This tutorial will explain to you how to open a link in Second Life that is not a clickable URL. You can most likely see a link in someone’s profile (where you cannot use HTML or the normal <a href= thing), or from chat text—both are total difference, but will be explained here.

First we will start with viewing it from public chat. Unlike IM, public chat on screen is NOT clickable, this means you cannot just *click* the URL to open it…
You need to:

1. Click on LOCAL CHAT at the bottom of your Second Life viewer.

2. Click the purple-colored link.

3. Wait for your browser to open and load.

-That’s it! Simple, ain’t it? Well, this one is a little bit more tricky…

Now I will explain how to open a link from an un-openable/clickable place, such as someone’s profile.
Like me, some people like putting MORE links in their profile than just the WEB tab, so the other sections of the profile seems like the perfect place—And it is. :)
Here is how to open it:

1. Open the person’s profile (right-click on avatar > PROFILE -or- SEARCH > PEOPLE).

2. Hold your left mouse-button and select and highlight the Link/URL.

3. Press CTRL+C (Control key and C letter) on your keyboard.

4. Open your browser.

5. Press CTRL+V (Control key and V letter) on your keyboard to paste the URL. Or, right-click on the URL bar and choose from the menu PASTE.

6. Hit ENTER for it to load.

There you have it! :D

[TUTOR] How to unpack boxed items

If you have got an item that is “boxed”, then it means the real items are in the Contents tab. How do you get them?

Go to your Inventory (The icon at the bottom of the screen, next to Mini-Map).

Under Objects folder, you can see your boxed item. Select that item and simply drag it to the ground.

Now that you have rezzed your boxed item; right click from the pie menu and choose “Open”. Now copy the items to your Inventory.

Open your Inventory window and under “My Inventory” you can find your items. E.g. If it’s just an object, you can find it under Objects folder. If it’s just an animation, you can find it under Animations folder, and so on. But if it’s a whole folder, you will see it under “My Inventory” in its own folder.

Have fun!
