    3 Starting with Trac 0.11, it is now possible to customize the main and meta navigation entries in some basic ways.
     3The main and meta navigation entries can be customized in some basic ways. The `[mainnav]` and `[metanav]` configuration sections can be used to customize the navigation item text and link, change the ordering of the navigation items, or even disable them.
    44
    5 The new `[mainnav]` and `[metanav]` configuration sections can now be used to customize the text and link used for the navigation items, or even to disable them.
     5=== `[mainnav]` #mainnav-bar
     6`[mainnav]` corresponds to the '''main navigation bar''', the one containing entries such as ''Wiki'', ''Timeline'', ''Roadmap'', ''Browse Source'' and so on. This navigation bar is meant to access the default page of the main modules enabled in Trac that are accessible for the current user.
    67
    7 `[mainnav]` corresponds to the '''main navigation bar''', the one containing entries such as ''Wiki'', ''Timeline'', ''Roadmap'', ''Browse Source'' and so on. This navigation bar is meant to access the default page of the main modules enabled in Trac and accessible for the current user.
    88
    9 `[metanav]` corresponds to the '''meta navigation bar''', by default positioned above the main navigation bar and below the ''Search'' box. It contains the ''Log in'', ''Logout'', ''Help/Guide'' etc. entries. This navigation bar is meant to access some global information about the Trac project and the current user.
     9** [=#Example Example] **
    1010
    11 Note that it is still not possible to customize the '''contextual navigation bar''', i.e. the one usually placed below the main navigation bar.
    12 
    13 === Example ===
    14 
    15 In the following example, we rename the link to the Wiki start "Home", and hide the "Help/Guide" link.
    16 We also make the "View Tickets" entry link to a specific report.
    17 
    18 Relevant excerpt from the TracIni:
    19 {{{
     11In the following example we rename the link to WikiStart //Home//, and make the //View Tickets// entry link to a specific report.
     12{{{#!ini
    2013[mainnav]
    2114wiki.label = Home
    2215tickets.href = /report/24
     16}}}
     17
     18=== `[metanav]` #metanav-bar
     19`[metanav]` corresponds to the '''meta navigation bar''', by default positioned above the main navigation bar and below the ''Search'' box. It contains the ''Login'', ''Logout'', ''!Help/Guide'' etc. entries. This navigation bar is meant to access some global information about the Trac project and the current user.
     20
     21There is one special entry in the  `[metanav]` section: `logout.redirect` is the page the user sees after hitting the logout button.  The ''!Help/Guide'' link is also hidden in the following example.
     22[[comment(see also #Trac3808)]]
     23
     24** Example **
     25
     26{{{#!ini
     27[metanav]
     28help = disabled
     29logout.redirect = wiki/Logout
     30}}}
     31
     32
     33=== URL Formats
     34Possible URL formats for `.href` or `.redirect`:
     35|| '''config''' || '''redirect to''' ||
     36|| `wiki/Logout` || `/projects/env/wiki/Logout` ||
     37|| `http://hostname/` || `http://hostname/` ||
     38|| `/projects` || `/projects` ||
     39
     40
     41=== Ordering #nav-order
     42The `order` attribute specifies the order in which the navigation items are displayed. This can be particularly useful for plugins that add navigation items.
     43
     44Non-negative floating point values may be used for the `order` attribute. The navigation items will be arranged from left to right in increasing order. Navigation items without an `order` attribute are sorted alphabetically by name.
     45
     46The default values are:
     47{{{#!ini
     48[mainnav]
     49browser.order = 4
     50newticket.order = 6
     51roadmap.order = 3
     52search.order = 7
     53tickets.order = 5
     54timeline.order = 2
     55wiki.order = 1
    2356
    2457[metanav]
    25 help = disabled
     58about.order = 5
     59help.order = 4
     60login.order = 1
     61logout.order = 2
     62prefs.order = 3
    2663}}}
    2764
     65=== Context Navigation #ctxtnav-bar
     66
     67Note that it is still not possible to customize the '''contextual navigation bar''', ie the one usually placed below the main navigation bar.
