ChatBot App with Suggestion in PHP/OOP Free Source Code



This simple project is a ChatBot Application with a Suggestion Feature. This is a web-based application project developed in PHP and MySQL Database. This application is a simple ChatBot Application for any site. I developed this application to give new programmers an idea of how to create a ChatBot Feature for their current or future PHP Projects. This was developed with Bootstrap Framework and AdminLTE Template. It consists of simple and user-friendly features and functionalities.

About the ChatBot Application with Suggestion Feature

I developed this project using the following:

  • XAMPP v3.3.0
  • PHP
  • MySQL Database
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • Ajax
  • jQuery
  • Bootstrap
  • Font Awesome
  • AdminLTE

This ChatBot Application with Suggestion Feature can be accessed by the Site Management and the Public. On this application, visitors can simply query anything at the chatbox or conversation box. The system automatically browses a response for the query of the visitors and returns it to the visitor. This project also contains suggestion features. This feature provides suggestion keywords to the visitor or inquirer. Each suggestion is linked to a response. If the response has a list of suggestions keywords, the system will also return the suggestions along with the response. The suggestion feature goal is to provide the inquirer with a possible keyword that is related to the current response. This project has an admin panel where the management can access and manage the responses. The said side requires the users to log in to their system credentials to gain access to the features and functionalities of the Admin Panel. The application also generates a printable report for the responses. The Response Report contains the list of responses with the total number or count of time it was fetched. The list ordered from frequently fetched to least.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. After downloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.

Virus note: All files are scanned once-a-day by for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them.


1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

Hello Oretnom! I am Alexandre, a graduate student at a university in Brazil. I tried emailing you, but it hasn't been delivered. The reason I'm contacting is because I have been assigned the task of creating an online forum, but due to my lack of attention in the previous semester, I am now unable to complete the project as I am not proficient in the required programming languages such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. I came across a project on Sourcecodester that would help me complete my assignment and save my grades. However, the project has a watermark that would make it ineligible for submission, and I am unable to remove it by myself. As this is not for commercial use, but only for my college project, I am wondering if you could assist me with this. I would totally understand if you don't want to help, though. My e-mail is: [email protected] Thanks in advance!
