Thanks for the info.

Although the idea of the commands are similar, I want it to be implemented in 
a different way. The user needs to be able to click on the commands inside 
the conversation window, similar to http links.

Example conversation with a bot:

Tradepost: What can we supply u with today?
1) Tradepost Treasure
2) Videos
3) Games
4) Companions

User: 3

Tradepost: Games
1) The Battle
2) Trivit
b) Back

User: 2


I want the user to be able to click on the text (like a link), instead of 
typing in the number of the command.

Is this possible?
