    11880TracLinks 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.
     
    12587To create a link to a specific anchor in a page, use '#':
    12688{{{
    127  [#Relativelinks relative links] or [[#Relativelinks|relative links]]
     89 [#Relativelinks relative links]
    12890}}}
    12991Displays:
    130   [#Relativelinks relative links] or [[#Relativelinks|relative links]]
     92  [#Relativelinks relative links]
    13193
    13294Hint: 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.
     
    139101To link from a [trac:SubWiki SubWiki] page to a parent, simply use a '..':
    140102{{{
    141   [..] or [[..]]
    142 }}}
    143   [..] or [[..]]
    144 
    145 To link from a [trac:SubWiki SubWiki] page to a [=#sibling sibling] page, use a '../':
    146 {{{
    147   [../Sibling see next sibling] or [[../Sibling|see next sibling]]
    148 }}}
    149   [../Sibling see next sibling] or [[../Sibling|see next sibling]]
    150 
    151 But in practice you often won't need to add the `../` prefix to link to a sibling page.
    152 For resolving the location of a wiki link, it's the target page closest in the hierarchy
    153 to the page where the link is written which will be selected. So for example, within
    154 a sub-hierarchy, a sibling page will be targeted in preference to a toplevel page.
    155 This makes it easy to copy or move pages to a sub-hierarchy by [[WikiNewPage#renaming|renaming]] without having to adapt the links.
    156 
    157 In order to link explicitly to a [=#toplevel toplevel] Wiki page,
    158 use the `wiki:/` prefix.
    159 Be careful **not** to use the `/` prefix alone, as this corresponds to the
    160 [#Server-relativelinks] syntax and with such a link you will lack the `/wiki/`
    161 part in the resulting URL.
    162 
    163 ''(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.
    164 See [#Server-relativelinks] for the new syntax.
     103  [..]
     104}}}
     105
     106To 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.
    165112
    166113=== InterWiki links ===
     
    172119This can be seen as a kind of InterWiki link specialized for targeting other Trac projects.
    173120
    174 Any 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.
    175 
    176 A 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].
    177 See InterTrac for the complete details.
     121Any 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
     123A 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].

    204149=== Quoting space in TracLinks ===
     
    212157 * !attachment:"the file.txt:ticket:123"
    213158
    214 Note that by using [trac:WikiCreole] style links, it's quite natural to write links containing spaces:
    215  * ![[The whitespace convention]]
    216  * ![[attachment:the file.txt]]

    231172=== Parameterized Trac links ===
    232173
    233 Many Trac resources have more than one way to be rendered, depending on 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.
    234 
    235 Trac links can support an arbitrary set of parameters, written in the same way as they would be for the corresponding URL. Some examples:

    260200=== comment: links ===
    261201
    262 When you're inside a given ticket, you can simply write e.g. !comment:3 to link to the third change comment.
    263 It is possible to link to a comment of a specific ticket from anywhere using one of the following syntax:
    264  - `comment:3:ticket:123`
    265  - `ticket:123#comment:3` (note that you can't write `#123#!comment:3`!)
    266 It is also possible to link to the ticket's description using one of the following syntax:
    267  - `comment:description` (within the ticket)
    268  - `comment:description:ticket:123`
    269  - `ticket:123#comment:description`
     202When you're inside a given tickets, you can simply write e.g. !comment:3 to link to the third change comment.
     203It'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!)

    281216
    282217Besides 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.

    308  ''aliases:'' `browser:`, `repos:`
    309 
    310 The default behavior for a source:/some/path link is to open the browser in that directory directory
    311 if the path points to a directory or to show the latest content of the file.
     242
     243The default behavior for a source:/some/path link is to open the directory browser
     244if the path points to a directory and otherwise open the log view.
    312245
    313246It's also possible to link directly to a specific revision of a file like this:
     
    321254Finally, one can also highlight an arbitrary set of lines:
    322255 - `source:/some/file@123:10-20,100,103#L99` - highlight lines 10 to 20, and lines 100 and 103.
    323    ''(since 0.11)''
    324 
    325 Note 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)''
     256''(since 0.11)''

    340 The `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.
     271The `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.
    341272 - `log:/` - the latest revisions starting at the root of the repository
    342273 - `log:/trunk/tools` - the latest revisions in `trunk/tools`
    343274 - `log:/trunk/tools@10000` - the revisions in `trunk/tools` starting from  revision 10000
    344  - `log:@20788,20791:20795` - list revision 20788 and the revisions from 20791 to 20795
    345  - `log:/trunk/tools@20788,20791:20795` - list revision 20788 and the revisions from 20791 to 20795 which affect the given path
     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
    346277
    347278There are short forms for revision ranges as well:
     
    350281 - `r20791:20795` (but not `r20788,20791:20795` nor `r20791:20795/trunk`)
    351282
    352 Finally, note that in all of the above, a revision range can be written either as `x:y` or `x-y`.
    353 
    354 In 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]`.
     283Finally, note that in all of the above, a revision range can be written indifferently `x:y` or `x-y`.
