  • TracNavigation

    v1 v1  
     1= Trac Navigation
     3The main and meta navigation entries can be customized in some basic ways. The `[mainnav]` and `[metanav]` configuration sections can be used to customize the text and link used for the navigation items, or even to disable them. The `mainnav` and `metanav` options in the `[trac]` configuration section can be used to change the order.
     5=== `[mainnav]` #mainnav-bar
     7`[mainnav]` corresponds to the '''main navigation bar''', the one containing entries such as ''Wiki'', ''Timeline'', ''Roadmap'', ''Browse Source'' and so on. This navigation bar is meant to access the default page of the main modules enabled in Trac that are accessible for the current user.
     9** [=#Example Example] **
     11In the following example we rename the link to the Wiki start "Home", and make the "View Tickets" entry link to a specific report. The second example below also hides the "!Help/Guide" link.
     13Relevant excerpt from the TracIni:
     16wiki.label = Home
     17tickets.href = /report/24
     20=== `[metanav]` #metanav-bar
     22`[metanav]` corresponds to the '''meta navigation bar''', by default positioned above the main navigation bar and below the ''Search'' box. It contains the ''Log in'', ''Logout'', ''!Help/Guide'' etc. entries. This navigation bar is meant to access some global information about the Trac project and the current user.
     24There is one special entry in the  `[metanav]` section: `logout.redirect` is the page the user sees after hitting the logout button.
     25[[comment(see also #Trac3808)]]
     27** Example **
     31help = disabled
     32logout.redirect = wiki/Logout
     35=== Notes
     37Possible URL formats for `.href` or `.redirect`:
     38|| '''config''' || '''redirect to''' ||
     39|| `wiki/Logout` || `/projects/env/wiki/Logout` ||
     40|| `http://hostname/` || `http://hostname/` ||
     41|| `/projects` || `/projects` ||
     43=== `[trac]` #nav-order
     45The `mainnav` and `metanav` options in the `[trac]` configuration section control the order in which the navigation items are displayed (left to right). This can be useful with plugins that add navigation items.
     47** Example **
     49In the following example, we change the order to prioritise the ticket related items further left.
     51Relevant excerpt from the TracIni:
     54mainnav = wiki,tickets,newticket,timeline,roadmap,browser,search,admin
     57The default order and item names can be viewed in the [TracIni#trac-section trac section of TracIni].
     59=== Context Navigation #ctxtnav-bar
     61Note that it is still not possible to customize the '''contextual navigation bar''', ie the one usually placed below the main navigation bar.
     64See also: TracInterfaceCustomization, and the [ TracHacks:NavAddPlugin] or [ TracHacks:MenusPlugin] (still needed for adding entries)
