    3 Starting with Trac 0.11, it is now possible to customize the main and meta navigation entries in some basic ways.
    4 
    5 The new `[mainnav]` and `[metanav]` configuration sections can now be used to customize the text and link used for the navigation items, or even to disable them.  The `mainnav` and `metanav` options in the `[trac]` configuration section can also be used to change the order.

    13 In the following example, we rename the link to the Wiki start "Home", and make the "View Tickets" entry link to a specific report.  The second example (below) also hides the "!Help/Guide" link.

    2218=== `[metanav]` #metanav-bar
    23 `[metanav]` corresponds to the '''meta navigation bar''', by default positioned above the main navigation bar and below the ''Search'' box. It contains the ''Log in'', ''Logout'', ''!Help/Guide'' etc. entries. This navigation bar is meant to access some global information about the Trac project and the current user.

    45 === `[trac]` #nav-order
    46 The `mainnav` and `metanav` options in the `[trac]` configuration section control the order in which the navigation items are displayed (left to right).  This can be useful with plugins that add navigation items.
     41=== Ordering #nav-order
     42The `order` attribute specifies the order in which the navigation items are displayed. This can be particularly useful for plugins that add navigation items.
    4743
    48 ** Example **
     44Non-negative floating point values may be used for the `order` attribute. The navigation items will be arranged from left to right in increasing order. Navigation items without an `order` attribute are sorted alphabetically by name.
    4945
    50 In the following example, we change the order to prioritise the ticket related items further left.
     46The default values are:
     47{{{#!ini
     48[mainnav]
     49browser.order = 4
     50newticket.order = 6
     51roadmap.order = 3
     52search.order = 7
     53tickets.order = 5
     54timeline.order = 2
     55wiki.order = 1

     61logout.order = 2
     62prefs.order = 3

    58 The default order and item names can be viewed in the [TracIni#trac-section trac section of TracIni].

    62 Note that it is still not possible to customize the '''contextual navigation bar''', i.e. the one usually placed below the main navigation bar.
