code and gibbish in previous blog artcles after upgrading to 2.6.

  • howiebar

    @howiebar

    After upgrading to 2.6 from 2.3, two issues occurred:

    1. I write my blog in MS WORD and cut and paste it to the blog. Been doing this for a year with no problems.

    After upgrading, line spaces between paragraphs, although showing in the “write” section of the blog, wouldn’t transfer to the actuall blog itself. I had to put period onm a separate line as a work-around.

    2. gibberish and code appears on previous blogs articles. You can check it all out at http://howiebarte.com/WordPress and email me at natca1@cox.net (that’s a number “one” not a letter “el” after the last “a”).

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    NEVER, EVER do this. Word adds junky code that can mess up browser display. Sorry, but to fix this, you will have to redo all of your pasted text by pasting it into a text editor like notepad and then recopy and pasting it into WordPress.

    Well, it worked fine until upgrading to WordPress 2.6, but I’ll try it. Three questions:

    1. Will it work in WordPad?

    2. Can I insert links in either Notepad or Wordpad?

    3. Will it work in WORD if you use RTF or simply text file?

    Thanks for the advise and any answer.

    1. Will it work in WordPad?

    The better choice would be notepad, as Wordpad does have a certain level of formatting. Personally, I have not used it, but my guess that like Word, it may generate some gibberish along with your entered text.

    2. Can I insert links in either Notepad or Wordpad?

    You can, but to do that, you will need to use the link anchor tags; <a>

    3. Will it work in WORD if you use RTF or simply text file?

    I do not understand what you are asking. Why would you want to paste your text back into word?

    There is a function in the visual editor since 2.6.1 (or so) “copy from MS Word”. I don’t use it, but I suppose that function will leave out the spans, etc.

    Can you tell me exactly where “copy from MSWord” is located? i can;t find it.

    Thanks.

    In that wyswyg monster you have the icons above the text area. Did you ever check out ALL of them (since you are using it, not me!)???
    The last one says “Show the kitchen sink”. Click it. You will get a second row of icons – among them 2 [two] yellow folders with the letters T and W on them. Click and read what they say.

    Found it. THANKS!

    I’ll try it and let you know how well it works.

    Thanks again.
