Html2wiki is not import the files

6 (talkcontribs)

Hi Greg,

I would like to ask your help.

Added the html2wiki to site and seems to be working, but facing with 2 issues:

Not getting visible Import HTML in the tools.

The second that the import is not working, they log is not so talky, i simply saved a file in word to html but if i check the dry run and it won't import anything.

Ran to the settings but according to that it seems fine.

Thank you,

In order to get "Import Html" in the tools menu, you need to edit the tools menu by hand. See the "modules/MediaWiki:Common.js" file included with Html2Wiki for more info. By default, with no tools customization, you must navigate to the Special:Html2Wiki page. That page is restricted to Admin users unless you specifically make other permissions.

If you could produce a file for testing, I could possibly see what's wrong.

it was a simple test file saved in word 2016 to html :) only 'test' text was in it.

I don't have Word 2016, so I can't reproduce the problem. However, Word doesn't produce good HTML and that's why Html2Wiki doesn't support Microsoft products.

If your starting source is in the proprietary .doc format, there are other ways that you can convert that to HTML that might work. For example, if you convert it with LibreOffice from .doc to .html then Html2Wiki might be able to import that source. (talkcontribs)

Okay, just tested with a very simple html file:







Result in dry run:

Preview only! Contents were not saved:

<source id="h2wContent" lang="html4strict">


  • testhtml.html (43 bytes) text/html

Probably i miss something basic, but not sure what..

Hi Greg,

Any ideas what i can check?

Tried to check the logs, read many times the install guide, but still no idea.

As you can see with a simple html is not working also.

Not sure what i should check.

Thank you,
