Using Search

There is a built-in search engine to allow finding occurrences of keywords and substrings in wiki pages, tickets and changeset descriptions in the current project. Using the search facility is straightforward and its interface should be familiar.

Apart from the Search module (navigation), you will also find a small search field above the navigation bar at all time. It provides convenient access to the search module from all pages.

Note: Searching is supported for most data and metadata entered as part of the project, except source code and attachments. Files are not indexed.

Quickjumps

For intermediate and advanced use, Trac has a useful way to quickly navigate to a given resource, named quickjumps.

If you enter a direct link in the search field above the navigation bar, it will be recognized and you will be taken directly to the destination.

For example:

  • [42] -- Opens change set 42
  • #42 -- Opens ticket number 42
  • {1} -- Opens report 1
  • WikiStart -- Opens the wiki page with this name

Note: This is a particularly useful feature to quickly navigate to a specific issue ticket or changeset.

Advanced: Disabling Quickjumps

To disable the quickjump feature for a search keyword - for example when searching for occurences of the literal word TracGuide - begin the query with an exclamation mark (!).

From the Wiki, it is possible to link to a specific search, using search: links:

  • search:?q=crash will search for the string "crash"
  • search:?q=trac+link&wiki=on will search for "trac" and "link" in wiki pages only
