      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.

      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.
