Viewer URI Name Space

From Second Life Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search


The SL client supports "Wikipedia logo"links of the format secondlife://Region/123/45/67/<region name>, 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 "Wikipedia logo"URL scheme has 3 slashes[1], 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:

  • secondlife://<region name>
  • secondlife:///app/login

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.

Second Life Wiki formatting

When adding secondlife:// links using the above syntax to a Second Life Wiki page, you can enclose your links in squared brackets (thus turning them into a standard Wiki external link), which also gives you the chance of changing 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.

Sometimes, having the link clickable (which will attempt to launch the Second Life Viewer to open it), is not desirable. Instead, to display the "Wikipedia logo"URI itself without making it clickable, surround it with <nowiki>...</nowiki>. For example:


will display as




will display the whole link and make it clickable, e.g.:


LSL Examples

string Who(key id)
    return "secondlife:///app/agent/" + (string)id + "/inspect";
    touch_start(integer num)
        llSay(0, "Touched by " + Who(llDetectedKey(0)) + "." );
  1. Two slashes for the beginning of the authority section — for HTTP requests, this is the name of the server (optionally with the port) — here it's empty; followed by a third slash, terminating the authority section. See . Because Second Life is omitting the 'authority' part, that section is empty, thus the three slashes; note that Second Life is not the only example of an 'authorityless' communications protocol; there are plenty of other examples.
  2. The public (chat) channel, also written as PUBLIC_CHANNEL
