SmartBots Blog May 16, 2012 by Glaznah Gassner

The completely new, brand and unique tool has been launched by SmartBots: WebTalk. This tool allows you to connect your web activity with Second Life, and allow your web visitors reading and talking in your Second Life group.

Web visitors authenticate themselves using Google, Facebook or Twitter account. Thus, logging to Second Life is not required at all. WebTalk remembers the SL name of the Ā authenticated person and will use it next time automatically.

  1. Love the new features that you are working on. Just had to upgrade and install on my website. :)

  2. The code generated doesn’t work … and doesn’t look right to me. Or it could be the fact that I’m using WordPress, but the code looks incomplete to me. For example, how does it know which group to pull chat for? And the first tag is unidentified?

    var sbc_width = 400;
    var sbc_height = 40;
    var sbc_id = 43;

    SL group chat is powered by SmartBots WebTalk

  3. $lt;script$gt;
    var sbc_width = 400;
    var sbc_height = 40;
    var sbc_id = 43;
    $lt;script src=””$gt;$lt;/script$gt;
    $lt;div id=”SmartBotsWebChat”$lt;$lt;/div
    $lt;div>$lt;small$lt;$lt;a href=””$gt;SL group chat is powered by SmartBots WebTalk$lt;/a$lt;$lt;/small$gt;$lt;/div$gt;

    Thank you! We will keep adding new features :]


    1. The group is being identified by sbc_id variable, you get it within with your code

    2. I’m not sure if WordPress allows inserting plain HTML code with scripts to the page. Did you tried putting the code to the HTML source of the page?
