Issues with Images copied over in editor from Word

Akshayboston (talkcontribs)

Urgent Support Request:- I have successfully hosted and implemented MediaWiki . Only problem is that we have Word documents to upload as Wiki pages. The current editor allows only text to be copied over and Images are not when you copy and paste it from word. Is there a way for images to be copied over as well ?

We have over 200 documents and only way in Mediawiki is to extract images and upload one by one.

Is there an editor or plugin we can use which allows content and images to be pasted from work in editor ?

You can use pandoc to convert to wikitext. But, yeah, it looks like your upload options are limited then.

You could stitch the uploads and documents together into one big XML file that you could import. I've done that before with some stuff that was already wikitext, but it is going to take a SMOP to do all that for you.

Thanks, I will try to load Extension:Html2Wiki as suggested which uses Pandoc as Mark also mentioned.
