    Thanks guys that was helpful! So I wanted to add this Bot to my WordPress Blog, but the Web Chat does not work. Is it because it's still in Preview (as some of the other Channels do not work either), could it be a regional availability thing or am I just not capable?

    @Alex I just tested out embedding a web chat and it seems to work. What specifically are you having trouble with? Does it show up at all on your page?

    Hi anthonychu, I am cant find any js file in bot service. Also when I type hi in console get an error "Sorry, my bot code is having an issue."
    and in the log Exception while executing function: Functions.messages. mscorlib: The given key was not present in the dictionary.

    Great Video. I been watching the bot videos from Tod Morgan and now this one. What is the next logical step video example wise? Getting started building a working bot? I did not try your example yet, I did all the steps in Tod's videos and everything is working.

    hey my bot throwing this message "sorry my bot code is having an issue"
    can you please suggest me how can I handle this issue?

    This tutorial is great. Unfortunately after following all the steps, the bot doesn't respond to me and nothing I can do gets the bot to respond. I think there might be a bug with this wizard setup.

    Can LUIS be trained to understand sentences and concepts in eg Danish, even though the language is not supported?

  • User profile image

    OK, so how do I embed a Microsoft bot onto my WordPress site?

    I am trying to set up a chat-bot with LUIS and Bot framework. I have a set of FAQs and I want the bot to get those in as knowledge base and answer the user. Does it automatically extract the intents and entities? How do I give the FAQs as input?

    PS. I have tried QnA maker before. It has file inputs and URL inputs where it pulls question-answer pairs. I want to try LUIS now.

    So, How do I feed in data from files or URL to LUIS as Knowledge base?

    Amazing! great video. I wonder why the bot did not reply "You asked for weather" instead it just spit out the score?
