Convoworks WP


Convoworks WP enables you to publish your content and services through voice enabled devices directly from your WordPress website. It is based on the Convoworks, open source PHP framework for conversational service development. It is primarily used through GUI.

Convoworks works in a cross-platform manner. Right now we are focused mostly on the Amazon Alexa enabled devices. Viber, FB Messenger and Web-chat are supported but in an experimental phase.

It is highly customizable meaning that you can add additional components, functions, templates and even platform adapters through your plugin or theme.

Our conversation editor is truly unique on the market. Besides the powerful workflow components ecosystem, Convoworks editor describes conversation through some kind of sitemap making it easier to adopt for web developers.

Who can use this plugin and how?

  • Website owners – With the Convoworks you can create Alexa skills or chatbots using the GUI only. Practically, any webmaster should be able to use it.
  • Agencies – Convoworks is a rapid service development tool. Once you get familiar with it you will be able to deliver voice services to your customers at blazing speeds.
  • Plugin developers – Enhance your plugin with Convoworks custom package. Create specialized components that can utilize your specific data/services and make a couple of predefined service templates that would fit most common needs for your plugin users.

WordPress actions and filters

Now you can handle WordPress hooks with Convoworks no-code editor. Here is how to start.

  1. Start new service and use the “WordPress Hooks Project” template
  2. Navigate to the Configuration view and enable the “WordPress Hooks” platform
  3. Your post titles now will be ucwords

Enabling web chat component

  1. Navigate to the Conviguration view in the desired Convoworks service
  2. Enable “Convo Chat” platform
  3. Use shortcode to display it on the website: [convo_chat service_id=”your-service-id”]

Registering your custom Convoworks package

If you plan to develop your custom Convoworks package you can register it from your theme or plugin like this

 * @param Convo\Core\Factory\PackageProviderFactory $packageProviderFactory
 * @param Psr\Container\ContainerInterface $container
function my_package_registrator( $packageProviderFactory, $container) {
    $packageProviderFactory->registerPackage( new Convo\Core\Factory\FunctionPackageDescriptor('\My\Namespace\MyPackageDefinition',
        function() use ( $container) {
            return new \My\Namespace\MyPackageDefinition( $container->get( 'logger'));
add_action( 'register_convoworks_package', 'my_package_registrator', 10, 2);

الأسئلة المتكررّة

Do I have to have smart speaker to use it

Not required, but it is desirable. You can test your services to some degree in Alexa GUI simulator and Alexa apps, but not all features are available as on real devices.

May I create Alexa skills which are not related to my website data

Yes. Convoworks is not tied to WordPress itself. You can create games for Alexa, fetch information from some external sources or feeds and expose as Alexa skill, whatever you want.

Can I create smart home Alexa skills?

No. We do not support smart home interfaces and we do not plan that in close future.

May I extend my plugin/theme with the Convoworks custom package

Yes. Even if it is a premium one.

Why would I create custom Convoworks package for my plugin/theme

You can create custom components and functions that will allow your conversation services to be simpler to manage.
Inside custom packages you can define service templates which will enable your users to have usable service in no time.

Great! I tried to create an Alexa skill once before and that was a painful experience. With the Convoworks it was completely different. I had my test skill on my Alexa in no time!
