What we will be building
The video below shows what we will be building in this tutorial.
Embed the chat widget into your website
Embedding the chat widget into your website is straight-forward.
Create your Dialogflow agent
Create a new Dialogflow agent, and remove the Welcome event from the Default Welcome Intent.
Add a new intent into your agent with the following information (note that it includes the Welcome event).
Add the script to your web page
Once you create your welcome intent, go to the Integrations pane, and select the Dialogflow Messenger integration.
Now copy the script into your clipboard.
Paste the script you copied into the <head> tag of your HTML page.
In that case, use a plugin like Insert Headers and Footers and add the script into the “Scripts in Header” section.
WordPress Gutenberg Update
With the release of Gutenberg, you can now simply add HTML code blocks directly into a page. So add a HTML block in Gutenberg and paste the script you copied from the Dialogflow console directly into the editor.
Test the integration
When you open the page in your browser, you will now see the chat widget at the bottom right of your web page.
Now click on the welcome message, and you should see the below.
