Install and activate the plugin to get the ball rolling.

Step 2: Sprinkle Some Code Magic

Now that you have the “WP Coder” plugin in action, it’s time to add the magic ingredients: HTML, CSS, and JS.

Open “wp coder

click “add new”

To make things easier for my reader, I have included the entire working script. Just copy and paste the code in “wp coder.”

        if (!response.ok) {
            throw new Error(`HTTP error! Status: ${response.status}`);
        }
        return response.json();
    })
    .then(data => {
        // Log the API response to the console for debugging
        console.log('API Response:', data);

        // Extract image URLs from the 'data' key
        const imageUrls = data?.data?.map(variant => variant?.url);

        // Display the generated images in the outputDiv
        if (imageUrls && imageUrls.length > 0) {
            outputDiv.innerHTML = imageUrls.map(url => generateImageHTML(url)).join('');
        } else {
            outputDiv.innerHTML = 'Error: Unable to find the generated image URLs in the response.';
        }
    })
    .catch(error => {
        // Log and display an error message if the API request fails
        console.error('Error:', error);
        outputDiv.innerHTML = 'Error: Unable to fetch the generated images. Check the console for more details.';
    })
    .finally(() => {
        // Hide the loading spinner when the operation is complete (success or error)
        loaderContainer.style.display = 'none';
    });
}

// Function to generate HTML code for displaying images
function generateImageHTML(url) {
    return `
        <div class="result-image">
            <img src="${url}" alt="Generated Image" class="preview-image">
            <button class="download-button" onclick="downloadImage('${url}', '1024x1024')">Download 1024x1024</button>
        </div>`;
}

// Function to download the generated image
function downloadImage(url, size) {
    // Create a temporary link element
    const link = document.createElement('a');
    link.href = url;

    // Set the appropriate download attribute based on the selected size
    link.download = `generated_image_${size}.png`;

    // Append the link to the document
    document.body.appendChild(link);

    // Trigger a click event on the link to initiate the download
    link.click();

    // Remove the link from the document
    document.body.removeChild(link);
}
  1. generateImage() Function:
    • This function is called when the “Generate Image” button is clicked.
    • It collects the user’s input (prompt), shows a loading spinner, and then contacts the OpenAI server to get an image based on the input.
    • Once the image is received, it displays the image on the webpage, or shows an error message if something goes wrong.
    • Finally, it hides the loading spinner.
  2. generateImageHTML(url) Function:
    • This function takes a URL (web address) of a generated image and creates the HTML code needed to display the image on the webpage.
    • It also includes a button to download the image.
  3. downloadImage(url, size) Function:
    • This function is called when the user clicks the download button.
    • It creates a temporary link, sets the download attributes based on the image size, appends the link to the document, triggers a click event to start the download, and then removes the link.

These functions work together to make the webpage interactive. When you type a prompt, click the “Generate Image” button, and then you can download the generated images.


Step 3: Craft Your Tool Page

Now that we have our code function ready, let’s create a new page on our WordPress site where we can add our AI Image Generator tool.

We’ll be using the WordPress Editor to make work simple. or you can use Elementor, a popular WordPress page builder, to create the page.

Once you have created your tool page, click on add block and choose “Short Code.”

just paste the short code generated by “Wp Coder.

Save your page!

After you’ve inserted your code, simply click on ‘Update’ to ensure your changes are saved.

Great job! At this point, you have successfully established a page for your AI tool(AI image generator) and included the essential HTML components.

The following step will be to link this page to our OpenAI API function.

Step 4: Connect The Page With The API Function

Now, let’s get your tool talking to the OpenAI API. In a nutshell, it’s like teaching your tool to communicate with the smart brains at OpenAI.

First, grab your API key from OpenAI. Follow this steps.

Go to Open AI, sign up and navigate to API keys.

Click Create New Secret Key.

Give a name to your key.

copy the secret key and paste in script (JS)

const apiKey = ‘ YOUR-API-KEY ‘; // Replace with your actual API key

Click save and publish.

Now your AI image generator is ready to go!!


Optimizing Our Tool

Once our tool is operational, the journey doesn’t end there; it’s time for optimization.

This involves refining the user interface (UI) and implementing security measures such as captcha.

A compelling aspect of modern AI, like ChatGPT, lies in its adaptability and versatility.

For example, you can task ChatGPT with optimizing code, enhancing the user interface, or modifying various aspects of the tool.

Suppose you wish to revamp the UI of your tool. Simply express this to ChatGPT, like:

“Hey, could you assist me in designing a more streamlined and professional interface for my tool?”

ChatGPT will offer suggestions or even generate an entirely new set of HTML and CSS code tailored to your specifications.

Integrating a security measure like Captcha can be a significant upgrade, safeguarding your tool from bots and ensuring genuine user interactions. Numerous plugins and online resources are available to seamlessly add Captcha to your WordPress site.

Lastly, keep in mind that continuous optimization and responsiveness to user feedback are key factors in making your tool more user-friendly and successful.
