[resolved] MAKE ALL WORDS CAPITALS? like that!? (8 posts)

    Hi,
    If you write lots of text in a page on wordpress, how do you then select it all and make every word into capital letters. This can be done in word, but if you copy and paste into wordpress it loses the capitals. So any idea how to select all without rewriting?

    select it all and make every word into capital letters.

    My knee-jerk, yet serious first response would be, why not turn on caps lock when you are writing the section you need to be in all upper case? But I digress...

    This can be done in word, but if you copy and paste into wordpress it loses the capitals

    Have you tried using the "Paste From Word" button on your tool bar to see if it preserves the formatting when using text created in MSWord?

    On another note, why would you want to routinely do such a thing?

    The reason for doing such a thing is for inserting documents such as privacy policy/disclaimers which are required to be in capitals. Also i just tried using the paste from word button but it still doesnt preserve the formatting
    Any other ideas?

    Why not use the CSS's text-transform property?

    Simplest solution. Create the text in the wordpress editor using upper case where needed to begin with, or create it in a plain text editor and paste it from that.

    Second possibility: Add a class to your style sheet to transform the text to uppercase. Example:

    .myclass {text-transform:uppercase;}

    Then wrap the text you want in upper case in a div with the class of "myclass".

    Third possibility: Create your document in MSWord. Try pasting it in the editor using the "Paste as Plain Text" tool in the tool bar, and see if that makes any difference.
