Wiki Page Names
Table of Contents
Wiki page names commonly use the CamelCase convention. Within wiki text, any word in CamelCase automatically becomes a hyperlink to the wiki page with that name.
CamelCase page names must follow these rules:
- The name must consist of alphabetic characters only. No digits, spaces, punctuation, or underscores are allowed.
- A name must have at least two capital letters.
- The first character must be capitalized.
- Every capital letter must be followed by one or more lower-case letters.
- The use of slash ( / ) is permitted in page names (possibly representing a hierarchy).
If you want to create a wiki page that doesn't follow CamelCase rules you can use the following syntax:
* [wiki:Wiki_page], [wiki:ISO9000], and with a label: [wiki:ISO9000 ISO 9000 standard] * [wiki:"Space Matters"] and with a label: [wiki:"Space Matters" all about white space] * or simply: ["WikiPageName"]s * even better, the new [[WikiCreole link style]] and with a label: [[WikiCreole link style|WikiCreole style links]]
This will be rendered as:
- Wiki_page, ISO9000, and with a label: ISO 9000 standard
- Space Matters (that page name embeds space characters) and with a label: all about white space
- or simply: WikiPageNames (old MoinMoin's internal free links style)
- even better, the new WikiCreole link style and with a label: WikiCreole style links (since 0.12, also now adopted by MoinMoin)
Starting with Trac 0.11, it's also possible to link to a specific version of a Wiki page, as you would do for a specific version of a file, for example: WikiStart@1.
You can also prevent a CamelCase name to be interpreted as a TracLinks, by quoting it. See TracLinks#EscapingLinks.
As visible in the example above, one can also append an anchor to a Wiki page name, in order to link to a specific section within that page. The anchor can easily be seen by hovering the mouse over a section heading, then clicking on the ¶ sign that appears at its end. The anchor is usually generated automatically, but it's also possible to specify it explicitly: see WikiFormatting#using-explicit-id-in-heading.
