How to Integrate an OpenAI Assistant into Your Website with the Kognetiks Chatbot for WordPress Plugin

Introduction

Integrating an OpenAI assistant into your WordPress website can enhance user interaction by providing automated, intelligent responses to inquiries, and more.  This short guide outlines how to create an OpenAI assistant and incorporate it into your site using the Kognetiks Chatbot for WordPress plugin.

Step 1: Create Your OpenAI Assistant

  1. Start by Creating an Assistant:
    • Visit the OpenAI platform at OpenAI Assistants.
    • Click the “Create” button in the upper right corner.
    • Enter a name for your assistant and specify the instructions it should follow, i.e., the purpose of the assistant.  For instance, if your assistant will handle financial queries, mention that it should only comment on “financials”.
    • Select the OpenAI model.  It’s recommended to use the latest model for optimal performance, such as gpt-4-turbo-2024-04-09, but there are other choices.  A full list of the models and their capabilities can be found in the OpenAI documentation.
    • Upload any helper files your assistant might need, such as pricing sheets, information and specification sheets, and the like.
  2. Saved As You Go:
    • The assistant should save your work as you go.  You can check that it has saved any changes you make by examining the update date/time in the lower left corner of the assistant.

Step 2: Test Your Assistant

  • Testing in Playground:
    • Before integration with your website, test your assistant in the OpenAI Playground to ensure it responds accurately to the type of queries it will encounter on your website.  You can access the Playground by clicking the button in the upper right corner.
    • Copy the identifier for the assistant, as it will be required for integration.  It will appear in the format asst_tQ0mw62OFCVNUiX6yxZ2N9Tz.  This is your assistant id.
