#4937 closed enhancement (fixed)

Allow linking to all Trac attachments for swf=<source>

Reported by: ogiesen Owned by: rudyryk
Priority: normal Component: FlashEmbedMacro
Severity: normal Keywords: flash attachment
Cc: ogiesen Trac Release: 0.11


It would be great if I could easily embed SWF videos that are attached to a ticket or wiki page rather than using the full http-link to the raw attachment.


  • [[Embed(attachment=tutorial.swf)]]
  • [[Embed(attachment=ticket:123:video.swf)]]
  • [[Embed(attachment=wiki:SomePage:movie.swf)]]

Alternatively allow attachment:-links for the swf-source, e.g.:

  • [[Embed(swf=attachment:tutorial.swf)]]
  • [[Embed(swf=attachment:ticket:123:video.swf)]]
  • [[Embed(swf=attachment:wiki:SomePage:movie.swf)]]

Thank you for the feedback! The feature is implemented in r5614. Watch examples at FlashEmbedMacro.

Thanks for looking into this! :)

However, ...
Sorry, doesn't work for me. The URL that gets generated is not valid on my system (trac 0.11.3).

Let's say my environment root is at /trac/myEnv and I'm trying to embed an attachment movie.swf that belongs to a wiki page named SomePage. The macro currently generates the following URL:


where AFAICT it should be:


I noticed that for instance the built-in [[Image()]] macro appears to use a utility function named get_resource_url() to expand the attachment link (e.g. here). Would that help, maybe?

  • Keywords flash attachment added
  • Resolution fixed deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

I see. Of course, this need to be fixed. Copy-paste complex code from Image-macro source seems a bit ugly, so some research and refactoring may need.

Thank you for detailed report! :)

  • Summary changed from allow linking to trac attachments for swf= source to Allow linking to all Trac attachments for swf=<source>

I'm seeing this same issue.

Also, the third example for using the attachment prefix syntax seems incorrect. It is shown as:


However, I don't even think that is a valid TracLinks syntax. The example should probably be:


which is the form of attachment linking that currently does not work for me.
