just trying to upload word content - keeping the formatting - should be basic!

  1. I want to paste from my word document - and keep the original formatting - text size, shading - rather than have everything homogenized.
    Then when I attempted to insert the document, all that showed up on the post was the title of the document - not the attachment's content.
    Thank you.
    (I don't know how people not already in the know can figure out how to use this entire service - to me it is awkward and not explained enough.)

  2. You can't. Word is NOT a web program, it is for print media and the junk code it creates kills websites which is why wordpress automatically strips it out.

    Get Windows Live Writer, a free download and then compose in that and you can even post directly from it to your site here.

    Go here for a good start on using wordpress.com: http://learn.wordpress.com/ .

  3. Microsoft WORD is not web compliant. http://en.support.wordpress.com/microsoft-word/ If you have been copying and pasting text from elsewhere without using either icon 5 or icon 6 in Row 2 of the visual editor, please see here http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text

    Go to Settings > Writing and select “ ___ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically” and then scroll down and click “Save Changes.”

    The attachments in a WORD document on your own computer cannot be displayed unless you upload them into the WordPress.com servers. The following processes are outlined particularly for users who wish to upload a document and add its download link to a blog post or page. If you are seeking to simply upload a document to your blog’s Media Library (no download link), you can check out Media -> Add New in your dashboard. http://support.wordpress.com/media/media-add-new/

    If you want to embed the document itself, you will have to use a third party application like Scribd or Google Docs. Otherwise, the documents will appear as a download link.

  4. Windows Live Writer (WLW) by Microsoft is an application for composing and managing blog posts. You can write your posts offline and publish them in your blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/xml-rpc/windows-live-writer/
