NOTE: This page is a daughter page of: Wiki


MediaWiki's (such as this one) have a special code-like syntax to represent text. For example:

==Heading 2==                   - equal signs are used for different headings
text '''bold''' or ''italic''             - 3 single quote marks for bold or 2 for italic
[http://www.url.com/ link]      - for link

The syntax isn't too hard to learn, but if you have a heap of text already formatted as rich text (eg: a word document) it's a real pain to convert. On this page I'll keep track of any reliable methods I find which can take rich text or even HTML and convert it into MediaWiki syntax.

Methods to Convert Rich Text to MediaWiki Syntax

  • Sun Wiki Publisher - open office export which allows you to export an open office text document as MediaWiki text.
