Display another wiki page within a wiki page


This plugin allows full Trac wiki pages to be displayed inside other Trac wiki pages. This is useful if there is a piece of content (such as a contact table or log) that needs to be displayed in multiple places, as it eliminates the need for each instance of this content to be maintained.

  • Manually:
    • Download and untar the source directory.
    • Drop the compiled egg into the plugins directory of your Trac instance:
      $ python bdist_egg
      $ cp dist/CustomSelectAdmin<ADDITIONAL-INFO>.egg <PATH-TO-TRAC-INSTANCE>/plugins
  • Globally:
    • easy_install the egg so it will apply to all Trac instances:
      $ easy_install TracSubPages

Add the following lines to your trac.ini file:

TracSubPages.* = enabled

Or, if you you don't have access to trac.ini but do have the TRAC_ADMIN permission (the Admin panel shows up in the main nav when you're logged in), you can go to the Plugins section within the Admin area and check 'Enabled' next to CustomSelectAdmin.


The syntax for the subpage macro is as follows:

[[subpage(wiki_page[, show_link])]]

Where wiki_page is the wiki page. No url is needed here, nor a wiki/ prefix, just the page.

The macro supports pages that aren't top-level too ('BigCategory/SpecificSubject'). The second argument, showlink is an optional argument (true or false) that determines whether or not a link to edit the rendered page will be shown at the bottom of the subpage section. The link reads 'Edit Section' and provides a link directly to the edit page of the referenced wiki page.
