- Countries like Somalia, Syria, Iraq, and the Central African Republic tend to be high on the list. Look at a major country's travel warnings (like the UK's) – the destinations where all travel is discouraged can usually be assumed to be exceptionally dangerous (though there are sometimes exceptions). —Granger (talk · contribs) 18:55, 24 September 2020 (UTC)
I have prepared a comprehensive article of this little-known English county for the enlightenment of possible visitors. Here is my question: I have sourced 5 outstanding relevant copyright-free images, which will look best set 'indented' into the relevant part of the text. How do I achieve this? MUNDIMAPPA
The page I'm working on already has an excellent 'header' image right across the top of the page, which I don't intend to change. However...I have managed to source 4 excellent and extremely unusual mini-images, which I want to drop in alongside the relevant text. How do I go about this? MUNDIMAPPA ----
- @MUNDIMAPPA: If you took the photos and own the copyright, you can upload them to Wikimedia Commons. Then, add something like
- to the article you're working on. If you don't own the copyright, then unfortunately we probably cannot use the images (but feel free to post more details and I'm happy to give a more specific response). If you have any further questions, please let me know. —Granger (talk · contribs) 05:55, 1 October 2020 (UTC)
- Hi. There is no official offline version of Wikivoyage, however there is provision here to download PDF versions of individual articles, or to create a book from a series of articles of your choice; these are free services, and can be found in the left-hand sidebar on the desktop version, under 'Print/ export'.
- There is also at least one app available from the Play store, which you can download for free and which works completely offline. However, it's published by someone external to Wikivoyage, and so we can't guarantee that it is up-to-date or complete compared to the web version of Wikivoyage. Hope this helps, ThunderingTyphoons!

Possible informal discussion for WikiSalon?
We run a monthly small informal online meetup called the Philadelphia WikiSalon. We meet the second Saturday of each month: the next will be November 14. We usually have about 8 people, and spend most of two hours in demonstrations, discussions and questions. There is interest in hearing about different Wiki projects, and we would be interested in having someone drop in to give a quick outline of Wikivoyage. Would anyone be interested in dropping by? It's not formal at all, no need for slides or anything fancy, 5-10 minutes of screen share demo w/ questions would be fine. Mary Mark Ockerbloom (talk) 03:15, 28 October 2020 (UTC)
