Viewer URI Name Space

From Second Life Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search


The SL client supports links of the format secondlife://Region/123/45/67/, which have traditionally specified a region name and x/y/z location. This means "run Second Life viewer and show Region on the world map".

The new URL scheme has 3 slashes, and allows direct control of the user interface and login. For example, secondlife:///app/login

Most secondlife:///app URLs only work from browser instances running inside Second Life because of a denial-of-service attack using secondlife:///app/teleport links to force repeated teleports. SLURLs that work with external browsers include:

In chat, dialogs and other user interface elements, these URLs will be highlighted as clickable links, often with custom formatting including icons. The full functionality is available in Viewer 2.0 and up. Clickable links without formatting were available only in older versions' chat and IM history.

These links also may be known as Viewer URL Namespace, SLAPP URLs or Application SLURL.

Enclose your links in squared brackets to change the displayed text. Example:

[secondlife:///app/objectim/190f571d-fdf1-8f6c-4e9d-973e9b5e0566?name=ObjectName&owner=c93c3129-2250-4c79-a5f7-8c755ca2707e&groupowned=true&slurl=Location/128/128/27 ObjectName]

will display as



. In this case you will also need to ensure the object name has been escaped.

To display the uri itself without making it clickable, surround it with <nolink></nolink>. For example
