In this tutorial, I explain how to add a chatbot to your website using the Dialogflow Messenger integration.
Create the Dialogflow intents
First, create a new Dialogflow agent and add all your intents.
If you are not familiar with Dialogflow ES, check out my step-by-step guide which also includes the agent ZIP files for each lesson.
These agent ZIP files are like “templates” which you can import into your own Dialogflow account.
Embed the chat widget into your website
Once you have created all your intents, you can add it into your website.
Embedding the chat widget into your website is straight-forward.
Add the script to your web page
Once you create your Dialogflow ES agent, 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 prompt at the bottom right of your web page.
Now click on the chat prompt message, and you should see something like this.
