# The GeneralLinkSyntaxPlugin has functionality similar to Trac's upcoming InterWiki

Reported by: Owned by: Christian Boos Christian Boos lowest GeneralLinkSyntaxPlugin major

### Description

I just wanted to mention that the InterWiki functionality that I developped in the InterTrac branch may cover the same ground as this plugin.

However, those features are not yet part of the main Trac, so installing this plugin is probably an easier way to go than to switching to an experimental branch...

I'll update this ticket if/when the InterWiki features makes it in the official Trac version.

Feel free to request any feature you'd like to see, on the Trac's InterWiki page linked above.

One thing that comes to my mind would be to add compatibility with the link: prefix, perhaps.

version: stable → trunk

Thank you for comment. You are true, and I'm waiting InterTrac feature.

I know that the presense of InterTrac branch but I did not well understand it. As you mentioned, I wrote this plugin to use the feature immediately.

Yes, it is true that #T1414 (I didn't see it) is same to my one. So I'll use it of course on the day the InterTrac is merged.

Resolution: → fixed new → closed

I'm dropping a note here to mention that the InterTrac branch has been merged in the trunk for trac:milestone:0.10, and that the InterWiki links have support for parametric URLs (i.e. #T1414).

This means that the functionality achieved by this plugin is now part of the core Trac

The GeneralLinkSyntaxPlugin can nevertheless still be useful for milestone:0.9 installations, though I've also dropped a patch which adds intertrac/interwiki for milestone:0.9.3 and newer on ticket #T2041.

Finally, note that this comment is purposedly *overloaded* with intertrac links, for the sake of stress-testing that newly installed feature :)
