    v1 v2  
    33Starting with Trac 0.11, it is now possible to customize the main and meta navigation entries in some basic ways. 
    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. 
     5The 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.  The `mainnav` and `metanav` options in the `[trac]` configuration section can also be used to change the order. 
    66 
    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. 
     7=== `[mainnav]` #mainnav-bar 
     8`[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. 
    89 
    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. 
    1010 
    11 There is one special entry in the  `[metanav]` section: `logout.redirect` is the page the user sees after hitting the logout button.  
     11** [=#Example Example] **  
    1212 
    13 Possible URL formats: 
    14 || '''config''' || '''redirect to''' || 
    15 || `wiki/Logout` || `/projects/env/wiki/Logout` || 
    16 || `http://hostname/` || `http://hostname/` || 
    17 || `/projects` || `/projects` || 
    18 [[comment(see also #Trac3808)]] 
    19  
    20 Note that it is still not possible to customize the '''contextual navigation bar''', i.e. the one usually placed below the main navigation bar. 
    21  
    22 === Example === 
    23  
    24 In the following example, we rename the link to the Wiki start "Home", and hide the "!Help/Guide" link.  
    25 We also make the "View Tickets" entry link to a specific report. 
     13In the following example, we rename the link to the Wiki start "Home", and make the "View Tickets" entry link to a specific report.  The second example (below) also hides the "!Help/Guide" link. 
    2614 
    2715Relevant excerpt from the TracIni: 
     
    3018wiki.label = Home 
    3119tickets.href = /report/24 
     20}}}

     22=== `[metanav]` #metanav-bar 
     23`[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.

     28** Example **  
     29 
     30{{{ 
    3331[metanav] 
    3432help = disabled

     36 
     37=== Notes 
     38Possible URL formats (for `.href` or `.redirect`): 
     39|| '''config''' || '''redirect to''' || 
     40|| `wiki/Logout` || `/projects/env/wiki/Logout` || 
     41|| `http://hostname/` || `http://hostname/` || 
     42|| `/projects` || `/projects` || 
     43 
     44 
     45=== `[trac]` #nav-order 
     46The `mainnav` and `metanav` options in the `[trac]` configuration section control the order in which the navigation items are displayed (left to right).  This can be useful with plugins that add navigation items. 
     47 
     48** Example **  
     49 
     50In the following example, we change the order to prioritise the ticket related items further left. 
     51 
     52Relevant excerpt from the TracIni: 
     53{{{ 
     54[trac] 
     55mainnav = wiki,tickets,newticket,timeline,roadmap,browser,search,admin 
     56}}} 
     57 
     58The default order and item names can be found in the source, which at the time of writing [source:trunk/trac/web/chrome.py@10883:397,402-403#L396 is here] 
     59 
     60=== Context Navigation #ctxtnav-bar 
     61 
     62Note that it is still not possible to customize the '''contextual navigation bar''', i.e. the one usually placed below the main navigation bar.
