Click back to this CyberCultures guide in your browser.
Select a SLURL (to the right), and click on it.
A new tab will open called “Slurl – location-based linking in Second Life.” Click on the orange TELEPORT NOW button. (You’ll get a pop-up stating that an external application must be launched.”) Click LAUNCH APPLICATION
Click back to the Second Life page; the SL grid map will appear show your newly selected location; click the blue TELEPORT button at the bottom. Your avatar will be transported to your newly selected SLURL.
Let there be light!!!
