What is Chat?

Chat offers a search feature where users can ask questions and receive answers through a chat interface, typically powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and natural language processing (NLP) technologies. Chat-based search can be implemented on various platforms, including mobile apps, web browsers, and messaging apps. With chat-based search, users can ask questions in a conversational style, using natural language. The AI-powered system then analyzes the question, understands the context and intent, and generates a response with a list of products that best suit the user's query in a human-like manner. The system can also learn from the user's behavior and preferences and improve its responses over time.

How can chat search be triggered?

Zevi provides two options to trigger chat:

  1. By clicking on the chat icon
  2. Using a custom HTML selector

What is an HTML selector?

An HTML selector is a string of characters used to identify and target specific HTML elements on a webpage. Selectors are used in conjunction with CSS to style and format webpages, and they can be based on a variety of attributes, such as class, ID, or element type. The most commonly used HTML selector is the class selector, which targets all elements with a specific class attribute. Selectors play a crucial role in web development, allowing developers to create engaging and dynamic webpages.

How do you get an HTML selector?

To get an HTML selector, you need to identify the HTML element that you want to target on a webpage. You can do this by using your web browser's "Inspect" tool, which allows you to view the website's HTML and CSS code. Once you've identified the element you want to target, you can use the appropriate selector syntax to select it. For example, to target all elements with a specific class, you can use a class selector with a period (.) followed by the class name (e.g., ".example-class"). Similarly, to target a specific element type, you can use an element selector (e.g., "p" for paragraphs or "h1" for headings). With the appropriate selector, you can modify the HTML and CSS code to customize the appearance and behavior of the website. Click here to learn more.
