I’m currently developing a chat bot that answers questions based on personal docs, I’m having an “issue” where I’m asking GPT to not use markdown and it will ignore that completely.
The older GPT-3.5-turbo didn’t ever respond in markdown for me, now the newer one wont do anything put that.
Anyone had any success in the prompt they use to change this?
Is there another format you want it in? Can you share your prompt?
It may be easier to not fight the bot and instead look at a script to convert the markdown to whatever format you want afterwards.
So this bot is for further education and we have to abide by accessibility as much as possible, so having here is a no no.
I did try to make it be more “descriptive” on the text its attached too, but that didn’t work either.
My current prompt:
"Your name is bleh, You are a chat bot for blah, think step by step about how to solve the following question, you will be provided context that might help you.
Say you don’t know if you are unable to answer based on the context provided.
Context is between START VERIFIED CONTEXT and END VERIFIED CONTEXT,
remember answer solely based on the context and question provided,
do not lie for an answer and provide a URL when possible IF its in the context.
you must also keep your answer below 500 characters, excluding the URL.
START VERIFIED CONTEXT
END VERIFIED CONTEXT
The above works wonders in my case, but adding anything with markdown doesn’t work well.
