WikiFormatting

Wiki serves as the core component of Trac, which tightly integrates all the other parts of Trac into flexible and powerful system. Trac has a built in small and powerful wiki rendering engine. This wiki engine implements an ever growing subset of the commands from other popular Wikis especially MoinWiki.

This page demonstrates some of the formatting commands available in the Trac Wiki.

Font styles

The Trac wiki support the following font styles: bold, italic and underline.

The Trac wiki support the following font styles: '''bold''', ''italic''
and __underline__.

Heading

You can create heading by starting a line with one up to five equal signs followed by a space and the headline text. The line should end with a space followed by the same number of equal signs.

Example:

= Heading =
== Subheading ==

Paragraphs

A new text paragraph is created whenever two blocks of text are separated by an empty line. A newline can also be inserted like this:

Line 1[[BR]]Line 2

Display:

Line 1
Line 2

Text paragraphs can also be indented by starting the lines with a few spaces.

Lists

Example:

 * Item 1
   * Item 1.1
 * Item 2

 1. Item 1
   1. Item 1.1
 1. Item 2

Display:

  • Item 1
    • Item 1.1
  • Item 2
  1. Item 1
    1. Item 1.1
  2. Item 2

Preformatted text

Block quotes, also know as preformatted text, is suitable for source code snippets, notes and examples. Use three curly braces wrapped around the text:

 {{{
  def HelloWorld()
      print "Hello World"
 }}}

Display:

 def HelloWorld()
     print "Hello World"

Tables

Simple tables can be created like this:

||Cell 1||Cell 2||Cell 3||
||Cell 4||Cell 5||Cell 6||

Display:

Cell 1Cell 2Cell 3
Cell 4Cell 5Cell 6

Hyperlinks are automatically created for WikiPageNames and urls. WikiPageLinks can be disabled by prepending a bang (!) character like this !WikiPageLink.

For example:

TitleIndex, http://www.edgewall.com/.

Links can be given a more descriptive title by writing the link followed by a space and a title and all this inside two square brackets. Like this:

 * [http://www.edgewall.com/ Edgewall Software]
 * [wiki:TitleIndex Title Index]

Display:

Trac allows wiki pages to link directly to other parts of the Trac system. Pages can refer to tickets, reports and changesets by simply writing the ticket, report and changeset numbers in the following notation:

 * Ticket #1 
 * Report {1}
 * Changeset [1]
 * File source:trunk/COPYING.
 * A specific file revision: source:/trunk/COPYING#200

Display:

See TracLinks for more information about intra-trac linking.

Images

Urls ending with .png, .gif or .jpg will be converted to an IMG-tag.

Example:

http://www.edgewall.com/gfx/trac_example_image.png

Display:

http://www.edgewall.com/gfx/trac_example_image.png

Macros

Macros are custom functions to insert dynamic content in a page. See WikiMacros for usage.

Example:

 [[Timestamp]]

Display:

Error: Failed to load processor Timestamp
No macro or processor named 'Timestamp' found

Processors

Trac supports alternative markup formats using WikiProcessors. For example, processors are used to write pages in reStructuredText or HTML. See WikiProcessors for documentation.

Example 1:

{{{
#!html
<h1 style="text-align: right; color: blue">HTML Test</h1>
}}}

Display:

HTML Test

Example 2:

{{{
#!python
class Test:
    def __init__(self):
        print "Hello World"
if __name__ == '__main__':
   Test()
}}}

Display:

class Test:
    def __init__(self):
        print "Hello World"
if __name__ == '__main__':
   Test()

Miscellaneous

Four or more dashes will be replaced by a horizontal line (<HR>)
