I've followed the instructions on here, but I can't seem to compile.

The shortcut they have is C-l, but I have no idea what that means.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

C-l means control+L on Windows and command+L on OS X. What do you want to compile? Do you mean building a LaTeX-File? Or compiling SublimeText from source? – ralfix May 5 '13 at 23:03
@ralfix a latex file, but cmd+L doesn't work (I tried it), it simply highlights blocks of code. – AlanH May 5 '13 at 23:04

To Build a LaTeX-File, you have to use the C-b-Shortcut, which is control+B on windows and command+B on OS X. I suggest you to install the LaTeXTools-Package trough the built-in package control, which provides amazing features for LaTeX editing and building.

To install LaTeXTools, press control+shift+P (command+shift+P), type install, accept with enter and then search for LaTeXTools.

The Build-Command of LaTeXTools uses latexmk (afaik), which is very good. I personally prefere arara, which needs to be added manually.
