    11= InterTrac Links
    22
    3 Trac supports a convenient way to refer to resources of other Trac servers, from within the Wiki markup. An !InterTrac link can be seen as a scoped TracLinks. It is used for referring to a Trac resource located in another Trac environment. A resource can be a wiki page, changeset, ticket or milestone.

     3Trac supports a convenient way to refer to resources of other Trac servers using Wiki markup. An !InterTrac link can be seen as a scoped [TracLinks TracLink]. It is used for referring to a Trac resource located in another Trac environment.

    95== Link Syntax
    106
    11 Simply use the name of the other Trac environment as a prefix, followed by a colon, ending with the resource located in the other environment.
     7Simply use the name of the other Trac environment as a prefix, followed by a colon, ending with the resource located in the other environment:
    128
    139{{{
     
    1511}}}
    1612
    17 The other resource is specified using a regular TracLinks, of any flavor.
     13The other resource is specified using a regular !TracLink, of any flavor.
    1814
    19 That target environment name is either the real name of the environment or an alias for it.
    20 The aliases are defined in `trac.ini` (see below).
     15That target environment name is either the real name of the environment or an alias.
     16The aliases are defined in the `trac.ini` file, see below.
    2117The prefix is case insensitive.
    2218
    23 If the InterTrac link is enclosed in square brackets (like `[th:WikiExtrasPlugin]`), the InterTrac prefix is removed in the displayed link like a normal link resolver would be, ie the above would be displayed as `WikiExtrasPlugin`.
     19If the InterTrac link is enclosed in square brackets, like `[th:WikiExtrasPlugin]`, the InterTrac prefix is removed in the displayed link like a normal link resolver would be. For example, the above would be displayed as `WikiExtrasPlugin`.
    2420
    25 For convenience, there's also some alternative short-hand form, where one can use an alias as an immediate prefix for the identifier of a ticket, changeset or report, eg `#T234`, `[T1508]`, `[trac 1508]`.

    2723== Examples
    2824
    29 It is necessary to setup a configuration for the InterTrac facility.
    30 This configuration has to be done in the TracIni file, `[intertrac]` section.
     25The only prefix defined by default is `trac`, which points to trac.edgewall.org. Additional prefixes can be specified in the [TracIni#intertrac-section intertrac] section of TracIni. For example:
    3126
    32 Example configuration:
    3327{{{#!ini
    3428[intertrac]
     
    3731
    3832# -- Link to an external Trac:
    39 trac.title = Edgewall's Trac for Trac
    40 trac.url = http://trac.edgewall.org
     33genshi.title = Edgewall's Trac for Genshi
     34genshi.url = http://genshi.edgewall.org
    4135}}}
    4236
    4337The `.url` is mandatory and is used for locating the other Trac.
    44 This can be a relative URL in case that Trac environment is located on the same server.
     38It can be a relative URL when the Trac environment is located on the same server.
    4539
    46 The `.title` information will be used for providing an useful tooltip when moving the cursor over an InterTrac links.
    47 
    48 Finally, the `.compat` option can be used to activate or disable
    49 a ''compatibility'' mode:
    50  * If the targeted Trac is running a version below [trac:milestone:0.10 0.10]
    51    ([trac:r3526 r3526] to be precise), then it doesn't know how to dispatch an InterTrac
    52    link, and it's up to the local Trac to prepare the correct link.
    53    Not all links will work that way, but the most common do.
    54    This is called the compatibility mode, and is `false` by default.
    55  * If you know that the remote Trac knows how to dispatch InterTrac links,
    56    you can explicitly disable this compatibility mode and then ''any''
    57    TracLinks can become an InterTrac link.
     40The `.title` information is used in a tooltip, ie when hovering the cursor over an InterTrac link.
    5841
    5942Now, given the above configuration, one could create the following links:
     
    6144   * `trac:wiki:InterTrac` trac:wiki:InterTrac
    6245   * `t:wiki:InterTrac` t:wiki:InterTrac
     46   * `genshi:InterTrac` genshi:InterTrac
    6347   * Keys are case insensitive: `T:wiki:InterTrac` T:wiki:InterTrac
    6448 * to the ticket #234:
    6549   * `trac:ticket:234` trac:ticket:234
    6650   * `trac:#234` trac:#234
     51   * `genshi:#234` genshi:#234
    6752   * `#T234` #T234
    6853 * to the changeset [1912]:
    6954   * `trac:changeset:1912` trac:changeset:1912
    7055   * `[T1912]` [T1912]
    71  * to the log range [3300:3330]: '''(Note: the following ones need `trac.compat=false`)'''
     56 * to the log range [3300:3330]:
    7257   * `trac:log:@3300:3330` trac:log:@3300:3330 
    73    * `[trac 3300:3330]` [trac 3300:3330] 
    74  * finally, to link to the start page of a remote trac, simply use its prefix followed by ':', inside an explicit link. Example: `[th: Trac Hacks]` (''since 0.11; note that the ''remote'' Trac has to run 0.11 for this to work'')
     58   * `[trac 3300:3330]` [trac 3300:3330]
     59   * finally, to link to the start page of a remote trac, simply use its prefix followed by ':', inside an explicit link. Example: `[th: Trac Hacks]` (note that the ''remote'' Trac has to run Trac >= 0.11 for this to work'')
    7560
    76 The generic form `intertrac_prefix:module:id` is translated to the corresponding URL `<remote>/module/id`, shorthand links are specific to some modules (e.g. !#T234 is processed by the ticket module) and for the rest (`intertrac_prefix:something`), we rely on the TracSearch#quickjump facility of the remote Trac.
