Integrate ShowPath into Trac


This plugin integrates the functionality provided by the ShowPathMacro into Trac.

The path to the current wiki page is added to the Start Page link in the Wiki NavBar. All the parts of the path to the current page will be linked except for the current, allowing you to see the WikiPage you are on and moving up in a hierarchical WikiPage.

If TracHacks used this patch the Start Page link in the NavBar would look like this: Start Page / TracShowPathPatch

If we had a hierachical page like Book/Chapter/Section/Subsection it would look like this: Start Page / Book / Chapter / Section / Subsection

New hack TracShowPathPatch, created by mhuysamen


Author: mhuysamen
Maintainer: Marius Huysamen


I added this hack to the Trac 0.10 dev trunk using the 0.94 patch and added a css class. Works great!

The patch for the 0.94 version is out of line, so I edited the file and deleted the pyc file and restarted tracd. The css code added to my project/templates/site_css.cs file is as follows:

div.wikinav {
        position: absolute;
        top: 190px;
        left: 10px;
        color: #ccc;
        text-transform: lowercase;
        letter-spacing: 0.5em;
        display: block;

The ticket now has instructions for Trac 0.10.4.
