     3Trac 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.

    7 An InterTrac link can be seen as a scoped TracLinks.
    8 It is used for referring to a Trac resource
    9 (Wiki page, changeset, ticket, ...) located in another
    10 Trac environment.

    18 Simply use the name of the other Trac environment as a prefix,
    19 followed by a colon, ending with the resource located in the other environment.

    2517The other resource is specified using a regular TracLinks, of any flavor.

    27 That target environment name is either the real name of the
    28 environment, or an alias for it.
    29 The aliases are defined in `trac.ini` (see below).
     19That target environment name is either the real name of the environment or an alias for it.
     20The aliases are defined in the `trac.ini` file, see below.
    3021The prefix is case insensitive.
    3122
    32 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 (i.e. the above would be displayed as `WikiExtrasPlugin`).

    34 For convenience, there's also some alternative short-hand form,
    35 where one can use an alias as an immediate prefix
    36 for the identifier of a ticket, changeset or report:
    37 (e.g. `#T234`, `[T1508]`, `[trac 1508]`, ...)
     25For convenience, there is also an alternative 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]`.

    41 It is necessary to setup a configuration for the InterTrac facility.
    42 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:

    44 Example configuration:

    5542The `.url` is mandatory and is used for locating the other Trac.
    56 This can be a relative URL in case that Trac environment is located
    57 on the same server.

    59 The `.title` information will be used for providing an useful tooltip
    60 when moving the cursor over an InterTrac links.
    61 
    62 Finally, the `.compat` option can be used to activate or disable
    63 a ''compatibility'' mode:
    64  * If the targeted Trac is running a version below [trac:milestone:0.10 0.10]
    65    ([trac:r3526 r3526] to be precise), then it doesn't know how to dispatch an InterTrac
    66    link, and it's up to the local Trac to prepare the correct link.
    67    Not all links will work that way, but the most common do.
    68    This is called the compatibility mode, and is `false` by default.
    69  * If you know that the remote Trac knows how to dispatch InterTrac links,
    70    you can explicitly disable this compatibility mode and then ''any''
    71    TracLinks can become an InterTrac link.
     45The `.title` information is used in a tooltip, ie when hovering the cursor over an InterTrac link.

    7347Now, given the above configuration, one could create the following links:
     
    8357   * `trac:changeset:1912` trac:changeset:1912
    8458   * `[T1912]` [T1912]
    85  * to the log range [3300:3330]: '''(Note: the following ones need `trac.compat=false`)'''
     59 * to the log range [3300:3330]:
    8660   * `trac:log:@3300:3330` trac:log:@3300:3330 
    87    * `[trac 3300:3330]` [trac 3300:3330] 
    88  * 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'')

    90 The generic form `intertrac_prefix:module:id` is translated
    91 to the corresponding URL `<remote>/module/id`, shorthand links
    92 are specific to some modules (e.g. !#T234 is processed by the
    93 ticket module) and for the rest (`intertrac_prefix:something`),
    94 we rely on the TracSearch#quickjump facility of the remote Trac.
