The following trac.ini configuration will create 2 new tabs on the main navigation bar, one named Google and the other named Edgewall, with the respective URLs and permissions, for example Google requires WIKI_VIEW, while Edgewall requires TRAC_ADMIN. The handlers for these items will be /tractab/Google and /tractab/My%20Blog:

tractab.* = enabled

names = Google, Edgewall
urls =,

Note: The perms parameter is optional, but if left unspecified, it requires the TRAC_ADMIN permission to view the tabs.
