    What kind of workflow do people have in getting MS Word docs into WordPress? I’m web editor for a publication that sends me articles for posting as Word Docs. What I’ve been doing is using Pandoc to convert to HTML and then manually fiddling with things to make them work (Pandoc tends to put

    tags in everything and blockquotes in odd places.).

    I know I can’t be the first one to deal with this, so what solutions have others found?


    for posting as Word Docs

    Should that be “for posting as HTML web pages“?

    I don’t tend to use WordPress, but I and/or the folks I work with use Joomla! (and various home-baked CMSs that use TinyMCE), so the process should be somewhat similar.

    1. Receive Word doc
    2. Select all from Word doc, then copy+paste into Notepad (or other plain text editor – to strip out all formatting)
    3. Select all from Notepad, then copy+paste into WYSIWYG web editor
    4. Use the WYSIWYG editor’s own toolbar to re-format the text
