Linking a vendor to Kitely Market

Post by Christine Nyn »

I had a query which I have no good answer for, so I'm asking if anyone can shed any light on what may be possible here...
I heard there are ways to do vendors so that they link to your Kitely listing. Is that just the vendor sending out a url on a blue dialog box so they can log in on their browser?
It would certainly be a neat idea if an owner's vendors could automatically stay in step with their Kitely Market offerings.

Hi Christine,

Please visit the Merchants Showcase area of Kitely Welcome Center, it uses a system we developed that automatically displays products from Kitely Market stores and links to them so that you can click a product image and it will offer to open that listing in your browser so you'll be able to add it to your Kitely Market shopping cart. This system isn't for sale but it wasn't very hard to develop and I'm sure you'll be able to program one of your own that does the same.

Yes, a simple URL pointer script will do it. Nice pic, URL of the marketplace listing, script in the prim or animesh or whatever, done.
There's one around somewhere that that reads the URL from the description line - I don't have it handy right now but any good scripter can make one in a few seconds (cuz I watched one do it lol).
The other handy thing is we can take these vendors anywhere in the OpenSim grids and they work. Festivals, OSCC display, shops in other grids, it's all good. If your item is exportable, that is.
