On a break inKitely Plaza Cafe.jpg
Just taking a break. The furniture placement in the Blogger's cafe is coming along great.

QUESTION: Anyone know a solution to making a directory of blogs available in Kitely? Can the selections be read from a online Google spreadsheet?

Maria Korolov had an article about bringing outside data into OpenSim with a Google spreadsheet

For blogs I think you could simplify the process using just media on a prim.

Thanks for the info. Dennis Albion mentioned that Hypergrid Business article to me. He was excited about its implications.

The media on a prim is one way to go - but it has been my experience that it is glitchy for some. Something that works like a HUD that people can push buttons and get pop ups of screen that show an image of the blog and a blurb about it. Then they can choose to touch the screen and get the link to the blog.

as blady commented, MOAP is buggy on some grids, and not at all on the backwards inworldz grid, but this first script works on all others I have used it on who are with current opensim code development.

Code: Select all

//This script loads an image from the web on all surfaces of the prim and refreshes the image every 600 seconds, just in case it changes. When clicked, the prim leads to a website.

default
{
   state_entry()
   {
       llSetTimerEvent(600.0);
   }
   on_rez(integer total_number)
   {
     string  dynamicID="";
     integer refreshRate = 600;
     string  contentType="image";
     string srcURL = "insert full url to image"; // URL
     string URLTexture=osSetDynamicTextureURL(dynamicID, contentType ,srcURL  , "", refreshRate ); 
     if (llStringLength(URLTexture)>0) 
      {
        llSay(0,"URLTexture = "+URLTexture);
        llSetTexture(URLTexture, ALL_SIDES);
      }
  }
  timer() 
  {
     string  dynamicID="";
     integer refreshRate = 600;
     string  contentType="image";
     string srcURL = "insert full url to image"; // URL
     string URLTexture=osSetDynamicTextureURL(dynamicID, contentType ,srcURL  , "", refreshRate ); 
     if (llStringLength(URLTexture)>0) 
      {
        llSay(0,"URLTexture = "+URLTexture);
        llSetTexture(URLTexture, ALL_SIDES);
      }
   } 
       touch_start(integer total_number)
    {
        llLoadURL(llDetectedKey(0), "More information about Region Creations", "http://minethere.blogspot.com/2012/10/region-creations.html");
    }
}

and a simple url giver on click [in case you don't have one]

Code: Select all

// Thishan Dezno
// 21-06-2012

string url = "http://minethere.blogspot.com/2012/10/region-creations.html";
string desc = "Region Creations Blog";

default{
    state_entry(){}
    touch_start(integer total_number){
        llLoadURL(llDetectedKey(0), desc, url);
    }
}

I would like to clear up some mis-conceptions about the Kitely Plaza.

The 4-region telehub is not an commercial endeavor. None of us were paid to do any of the work here. The galleries and fashion runways are free for all residents to use. The mall spots go to the merchants that register with the online marketplace. The classes offered there are free as are all of the events, including Live performance. All is sponsored by Kitely Worlds Management. The entire endeavor is to promote community within Kitely.

Also, Dennis Albion was nice enough to come over here from Second Life and create all of the scripted devices we need to make the Plaza function for the visitors and the Kitely volunteer teams. He is currently scripting a HUD for greeters. When a person enters the telehub It displays the visitors name and Kitely age. Greeters will be able to be in any Kitely World and know when to go to the plaza to greet.

Hi Blady,

When you say "it's not a commercial endeavor"...I am definitely confused. It's a shopping center, right? I have not been paying attention so pardon my ignorance. I was under the impression that the online Marketplace and the inworld Plaza were somehow connected. Is the "4-region telehub" different than the shopping area?

Don't get me wrong, I'm looking forward to shops coming in and I'm planning to be there to spend my hard-earned KC$. :)
