 +====== 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 `[[:​wiki]]`) 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 `[[:​wiki]]`) 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 TracIni for more information on the available options.
