Wikivoyage holds monthly summits, where ambassadors from each language version can come together to report and discuss interesting news in their communities with the broader Wikivoyage community. The goal is to promote interlingual coordination and cooperation, and to more generally foster a spirit of cross-wiki community and shared endeavor.

Reports should include information such as major accomplishments, features being developed or implemented, features being discussed, technical issues, events, and examples of exceptional work being done.

February 2016[edit]


  • Now I have finished the Infobox/Quickbar for cities on de: I have rewritte the wikidata module as well. The quickbar is able to find the province article of any existing place by climbing up the geographical hierarchy on wikidata over districts and counties up to the provinces/prefectures/states. It also picks the qualifiers on wikidata for population and it compares your own data with wikidata. So you can activate Wikidata Tools do get a bigger quickbar with additional information like "different altitude on Wikidata" or something like that, including tools to edit Wikidata/the article. -- DerFussi 15:14, 9 February 2016 (UTC)


  • Has been activated for eswikivoyage WikidataPagebanner extension, but by the moment it was not integrated with Pagebanner template. --Zerabat (discusión) 10:59, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

  • On january, We has adopted a new sysops inactivity policy. This policy defines activity when sysop realices 15 log actions/edits on principal namespace.
  • Much time since the last news from eswikivoyage. Now, is my pleased to announce *drums*: Spanish Wikivoyage has reached the 2,000 travel guides! We are happy for this, and are preparing a event to impulse our project. The event is coming soon. Greetings, --White Master (es) 23:52, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

  • Discussion about the new maps technology, and about Visual Editor

May 2016[edit]


June 2016[edit]


  • The Wikidata-powered Quickbar is now in general use, all problems seem to have been solved.

July 2016[edit]


  • In order to improve the Wikidata-powered Quickbar many pieces of information on emergency phone numbers, electricity and location maps have been added to Wikidata. They can be used by Wikimedia projects as well as by external applications. A list with articles to work on can be found at voy:en:Category:Quickbar with missing information.

August 2016[edit]


  • Wikidata field in the listing editor. Easy item search, button to fill fields with values copied from Wikidata.


  • We have implemented this new feature as well and I'm working with Ryan to facilitate its implementation on other languages, adding minor changes (e.g. eliminate minor bugs/alert, adding minor new features and simplify JQuery and CSS code)

September 2016[edit]


  • Starting this month deployment of WikidataPageBanner extension has been done into the Pagebanner template, as it had been done by enwikivoyage. We found two issues related with this extension's banners:
    1. We at eswikivoyage had the habit of putting a flag alongside the title pagebanner in countries' guides (e.g. A flag of Morocco in a guide about Morocco). But it seems not to be possible with WDPB extension, as shows the flag image code as text and not recognises the wikicode. Therefore, temporarily we have to remove the flags.
    2. The second issue has already been found by enwikivoyage users, and it is the WDPB pagebanner displaces the breadcrumb (IsPartOf template) and map title icon below the pagebanner. While this is not resolved, it's necessary to add a tweak or hack into Common.css and Common.js in order to force displaying in the right position. (see voy:en:Special:Permalink/3039883#Breadcrumb_menu_and_map_icon_dropping_below_the_banner).
  • We started testing an update of Listing Editor v2.1 based on the code of enwikivoyage but localised. --Zerabat (discusión) 11:15, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
