    3 Trac 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.

    19 That target environment name is either the real name of the environment or an alias for it.
     15That target environment name is either the real name of the environment or an alias.
    2016The aliases are defined in the `trac.ini` file, see below.
    2117The prefix is case insensitive.

    23 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, ie the above would be displayed as `WikiExtrasPlugin`.
     19If 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. For example, the above would be displayed as `WikiExtrasPlugin`.
    2420
    25 For convenience, there is also an alternative short-hand form, where an alias can be used as an immediate prefix for the identifier of a ticket, changeset or report, eg `#T234`, `[T1508]`, `[trac 1508]`.

    29 It is necessary to set up a configuration for the InterTrac facility.
    30 This configuration has to be done in the TracIni file, `[intertrac]` section, for example:
     25The only prefix defined by default is `trac`, which points to trac.edgewall.org. Additional prefixes can be specified in the [TracIni#intertrac-section intertrac] section of TracIni. For example:
    3126
    3227{{{#!ini
     
    3631
    3732# -- Link to an external Trac:
    38 trac.title = Edgewall's Trac for Trac
    39 trac.url = http://trac.edgewall.org
     33genshi.title = Edgewall's Trac for Genshi
     34genshi.url = http://genshi.edgewall.org
    4035}}}
    4136
    4237The `.url` is mandatory and is used for locating the other Trac.
    43 This can be a relative URL in case that Trac environment is located on the same server.
     38It can be a relative URL when the Trac environment is located on the same server.
    4439
    4540The `.title` information is used in a tooltip, ie when hovering the cursor over an InterTrac link.
     
    4944   * `trac:wiki:InterTrac` trac:wiki:InterTrac
    5045   * `t:wiki:InterTrac` t:wiki:InterTrac
     46   * `genshi:InterTrac` genshi:InterTrac
    5147   * Keys are case insensitive: `T:wiki:InterTrac` T:wiki:InterTrac
    5248 * to the ticket #234:
    5349   * `trac:ticket:234` trac:ticket:234
    5450   * `trac:#234` trac:#234
     51   * `genshi:#234` genshi:#234
    5552   * `#T234` #T234
    5653 * to the changeset [1912]:
     
    6259   * 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]` (note that the ''remote'' Trac has to run Trac >= 0.11 for this to work'')

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