    v v1  
     1= Support for InterWiki links = 
     3''(since [milestone:0.10])'' 
     5== Definition == 
     7An InterWiki link can be used for referring to a Wiki page 
     8located in another Wiki system, and by extension, to any object 
     9located in any other Web application, provided a simple URL  
     10mapping can be done. 
     12== Link Syntax == 
     18The link is composed by the targeted Wiki (or system) name, 
     19followed by a column (e.g. {{{MeatBall:}}}), 
     20followed by a page specification in the target. 
     21Note that, as for InterTrac prefixes, InterWiki prefixes are case insensitive. 
     23The target Wiki URL is looked up in a the InterMapTxt wiki page,  
     24modelled after 
     25[ MeatBall:InterMapTxt]. 
     27In addition to traditional InterWiki links, where the target 
     28is simply ''appended'' to the URL,  
     29Trac supports parametric InterWiki URLs: 
     30identifiers `$1`, `$2`, ... in the URL 
     31will be replaced by corresponding arguments. 
     32The argument list is formed by splitting the page identifier 
     33using the ":" separator. 
     35== Examples == 
     37If the following is an excerpt of the InterMapTxt page: 
     40= InterMapTxt = 
     41== This is the place for defining InterWiki prefixes == 
     43Currently active prefixes: [[InterWiki]] 
     45This page is modelled after the MeatBall:InterMapTxt page. 
     46In addition, an optional comment is allowed after the mapping.

     62 * `MoinMoin:InterWikiMap` should be rendered as

     64   and the ''title'' for that link would be "!InterWikiMap in !MoinMoin" 
     65 * {{{TracML:4346}}} should be rendered as  
     66   [ TracML:4346] 
     67   and the ''title'' for that link would be "Message 4346 in Trac Mailing List"
