Place Pages

<!--TableOfContents:Begin-->
<!--TableOfContents:End-->
Note: Place Pages is a Beta feature, which means that parts of Place Pages may change before final release.  We'll keep these instructions up-to-date as development continues.

Place pages allow you to promote your spaces in Second Life through the use of images, videos, and text.  Place page URLs may be easily shared in chat or on a website, allowing people to discover and visit your inworld locations.

<!--TableOfContentsAnchor:Begin--><!--TableOfContentsAnchor:End-->Creating a place page


By default, every parcel and region in the Second Life world has a place page derived from information in the parcel's profile. You may edit and embellish a place page for any parcel or region you own, or for group-owned parcels for which you have the Toggle 'Show Place in Search' and set category group ability.  However, nobody can visit a place page unless the parcel's Show Place in Search checkbox is checked in the You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.. Region place pages are accessible regardless of search settings.

To view and edit your place pages:

  1. Visit the place pages dashboard at: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view. and log in using your Second Life credentials.
  2. In the upper right of the dashboard, move the mouse over your name and select My Places from the dropdown to view a full list of parcels and regions you own.
  3. Choose a region or parcel and click the Edit link next to that land's listing to begin editing the place page for that land.
  4. Under Details on the Place Page Edit page, fill out the following:
    • Title - The title for the place page.  Typically, this is the name of your land.
    • Tagline - A short, descriptive subtitle, displayed prominently on the "hero" banner at the top of the page.
    • Description - A longer description or profile for the location, displayed below the images on the place page.
  5. Under the Optional section, you may provide a YouTube link in order to display a video on your place page.  The Optional section also provides options for you to customize the color of your place page's background and font.
  6. Under the Hero Image section, choose an image to be the background of the banner at the top of your place page.  Hero images must be 1900x700 resolution, or else they may be subject to distortion.
  7. The Stats section provides statistical information about the land, and cannot be edited in the Place Page Editor.
  8. Under Additional Images, you may choose up to three additional images to display on your place page.  The images are shown as a slideshow and periodically cycle if not clicked by a user.  Additional images must be of 852x486 resolution or they may be subject to distortion.

<!--TableOfContentsAnchor:Begin--><!--TableOfContentsAnchor:End-->Visiting a place page


To visit a place page, simply click a place page URL or paste it into your web browser's address bar.  While viewing a place page, you may learn more about the location, view images and videos, or ultimately visit the location in Second Life by clicking the Visit this location button located on the hero image.

<!--TableOfContentsAnchor:Begin--><!--TableOfContentsAnchor:End-->Sample place pages


Here are a few examples of place pages created for places owned by Linden Lab:

<!--TableOfContentsAnchor:Begin--><!--TableOfContentsAnchor:End-->Hiding a place page


Place pages for land parcels are not visible to other Residents unless the land's Show Place in Search checkbox is checked in the About Land window.  This box is unchecked by default.  You may access the About Land window by visiting the parcel, then choosing World > About land from the top menu bar.

If you wish to hide an entire region's place page, you may check the Block Land Show in Search checkbox in the Region tab of the Region/Estate window.  You may access the Region/Estate window by visiting the region and choosing World > Region/Estate from the top menu bar.

<!--TableOfContentsAnchor:Begin--><!--TableOfContentsAnchor:End-->Using a 360 snapshot as a Hero Image


Note: The 360 snapshot feature is still in a very experimental Project Viewer stage, and is subject to drastic change or removal at any time as development continues.

If you have captured a 360 snapshot using the You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view., you may upload a captured 360 snapshot in place of your Hero Image:

  1. Capture a 360 snapshot to your computer as described in You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view..
  2. Go to You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view. in your web browser and click the New button.  You must be logged into the Second Life website in order to complete this step.
  3. Click the Choose File button and select the captured 360 snapshot (ending in ".zip") from your computer.
  4. Choose one of your places from the Place dropdown.
  5. Press the Update button to upload your 360 snapshot to the selected place page.

An uploaded 360 snapshot replaces the Hero Image for the selected place page, allowing visitors to pan around the image for a full 360 degree view of the place where the image was captured.
