Post Office

Do you want to post your Word/Excel files? Now you can! This plugin will post these files for you (more on their way).

What file type can this plug-in proccess

This plug-in can only process Word 2007 (.docx) and Excel 2007 (.xlsx) files.

How long does it take to parse the file

Depending on your server and hardware allocated to your WordPress installation it can take about less than a second for a single file on a weak server or even faster on stronger servers. This is much faster than any other method I could find to convert a Word Document to a WordPress Post/Page and it saves bandwidth as it is a ZIP file.

What is required on my server to run this plug-in

This plugin was written as a PHP 5 script. It might not work on earlier versions (not tested on versions prior to PHP 5). This plugin requires the following extensions for PHP to be active: ZLib; XML Parser; GD Image Library. These extensions are active in a default PHP 5 installation (it might have been disabled afterwards). The plugin will warn you if it can't find these.

After I uploaded a document and it was parsed, the result says other than WordPress says. What happened?

This is for example you uploaded a document and it displays an error, but you find the content in the Posts or It displays no error but the new post does not exist. This can only be caused by two or more documents being uploaded and parsed at the same time and another one finishing a moment after the first one before the last result could be shown on the user's screen and thus overwriting the previous result. It is not advisable to parse multiple files at the same time as this will result in very high load on the server's resources (this is also the reason for only able to parse a single file at a time). You are now able to view the log and look for the file you uploaded for the result.

When the State of the new post is set to Publish, the post/page's markup is not standards complient. Why is this?

This is caused by the function WordPress uses to insert the post. The function tries to add tags and other information to the output of our script. This results in non standards complient code published in the post/page. We have tried solving it, but then it was worse than now (we will continue to research solutions). If you want standards complient markup, set the state to draft and open the post/page in the edit page, where you can publish it from. This adds only the correct tags.

What formattings can be recognised by this plugin?

Currently this plugin can recognise Bold, Italics, Underlined, Strike-Through, Heading(1-3), Text Colors, Hyperlinks, Tables. This plugin can also extract text from formatted WordArt text, but it is still not possible to extract the colors and other details of the WordArt to replicate it.
