All my blog contents are well prepared in MS Word. Some contents have image flow chart.

On copying the contents from Word doc, i am not able to copy the Images.

How should i copy both contents and images from word doc to the Blog?


Is there any way to upload each doc file which will directly extract the contents including images from Word doc to the Wordpress.

The better way would be to use Windows Live Writer. It's a Microsoft product that's part of the Windows Live Essentials suite.

This program allows you to copy-paste content from a Word document, or just build the post out as you would in Word. But the advantage is that it can also talk directly to your WordPress site using XML-RPC.

This means you can write your post locally, format images locally, and get everything set up locally just as you would in Word. Then you hit publish, and Writer will push the content and your images to your site.

  • Thank you. I am installing Windows Live Writer. What does your second line do ? You said some thing about XML-RPC

  • XML-RPC is the way Writer talks to your site. You don't need to understand it to use it, you just need to make sure it's turned on for your site. Go to Settings > Writing and check the box next to "Enable the WordPress, Movable Type, MetaWeblog and Blogger XML-RPC publishing protocols." under Remote Publishing. Then follow the instructions that Writer gives you to connect to the site.

  • I am facing a new issue. I tried to publish the Word - .doc to Wordpress. I am getting an error message as " Word cannot publish the pictures in this post. The most likely cause of this problem is that you do not have enough storage space. Contact your provider and try again, or choose a different picture provider.

  • Publishing from Word or from Windows Live Writer?

WordPress is a Content Management System that is designed for content to be created within the application itself; it is not a Microsoft document conversion system.

I recommend that, if you intend to publish your content via a content management system such as WordPress, you get out of the habit of developing your content in non-CMS applications, and instead get in the habit of creating your content within your CMS.

WordPress supports rich-text editing, which precludes the need to pre-format your text in a word processor. WordPress also supports attachment/insertion of images and other types of embedded content. If need to include a flow chart, create it in Visio (or your app of choice), save it as an image, and upload/attach it via the in-post media manager.

  • I agree with you to an extent. But, we got all our contents in a doc file. We have around 50 doc files. Each file has some image flow chart on it.
