     3Trac supports a convenient way to refer to resources of other Trac servers, from within the Wiki markup. An !InterTrac link can be seen as a scoped TracLinks. It is used for referring to a Trac resource located in another Trac environment. A resource can be a wiki page, changeset, ticket or milestone.

    2517The other resource is specified using a regular TracLinks, of any flavor.

    27 That target environment name is either the real name of the  
    28 environment, or an alias for it.  
     19That target environment name is either the real name of the environment or an alias for it.  
    2920The aliases are defined in `trac.ini` (see below). 
    3021The prefix is case insensitive. 
    3122 
    32 If the InterTrac link is enclosed in square brackets (like `[th:WikiExtrasPlugin]`), the InterTrac prefix is removed in the displayed link, like a normal link resolver would be (i.e. the above would be displayed as `WikiExtrasPlugin`).

    34 For convenience, there's also some alternative short-hand form,  
    35 where one can use an alias as an immediate prefix  
    36 for the identifier of a ticket, changeset or report: 
    37 (e.g. `#T234`, `[T1508]`, `[trac 1508]`, ...)

    4129It is necessary to setup a configuration for the InterTrac facility.

    5643The `.url` is mandatory and is used for locating the other Trac. 
    57 This can be a relative URL in case that Trac environment is located  
    58 on the same server.

    6348Finally, the `.compat` option can be used to activate or disable 
     
    6752   link, and it's up to the local Trac to prepare the correct link.  
    6853   Not all links will work that way, but the most common do.  
    69    This is called the compatibility mode, and is `true` by default.  
     54   This is called the compatibility mode, and is `false` by default.  
    7055 * If you know that the remote Trac knows how to dispatch InterTrac links,  
    7156   you can explicitly disable this compatibility mode and then ''any''  
     
    8974 * finally, to link to the start page of a remote trac, simply use its prefix followed by ':', inside an explicit link. Example: `[th: Trac Hacks]` (''since 0.11; note that the ''remote'' Trac has to run 0.11 for this to work'')

    91 The generic form `intertrac_prefix:module:id` is translated 
    92 to the corresponding URL `<remote>/module/id`, shorthand links 
    93 are specific to some modules (e.g. !#T234 is processed by the 
    94 ticket module) and for the rest (`intertrac_prefix:something`), 
    95 we rely on the TracSearch#quickjump facility of the remote Trac.
