    Hi there...

    I was just wondering how to stop the combined answers from E.
    Sometimes I input something and it answers(example):

    I don't know what you talking about (line break)
    Do you like Star Trek?

    I took a look in the php code, but could not find
    the place where the random additional phrase comes

    Any help is appreciated!

      This is not a feature of Program E, but the loaded AIML set. The AIML (XML) consist out of template input patterns and their respective standard answers. It is possible for an answer to reference another input pattern's answer, and combine as the ultimate response send back to the user.

      Most likely you're using one of the standard AIML sets (read bot brains) and I know that one of them has a random question generator. Find all references to this AIML category and you will have disabled the questions being added. Another way would be to empty that particular category of it's contents. But I leave that up to you.

      Kind regards,

      Thank you very much for the reply.
      This clarifies my mind.
