Most formatting disappears when editing (articles imported from Knol to Annotum)

  • Author

    I imported my articles from Knol into WordPress Annotum successfully (thanks to WordPress for making Annotum available, I think what WordPress is doing is great and they look better than the old Knol articles in terms of formatting as Google had not updated the Knol format for years).

    My problems is that the moment I try to edit anything in one of articles in Annotum which were formerly Knol articles, the whole article loses most of its formatting. In fact this happens the moment I push preview (I don’t even need to edit anything!). I have a lot of articles, do I need to go through each one and manually reform it. This is going to be a lot of work! Can anyone out there help with a suggestion?

    Any help gratefully received.

    Paul, I’ll tag this for staff attention since they are the only ones that can help with that. We volunteers know little to nothing about the Annotum stuff. Hopefully they will respond shortly and help you out. They also have the ability to look at your posts and such right in your site to see what is happening.



    Long shot, but have you tried going to Edit a post, Updating it before making any change, and then going from there? It might be that WP needs that extra push of the Update to register the Annotum formatting.


    Will try it on one I can afford to have the formatting disturbed on at the moment.
