One of the Wikivoyage extensions. Apparently used to list volunteer tour guides for travel destinations.


  • Download and move the extracted Insider folder to your extensions/ directory.
    Developers and code contributors should install the extension from Git instead, using:cd extensions/
    git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/mediawiki/extensions/Insider
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'Insider' );
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.



Once installed a magic word is available. When used on a page it will create a sidebar like so:

{{ #insider:Foo }}
