I'd like to register my interest in this as a user - we've only just installed Trac and already our users want this feature! If you can provide it, it would be seriously appreciated.

Hello - I've put up a rudimentary BackLinks macro at the MacroBazaar.

comment:4 by anonymous, 14 years ago

In Trac, (a subset of) the BackLinks should be displayed by default in conjunction with a ticket or change set. This would be better than explicitly including a list of BackLinks with a macro (or requesting BackLinks via a search form).

Candidates for automatically displayed BackLinks are:

  • All other tickets referencing some ticket.
  • All change sets referencing some ticket.
  • All tickets referencing some change set.
  • All change sets referencing another change set.

Actually, the suggested automatically displayed BackLinks are available by the way of TracCrossReferences.

I hacked in a "automatic" back links feature using the BackLinks macro found in the MacroBazaar.

First I created a "BackLinks" wiki page with just simply the following code:

[[BackLinks()]]

Then I modified the BackLinks macro a bit:

13c13,14
<
---
>         if thispage == 'BackLinks':
>             thispage = hdf.getValue('args.referer', thispage)

And finally I added this line to the ctxtnav section of wiki.cs template:

<li><a href="<?cs var:$trac.href.wiki ?>/BackLinks?referer=<?cs var:$wiki.page_name ?>">Back Links</a></li>

This will add a "Back Links" link to the top navigation bar of all wiki pages and clicking that link will show a new page with all BackLinks to the page.

sorry for "question-spamming", but why postpone this (as far as i can judge) near-trivial feature?

when to expect 1.0? 3 years from now? (if one looks at the roadmap of completed milestones…)

It is far from trivial. If you disagree, please feel free to contribute a patch.

This feature will be appreciated. Backlinks in wiki pages are convenient for navigation.

comment:25 by d.ziegenberg@…, 5 years ago

This ticket was opend 10 years ago. Is there a planned release date or is this never going to happen. Well, in the second case, please close with "won't fix" so people know what to expect.

As I'm sure we're going to see more of this kind of question, here's a generic answer: ThisTicketWasOpenedTenYearsAgo ;-)
