Wiki Page Names

Wiki page names are written using CamelCase. Within a wiki text, any word in CamelCase automatically becomes a hyperlink to the wiki page with that same name.

Page names must follow these rules:

  1. The name must consist of alphabetic characters only. No digits, spaces, punctuation, or underscores are allowed.
  2. A name must have at least two capital letters.
  3. The first character must be capitalized.
  4. Every capital letter must be followed by one or more lower-case letters.
  5. The use of slash ( / ) is permitted to create a hierarchy inside the wiki. (See SubWiki and ParentWiki macros in the MacroBazaar which provide a way to list all sub-entries and a link up the hierarchy respectively.)

If you want to create a wiki page that doesn't follow CamelCase rules you could use the following syntax:

 * [wiki:Wiki_page], [wiki:ISO9000]
 * [wiki:"Space Matters"] that page name embeds space characters
 * or simply: ["Trac"] or even [Trac] 

This will be rendered as:

Note that changeset links still take precedence over the generic link resolver syntax, so [ISO9000] will rather be interpreted as an InterTrac link to changeset 9000 in the ISO environment. In the likely case such an environment is not registered, the content will be left as it is. In this situation, you should use a more explicit way to express that you want a wiki link: use [wiki:ISO9000] or ["ISO9000"].

Note: Since Trac 0.10, the undocumented trick of using "%20" in wiki links to fake a space character will not work anymore.
