    80103TracLinks are a very simple idea, but actually allow quite a complex network of information. In practice, it's very intuitive and simple to use, and we've found the "link trail" extremely helpful to better understand what's happening in a project or why a particular change was made.
     
    87110To create a link to a specific anchor in a page, use '#':
    88111{{{
    89  [#Relativelinks relative links]
     112 [#Relativelinks relative links] or [[#Relativelinks|relative links]]
    90113}}}
    91114Displays:
    92   [#Relativelinks relative links]
     115  [#Relativelinks relative links] or [[#Relativelinks|relative links]]
    93116
    94117Hint: when you move your mouse over the title of a section, a '¶' character will be displayed. This is a link to that specific section and you can use this to copy the `#...` part inside a relative link to an anchor.
     
    101124To link from a [trac:SubWiki SubWiki] page to a parent, simply use a '..':
    102125{{{
    103   [..]
    104 }}}
    105 
    106 To link from a [trac:SubWiki SubWiki] page to a sibling page, use a '../':
    107 {{{
    108   [../Sibling see next sibling]
    109 }}}
    110 
    111 ''(Changed in 0.11)'' Note that in Trac 0.10, using e.g. `[../newticket]`  may have worked for linking to the /newticket top-level URL, but now in 0.11 it will stay in the wiki namespace and link to a sibling page. See [#Server-relativelinks] for the new syntax.
     126  [..] or [[..]]
     127}}}
     128  [..] or [[..]]
     129
     130To link from a [trac:SubWiki SubWiki] page to a [=#sibling sibling] page, use a '../':
     131{{{
     132  [../Sibling see next sibling] or [[../Sibling|see next sibling]]
     133}}}
     134  [../Sibling see next sibling] or [[../Sibling|see next sibling]]
     135
     136But in practice you often won't need to add the `../` prefix to link to a sibling page.
     137For resolving the location of a wiki link, it's the target page closest in the hierarchy
     138to the page where the link is written which will be selected. So for example, within
     139a sub-hierarchy, a sibling page will be targeted in preference to a toplevel page.
     140This makes it easy to copy or move pages to a sub-hierarchy by [[WikiNewPage#renaming|renaming]] without having to adapt the links.
     141
     142In order to link explicitly to a [=#toplevel toplevel] Wiki page,
     143use the `wiki:/` prefix.
     144Be careful **not** to use the `/` prefix alone, as this corresponds to the
     145[#Server-relativelinks] syntax and with such a link you will lack the `/wiki/`
     146part in the resulting URL.
     147
     148''(Changed in 0.11)'' Note that in Trac 0.10, using e.g. `[../newticket]`  may have worked for linking to the `/newticket` top-level URL, but since 0.11, such a link will stay in the wiki namespace and therefore link to a sibling page.
     149See [#Server-relativelinks] for the new syntax.

    113151=== InterWiki links ===
     
    119157This can be seen as a kind of InterWiki link specialized for targeting other Trac projects.
    120158
    121 Any type of Trac links could be written in one Trac environment and actually refer to resources present in another Trac environment, provided the Trac link is prefixed by the name of that other Trac environment followed by a colon. That other Trac environment must be registered, under its name or an alias. See InterTrac for details.
    122 
    123 A distinctive advantage of InterTrac links over InterWiki links is that the shorthand form of Trac links usually have a way to understand the InterTrac prefixes. For example, links to Trac tickets can be written #T234 (if T was set as an alias for Trac), links to Trac changesets can be written [trac 1508].
     159Any type of Trac link can be written in one Trac environment and actually refer to resources in another Trac environment. All that is required is to prefix the Trac link with the name of the other Trac environment followed by a colon. The other Trac environment must be registered on the InterTrac page.
     160
     161A distinctive advantage of InterTrac links over InterWiki links is that the shorthand form of Trac links (e.g. `{}`, `r`, `#`) can also be used. For example if T was set as an alias for Trac, links to Trac tickets can be written #T234, links to Trac changesets can be written [trac 1508].
     162See InterTrac for the complete details.

    140 
    141 To link to another location on the server (outside the project), use the '//location' link syntax (''Changed in 0.11''):

    149189=== Quoting space in TracLinks ===
     
    157197 * !attachment:"the file.txt:ticket:123"
    158198
     199Note that by using [trac:WikiCreole] style links, it's quite natural to write links containing spaces:
     200 * ![[The whitespace convention]]
     201 * ![[attachment:the file.txt]]

    172216=== Parameterized Trac links ===
    173217
    174 The Trac links target Trac resources which have generally more than one way to be rendered, according to some extra parameters. For example, a Wiki page can accept a `version` or a `format` parameter, a report can make use of dynamic variables, etc.
    175 
    176 Any Trac links can support an arbitrary set of parameters, written in the same way as they would be for the corresponding URL. Some examples:

    201246
    202 When you're inside a given tickets, you can simply write e.g. !comment:3 to link to the third change comment.
    203 It's also possible to link to a comment of a specific ticket from anywhere using one of the following syntax:
    204  - !comment:3:ticket:123
    205  - !ticket:123#comment:3 (note that you can't write !#123#!comment:3!)
     247When you're inside a given ticket, you can simply write e.g. !comment:3 to link to the third change comment.
     248It is possible to link to a comment of a specific ticket from anywhere using one of the following syntax:
     249 - `comment:3:ticket:123`
     250 - `ticket:123#comment:3` (note that you can't write `#123#!comment:3`!)
     251It is also possible to link to the ticket's description using one of the following syntax:
     252 - `comment:description` (within the ticket)
     253 - `comment:description:ticket:123`
     254 - `ticket:123#comment:description`

    217267Besides the obvious `ticket:id` form, it is also possible to specify a list of tickets or even a range of tickets instead of the `id`. This generates a link to a custom query view containing this fixed set of tickets.

    240291=== Version Control related links ===
     292
     293It should be noted that multiple repository support works by creating a kind of virtual namespace for versioned files in which the toplevel folders correspond to the repository names. Therefore, in presence of multiple repositories, a ''/path'' specification in the syntax of links detailed below should start with the name of the repository. If omitted, the default repository is used. In case a toplevel folder of the default repository has the same name as a repository, the latter "wins". One can always access such folder by fully qualifying it (the default repository can be an alias of a named repository, or conversely, it is always possible to create an alias for the default repository, ask your Trac administrator).
     294
     295For example, `source:/trunk/COPYING` targets the path `/trunk/COPYING` in the default repository, whereas `source:/projectA/trunk/COPYING` targets the path `/trunk/COPYING` in the repository named `projectA`. This can be the same file if `'projectA'` is an alias to the default repository or if `''` (the default repository) is an alias to `'projectA'`.
     296
    241297==== source: links ====
    242 
    243 The default behavior for a source:/some/path link is to open the directory browser
    244 if the path points to a directory and otherwise open the log view.
     298 ''aliases:'' `browser:`, `repos:`
     299
     300The default behavior for a source:/some/path link is to open the browser in that directory directory
     301if the path points to a directory or to show the latest content of the file.
    245302
    246303It's also possible to link directly to a specific revision of a file like this:
     
    254311Finally, one can also highlight an arbitrary set of lines:
    255312 - `source:/some/file@123:10-20,100,103#L99` - highlight lines 10 to 20, and lines 100 and 103.
    256 ''(since 0.11)''
     313   ''(since 0.11)''
     314
     315Note that in presence of multiple repositories, the name of the repository is simply integrated in the path you specify for `source:` (e.g. `source:reponame/trunk/README`). ''(since 0.12)''
    257316
    258317==== export: links ====
     
    269328==== log: links ====
    270329
    271 The `log:` links are used to display revision ranges. In its simplest form, it can link to the latest revisions from the specified path, but it can also support displaying an arbitrary set of revisions.
     330The `log:` links are used to display revision ranges. In its simplest form, it can link to the latest revisions of the specified path, but it can also support displaying an arbitrary set of revisions.
    272331 - `log:/` - the latest revisions starting at the root of the repository
    273332 - `log:/trunk/tools` - the latest revisions in `trunk/tools`
    274333 - `log:/trunk/tools@10000` - the revisions in `trunk/tools` starting from  revision 10000
    275  - `log:@20788,20791:20795` - list revision 20788 and the 20791 to 20795 revision range
    276  - `log:/trunk/tools@20788,20791:20795` - list revision 20788 and the revisions from the 20791 to 20795 range which affect the given path
     334 - `log:@20788,20791:20795` - list revision 20788 and the revisions from 20791 to 20795
     335 - `log:/trunk/tools@20788,20791:20795` - list revision 20788 and the revisions from 20791 to 20795 which affect the given path
    277336
    278337There are short forms for revision ranges as well:
     
    281340 - `r20791:20795` (but not `r20788,20791:20795` nor `r20791:20795/trunk`)
    282341
    283 Finally, note that in all of the above, a revision range can be written indifferently `x:y` or `x-y`.
     342Finally, note that in all of the above, a revision range can be written either as `x:y` or `x-y`.
     343
     344In the presence of multiple repositories, the name of the repository should be specified as the first part of the path, e.g. `log:repos/branches` or `[20-40/repos]`.
