This is just something I thought would be nice while I was restocking my shop just a bit ago.

I regulary buy dozens (or hundreds) of items at at time. Only 5-10 of these go into my shop, the rest go into SDB.

It would be really awesome if the item database could also track items that are in your SDB (would probably have to be manually updated, but that is fine with me). Being able to see at a quick glance something like (X is out of stock, there are 37 in SDB).

At the moment, every time something runs out of stock, I have to go search the SDB to see if I have any...which if a lot of items are out can get tedious at times.

Not super important, but just figured it would be a nice "bonus" to have if you ever get the time happy.

you can try using the "comments feature" for that purpose. It's been brought up a few times but I'm still kinda against it since it will overcomplicate an already fairly complicated app tongue

So I was just thinking about this again and go another idea while browsing another site (I think maybe JellyNeo), but one really nice feature to add would be simply a link from each item to it's SDB search on Neopets.

So if I'm out of stock on "Feed the Skeith Game", there would be a link on that entry that goes directly to http://www.neopets.com/safetydeposit.phtml?obj_name=Feed+the+Skeith+Game

done! i've also included a quick link to the shop wiz but it doesnt seem to be working nicely with chrome.. seems to be ok with firefox though

Our implementation of links going into neopets does require javascript but it's worth it. Makes life a lot easier when jumping between the two sites

that was fast, thanks!

I haven't tested it out yet, but is there a way to link to the Super Shop Wiz as well? Not sure if it's possible but figured I'd ask (not sure if it has it's own link available)

it's not.. the old premium had sniperspace in its own link which makes it possible but the new ssw is basically embedded within every page of the site. Only way would be to recreate the page and that's risky..

The best that we might be able to do is inject some javascript that causes that thing to pop up and have the text copied into the field but probably not worth it

yeah, I don't think it's worth it if it would take that much effort, just figured I'd ask...just being able to get to the SDB so easily now is a huge help!

Just my 2 cents, w/a big ole nose Grin

I am not premium however, I do not believe it links to the SSW in JN, just the SW... Probably for the same reason that Saudor mentioned!

Hugs, Suz Grin
