Hi all,

 

Remember we were getting wrong listings with the previous Marketplace migration? Where pictures/descriptions from other merchants were placed on our items or vice versa? Which Linden Lab still didn't fix after the many JIRA's we filed.

 

I was hoping with this new migration that they would automatically disappear, but unfortunately it  didn't. But after reading how VMM exactly works I came up with an idea to try something out and it actualy worked! I'll try to explain step by step what I did, hopefully it's clear enough and will work for others as well.

 

1. I created a box, called it 'object object' and took it to my inventory. 

2. I right clicked on the item and choose "Copy to Marketplace Listings", it now appeared under the Unassociated tab of the Marketplace Listings window.

3. I went to my Marketplace store, and right click on the name of the item to be removed and chose Copy Link. I now had this link https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/*Itemnametoberemoved*/1427569. 

4. I went back to my Unassociated listings tab and right clicked on the folder "object object" and chose 'Associate listing' and filled in the (ID)number 1427569 (which was at the end of the link I just had copied).

5. I went back to my Marketplace store, clicked on the item and I was able to go to the item page! (Jumping in the air here! Cause before that I would be directed to Marketplace homepage). I clicked on Revise to see what happened, it brought me, as it would with normal listings, to the page where I can edit the item. Now knowing that I could edit that listing I went to Manage Listings at Merchant Home and it also appeared there! I chose Actions next to it and deleted it. (DO NOT CLOSE THIS PAGE/WINDOW!)

6. I opened a NEW window and went to my Marketplace store to see if it was removed from there as well. I checked all pages of my listings and it wasn't there anymore, but.. when looking on the left side of the page at Price L$11 - L$100 I still saw the number (1) behind it so I clicked to go to that page and it still appeared there.

7. So I went back to the previous window (the one that I didn't close) and I went back a few pages until I was on the page again where I could edit that item. I deleted the picture, the name and the description and I clicked on Update.

8. I went back to my store and now it was completely gone! Yaay :D

 

Now I don't know if step 7 is important as well or that it just took some more time for the item to be removed at Price L$11 - L$100. But if you plan on following this I would suggest to do the exact same steps as I did. Cause after step 6 I first tried to do all the previous steps again so it would appear again in Manage Listings but the viewer gave me an error saying something like the item doesn't exist. That's why I did step 7.

 

I hope it works for others as well, good luck!

Wow! This is GREAT news for the 100's (1000's?) of people still infested by this enormous bug. Good work!

I suspect your Step #7 was needed due to Cache Refresh issues in your web browser; it may only take hitting Refresh (F5 for many or at worst Shift-F5). I have run into a couple of places where a Refresh fixes up a few on-screen wrinkles with the new VMM operations so this doesn't surprise me.

But all in all? HIGH-FIVES!! And thank you from all those that still glare at those daggone ghost listings.
