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


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called Insider in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    wfLoadExtension( 'Insider' );
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Versions earlier than 1.3.0 required Extension:CustomData, which has since been archived.[1]


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

{{ #insider:Foo }}
