Wiki Page Names


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:

  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 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_page]], [[ISO9000]],
   and with a label: [[ISO9000| ISO 9000 standard]]
*[["Space| Matters"]]
   and with a label: [["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:

  and with a label:  ISO 9000 standard
  • Matters" (that page name embeds space characters)
  and with a label:  Matters" all about white space
  • or simply: ["WikiPageName"]s (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 html(¶) 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.
