Your First Chatbot

Let’s build your first chatbot ever!

Welcome to the exciting world of AI Engine! This user-friendly documentation is designed to help you seamlessly set up your first chatbot. Let's walk through the process step by step, making it easy for you to understand and get started.

How does AI Engine work?

It's a good idea to first understand what the plugin does. Using AI services directly by yourself can be quite overwhelming and frustrating if you don't have the right technical skills, and even more troublesome if you want to build your own WordPress integration over it. 💻

Think of the AI Engine as a pre-made dashboard that lets you plug in all the AI services you need into a convenient, already-made panel, so you don't have to build these features yourself. 🤖

The plugin itself doesn't contain AI models, nor does it provide you with AI-generated content. Instead, it connects to external services and handles all the communication and fetching for you to retrieve this data seamlessly. 🔌

So, most of the time, if you experience issues with the content you get, this isn't on the plugin – it's coming from the AI models themselves. 🤔

Installation and Dashboard Access

After installing the plugin, you gain access to a dashboard where you can tailor settings, enable/disable features, and manage your chatbots.

Upon entering, a prominent red warning signals the need to link AI Engine with your OpenAI account. AI Engine relies on OpenAI services, so connect your account and ensure accurate billing details to avoid any errors. Learn more about this here.

Setting Up Your OpenAI Account

Login to your OpenAI account, generate a new API Key, and paste it in the “Settings” tab of AI Engine under the “Environments for AI” API Key field.

Congratulations! You are now ready to have an AI Chatbot on your website.

Before using it, make sure you have your OpenAI account funded properly. You can read this documentation: You exceeded your current quota (

Exploring the Chatbots Tab

Visit the “Chatbots” tab to find the automatically created “Default” chatbot. Test it by sending a message in the chat on the right side to experience what your users will see.

Displaying the Chatbot on Your Website

To make the chatbot visible on your website, you have two options:

  • Site-Wide Feature: Enables a pop-up icon (bottom right by default) on all pages and posts.
  • Shortcode: Use the provided shortcode by copying and pasting it into a shortcode block on your desired page. The shortcode can be found in the top-left corner of the "Chatbots" tab.
