CamelCase

New words created by smashing together capitalized words. CamelCase is the original wiki convention for creating hyperlinks, with the additional requirement that the capitals are followed by a lower-case letter; hence “AlabamA” and “ABc” will not be links.

Customizing the Wiki behavior

Some people dislike linking by CamelCase. While Trac remains faithful to the original Wiki style, it provides a number of ways to accomodate users with different preferences:

* There's an option (ignore_missing_pages in the [wiki] section of TracIni)
to simply ignore links to missing pages when the link is written using
the CamelCase style, instead of that word being replaced by a gray link
followed by a question mark.
That can be useful when CamelCase style is used to name code artifacts
like class names and there's no corresponding page for them.
* There's an option (split_page_names in the [wiki] section of TracIni) to
automatically insert space characters between the words of a CamelCase
link when rendering the link.
* Creation of explicit Wiki links is also easy, see WikiPageNames for
details.
* In addition, Wiki formatting can be disabled completely in some places
(e.g. when rendering commit log messages). See wiki_format_messages in
the [changeset] section of TracIni.

See TracIni for more information on the available options.
