CamelCase

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 [wiki]) 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 [wiki]) 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 TracIni for more information on the available options.
