Is there a feature (or plugin, or macro) in Trac that allows one to include sections from other wiki pages?

For instance, if each of my servers has a wiki page about it, and a section on the DNS info, is it possible to create a page that contains only the DNS sections of all the server pages? A link to the live section of course, not a copy.

Even better, some way to label sections and then have automatic summaries of them. e.g. Label a section "troubleshooting" on a server's page and it gets included in the "troubleshooting" summary page.

There's several options here

  1. Include Macro. I'm using this on a site and it works great.
  2. Include Pages Plugin, a fork of the Include Macro with more features.
  3. Wiki Include Plugin. This may be more what you're looking for though as it's limited to just another wiki page, as opposed to the others supporting external URLs.

Almost! But, unless I missed it, none of those solutions allow me include just a section of another page? – pufferfish May 10 '11 at 11:32
You could move that section to its own wiki page, then include it on the 2 pages it's needed on. – Bryan Drewery May 10 '11 at 13:25

You can use trac-admin "wiki import"/"wiki export" and any language to create page with DNS info.

No, that's going to give me a snapshot. I want to include the "live" section from another page. – pufferfish Feb 11 '11 at 10:21
