Uploading Word 2007 files

  1. Dear WordPress I have tried many times to upload a Word 2007 text document into a page but all I end up with is the file words in blue underlined text. When I open on the page a box opens up saying open or save file. What am I doing wrong ? Pictures seem to upload fine.

  2. Microsoft WORD is not web compliant. 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

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

    Posts > All Posts, change all your latest posts to Draft, click Update, change them back to Published, click Update again. (You can edit all of them at once: tick the square in front of their titles then select Edit from the Bulk Actions dropdown and click Apply.)

  3. If you use Word then you should use the Word cleanup feature to remove all extraneous tags from your text. From the visual editor click on the show kitchen sink button at the end of Row 1 and a Row 2 will appear.
