Do you remember when Mac computers first came out how hard it was to get MS Word to work on them? I remember I had to get a special version that worked with Mac and it was way too expensive, and wouldn’t integrate properly with the regular Windows version.
I had files that I saved and couldn’t open on my work computer, so I would have to copy and paste everything manually. This would take me hours and as a result, I couldn’t enjoy the product.
Well, this same situation is repeating itself with MS Doc but this time it’s exporting a document to WordPress that’s the issue, and this issue is affecting content teams everywhere.
Let me explain.
There are millions of blogs that run on WordPress today because it’s simply awesome. There are hundreds of useful plugins you could use, lots of free or cheap templates you could buy, and lots of great talented designers that can build you a WordPress blog.
Most content teams that run a blog on WordPress tend to organize and keep their drafts somewhere else, like MS Word. The problem is that in order to export your MS Word document into WordPress you would have to manually copy and paste everything.
And then everything comes out looking like rubbish, the formatting is all off, the images need to be saved and uploaded one by one, and this whole process takes hours!
