Administration (Admin User)
To make the system functional, you must integrate the OpenAI API. Additionally, you need to incorporate an email provider for sending system emails such as sign up, email verification, etc. Moreover, you must add an email auto-responder profile to synchronize user emails. Finally, to receive payments, you need to integrate payment method APIs.
Here we will show you how to integrate third-party APIS with SMB Soup.
We will also demonstrate other administrative tools like template management, user/role management, general settings, cron settings, landing page settings and multi-lingual editor.
As you may be aware, these tools are based on OpenAI's content generation technology. This powerful AI platform can generate many types of content. We have included the most popular, useful, and important content templates for your convenience. However, the potential of OpenAI is limitless. You can add your own templates and use them to generate custom content.
To add a template group, you only need to provide a group name. You can also add an icon class for the group using FontAwesome or MaterialIcon. The groups will be listed in order of priority based on their serial number, with lower numbers having higher priority.
First, you need to choose the API type from Text, Code, Image, and Speech-to-Text.
The Text API type is useful for generating textual content such as blogs, articles, titles, headers, etc. While the Text API can generate code, we use a special model specifically optimized for code writing, as recommended by OpenAI.
For your convenience, we have grouped all the AI models provided by OpenAI and linked them with API types. To use these models, all you have to do is select an API type and an AI model from the list.
The prompt intro text is a crucial field and is required for training OpenAI's models. The AI model will read this text to gain an understanding of your desired content. It serves as the foundation for the model's training data and is essential for generating accurate and relevant content.
You can also include custom parameters to help the AI model better understand your query. When a user utilizes this template, they can fill in the parameters with their respective values. This can help to provide more specific and accurate results tailored to the user's needs.
User & Team Manager
As previously mentioned, the extended license of this app includes a multi-user platform, unlocking a range of features relevant to SaaS businesses. One of these features is the User Manager, which allows users to sign up directly or for the admin to manage users from the panel. Team Users are not separate users, but rather an additional instance of an admin login that can perform specific tasks on behalf of the admin. In contrast, the SaaS version allows the admin to have team members and end-users to have team users as well.
Managing users and teams involves enabling or disabling logins, as well as editing and deleting users or teams. The process for adding users or teams is quite similar, with the form requiring a name, email, and package/role. However, for users, an additional value called an expiry date is necessary, which specifies the date after which they can no longer use the feature. Teams, on the other hand, do not have an expiry date.
Package & Role Manager
The pricing table displays the package or subscription plan which users can purchase and use the app for a specified duration. On the other hand, the role is the access level for team users.
Managing packages and roles involves editing and deleting tasks. Adding packages or roles involves a similar process, where the access level needs to be specified in the form. However, for subscription packages, additional information such as package price and validity period is required. You can also specify discount for a subscription package.
The text generation module of the package refers to the number of tokens that a user can utilize for text generation within a specified monthly period. You can think of tokens as pieces of words used for natural language processing. For English text, 1 token is approximately 4 characters or 0.75 words. As a point of reference, the collected works of Shakespeare are about 900,000 words or 1.2M tokens.
The image generation module is quantified by the number of images/month that can be generated, while the speech-to-text module is measured in terms of minutes/month.
On this page, you have the option to configure all the settings required for the application to function properly.
Set your brand name,logo, favicon and preference (locale,timezone)
The application will display your brand and operate according to the locale and timezone that you specify. Additionally, the app offers RTL language support based on the locale you select, with RTL mode activating automatically. As for example, if you choose `Arabic`, the app will turn on RTL mode.
AI API Integration

Email settings will be used for several system emails like sign up, email verification, password reset etc.
By default, the application will utilize the PHP mail function for sending emails until you provide your own email profile. If you do not intend to add a custom profile, please ensure that your PHP mail is functioning correctly. You have the option to include multiple email profiles and designate a default profile, informing the app which profile you prefer to use.

Analytics Scripts Integration
The Facebook Pixel is a code snippet that is added to your website, which enables you to track conversions, optimize ads, and build targeted audiences for your Facebook advertising campaigns. The Pixel collects data on user behavior, such as page views, purchases, and sign-ups, and then uses this information to improve the performance of your Facebook ads.
Similarly, Google Analytics code is a tracking code that is added to your website to provide insights into user behavior and website performance. This code allows you to monitor website traffic, measure user engagement, and identify areas for improvement in your website design and content. With Google Analytics, you can gain valuable insights into your audience and optimize your website for maximum engagement and conversion.
Overall, both Facebook Pixel and Google Analytics code are powerful tools that can help businesses make data-driven decisions to improve their online presence and drive revenue.
To begin tracking your website visitors with Facebook Pixel or Google Analytics, simply add the code (not the full JS scipt only ID) provided by the respective platform. Once the code is added, the analytics script will be automatically loaded on your app landing page, allowing you to start gathering valuable data on your website traffic and user behavior. With this information, you can make informed decisions about your marketing strategy and optimize your website to improve engagement and drive conversions.
Cron Job Commands
A cron job, also known as a cron schedule or cron task, is a command or script that is scheduled to run automatically at specified intervals on a Unix-based operating system. Cron jobs are commonly used for automating repetitive tasks such as data backups, database maintenance, and file system cleanup. The intervals for running these tasks can be set in minutes, hours, days, weeks, or months, allowing for precise control over when they occur. Cron jobs are executed by the Cron daemon, a background service that constantly monitors the system clock and checks for scheduled tasks to run. When a scheduled task is detected, the Cron daemon executes the associated command or script.
This system needs cron job to manage PayPal subscription api calls (extended license only) and to free-up storaged junk data on server periodically.
This is how you can setup cron job in cpanel
