    99== Link Syntax

    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.

    1212
    1313{{{

    1919That 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).
     20The aliases are defined in the `trac.ini` file, see below.
    2121The prefix is case insensitive.
    2222
    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`.

    2424
    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]`.

    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.
     29It is necessary to set up a configuration for the InterTrac facility.
     30This configuration has to be done in the TracIni file, `[intertrac]` section, for example:
    3131
    32 Example configuration:
    3332{{{#!ini
    3433[intertrac]
     
    4443This can be a relative URL in case that Trac environment is located on the same server.

    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.
     45The `.title` information is used in a tooltip, ie when hovering the cursor over an InterTrac link.

    5947Now, given the above configuration, one could create the following links:
     
    6957   * `trac:changeset:1912` trac:changeset:1912
    7058   * `[T1912]` [T1912]
    71  * to the log range [3300:3330]: '''(Note: the following ones need `trac.compat=false`)'''
     59 * to the log range [3300:3330]:
    7260   * `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'')
     61   * `[trac 3300:3330]` [trac 3300:3330]
     62   * 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'')

    7664The 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.
