New words created by smashing together capitalized words.
CamelCase is the original wiki convention for creating hyperlinks, with the additional requirement that the capitals are followed by a lower-case letter; hence “AlabamA” and “ABc” will not be links.
Customizing the Wiki behavior
Some people dislike linking by CamelCase. While Trac remains faithful to the original Wiki style, it provides a number of ways to accomodate users with different preferences:
- There's an option (ignore_missing_pages in the [wiki] section of TracIni) to simply ignore links to missing pages when the link is written using the CamelCase style, instead of that word being replaced by a gray link followed by a question mark.
That can be useful when CamelCase style is used to name code artifacts like class names and there's no corresponding page for them.
- There's an option (split_page_names in the [wiki] section of TracIni) to automatically insert space characters between the words of a CamelCase link when rendering the link.
- Creation of explicit Wiki links is also easy, see WikiPageNames for details.
- In addition, Wiki formatting can be disabled completely in some places (e.g. when rendering commit log messages). See wiki_format_messages in the [changeset] section of TracIni.
See TracIni for more information on the available options.
