     1= InterTrac Links
     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.
     5== Link Syntax
     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:
     13The other resource is specified using a regular !TracLink, of any flavor.
     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.
     17The prefix is case insensitive.
     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`.
     21For convenience, there is also an alternate short-hand form, where an alias can be used as an immediate prefix for the identifier of a ticket, changeset or report, eg `#T234`, `[T1508]`, `[trac 1508]`.
     23== Examples
     25The only prefix defined by default is `trac`, which points to Additional prefixes can be specified in the [TracIni#intertrac-section intertrac] section of TracIni. For example:
     29# -- Example of setting up an alias:
     30t = trac
     32# -- Link to an external Trac:
     33genshi.title = Edgewall's Trac for Genshi
     34genshi.url =
     37The `.url` is mandatory and is used for locating the other Trac.
     38It can be a relative URL when the Trac environment is located on the same server.
     40The `.title` information is used in a tooltip, ie when hovering the cursor over an InterTrac link.
     42Now, given the above configuration, one could create the following links:
     43 * to this InterTrac page:
     44   * `trac:wiki:InterTrac` trac:wiki:InterTrac
     45   * `t:wiki:InterTrac` t:wiki:InterTrac
     46   * `genshi:InterTrac` genshi:InterTrac
     47   * Keys are case insensitive: `T:wiki:InterTrac` T:wiki:InterTrac
     48 * to the ticket #234:
     49   * `trac:ticket:234` trac:ticket:234
     50   * `trac:#234` trac:#234
     51   * `genshi:#234` genshi:#234
     52   * `#T234` #T234
     53 * to the changeset [1912]:
     54   * `trac:changeset:1912` trac:changeset:1912
     55   * `[T1912]` [T1912]
     56 * to the log range [3300:3330]:
     57   * `trac:log:@3300:3330` trac:log:@3300:3330 
     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'')
     61The 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). For the rest (`intertrac_prefix:something`), we rely on the [TracSearch#quickjump quick jump] facility of the remote Trac.
