    80107TracLinks 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. 
     
    87114To create a link to a specific anchor in a page, use '#': 
    88115{{{ 
    89  [#Relativelinks relative links] 
     116 [#Relativelinks relative links] or [[#Relativelinks|relative links]] 
    90117}}} 
    91118Displays: 
    92   [#Relativelinks relative links] 
     119  [#Relativelinks relative links] or [[#Relativelinks|relative links]] 
    93120 
    94121Hint: 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. 
     
    101128To link from a [trac:SubWiki SubWiki] page to a parent, simply use a '..': 
    102129{{{ 
    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. 
     130  [..] or [[..]] 
     131}}} 
     132  [..] or [[..]] 
     133 
     134To link from a [trac:SubWiki SubWiki] page to a [=#sibling sibling] page, use a '../': 
     135{{{ 
     136  [../Sibling see next sibling] or [[../Sibling|see next sibling]] 
     137}}} 
     138  [../Sibling see next sibling] or [[../Sibling|see next sibling]] 
     139 
     140But in practice you often won't need to add the `../` prefix to link to a sibling page. 
     141For resolving the location of a wiki link, it's the target page closest in the hierarchy 
     142to the page where the link is written which will be selected. So for example, within  
     143a sub-hierarchy, a sibling page will be targeted in preference to a toplevel page. 
     144This makes it easy to copy or move pages to a sub-hierarchy by [[WikiNewPage#renaming|renaming]] without having to adapt the links. 
     145 
     146In order to link explicitly to a [=#toplevel toplevel] Wiki page, 
     147use the `wiki:/` prefix. 
     148Be careful **not** to use the `/` prefix alone, as this corresponds to the 
     149[#Server-relativelinks] syntax and with such a link you will lack the `/wiki/`  
     150part in the resulting URL. 
     151 
     152''(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.  
     153See [#Server-relativelinks] for the new syntax. 
    112154 
    113155=== InterWiki links === 
     
    119161This can be seen as a kind of InterWiki link specialized for targeting other Trac projects. 
    120162 
    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]. 
     163Any 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.  
     164 
     165A 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]. 
     166See InterTrac for the complete details.  
    124167 
    125168=== Server-relative links === 
     
    133176

    139 Display: [/newticket Create a new ticket] [/ home] 
    140  
    141 To link to another location on the server (outside the project), use the '//location' link syntax (''Changed in 0.11''): 
    142  
    143 {{{ 
    144 [//register Register Here] 
    145 }}}

     182Display: [/newticket Create a new ticket] or [[//newticket|Create a new ticket]] 
     183[/ home] or [[/|home]] 
     184 
     185To link to another location on the server (possibly outside the project but on the same host), use the `//` prefix (''Changed in 0.11''): 
     186 
     187{{{ 
     188[//register Register Here] or [[//register|Register Here]] 
     189}}}

     191Display: [//register Register Here] or [[//register|Register Here]] 
    148192 
    149193=== Quoting space in TracLinks === 
     
    157201 * !attachment:"the file.txt:ticket:123"  
    158202 
     203Note that by using [trac:WikiCreole] style links, it's quite natural to write links containing spaces: 
     204 * ![[The whitespace convention]] 
     205 * ![[attachment:the file.txt]] 
     206 
    159207=== Escaping Links === 
    160208 
     
    172220=== Parameterized Trac links === 
    173221 
    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:

    200249=== comment: links === 
    201250 
    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!) 
     251When you're inside a given ticket, you can simply write e.g. !comment:3 to link to the third change comment. 
     252It is possible to link to a comment of a specific ticket from anywhere using one of the following syntax: 
     253 - `comment:3:ticket:123`  
     254 - `ticket:123#comment:3` (note that you can't write `#123#!comment:3`!) 
     255It is also possible to link to the ticket's description using one of the following syntax: 
     256 - `comment:description` (within the ticket) 
     257 - `comment:description:ticket:123` 
     258 - `ticket:123#comment:description` 
    206259 
    207260=== query: links === 
     
    214267 
    215268=== ticket: links === 
     269 ''alias:'' `bug:` 
    216270 
    217271Besides 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. 
     
    241295=== Version Control related links === 
    242296==== source: links ==== 
    243  
    244 The default behavior for a source:/some/path link is to open the directory browser  
    245 if the path points to a directory and otherwise open the log view. 
     297 ''aliases:'' `browser:`, `repos:` 
     298 
     299The default behavior for a source:/some/path link is to open the browser in that directory directory  
     300if the path points to a directory or to show the latest content of the file. 
    246301 
    247302It's also possible to link directly to a specific revision of a file like this: 
     
    255310Finally, one can also highlight an arbitrary set of lines: 
    256311 - `source:/some/file@123:10-20,100,103#L99` - highlight lines 10 to 20, and lines 100 and 103. 
    257 ''(since 0.11)'' 
     312   ''(since 0.11)'' 
     313 
     314Note 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)'' 
    258315 
    259316==== export: links ==== 
     
    270327==== log: links ==== 
    271328 
    272 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. 
     329The `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. 
    273330 - `log:/` - the latest revisions starting at the root of the repository 
    274331 - `log:/trunk/tools` - the latest revisions in `trunk/tools` 
    275332 - `log:/trunk/tools@10000` - the revisions in `trunk/tools` starting from  revision 10000 
    276  - `log:@20788,20791:20795` - list revision 20788 and the 20791 to 20795 revision range 
    277  - `log:/trunk/tools@20788,20791:20795` - list revision 20788 and the revisions from the 20791 to 20795 range which affect the given path 
     333 - `log:@20788,20791:20795` - list revision 20788 and the revisions from 20791 to 20795  
     334 - `log:/trunk/tools@20788,20791:20795` - list revision 20788 and the revisions from 20791 to 20795 which affect the given path 
    278335 
    279336There are short forms for revision ranges as well: 
     
    282339 - `r20791:20795` (but not `r20788,20791:20795` nor `r20791:20795/trunk`) 
    283340 
    284 Finally, note that in all of the above, a revision range can be written indifferently `x:y` or `x-y`. 
     341Finally, note that in all of the above, a revision range can be written either as `x:y` or `x-y`. 
     342 
     343In 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]`.
