Formatting text in Open Office

How to format text for Mediawiki export
When authoring your page, you will need to use the formatting features to ensure that Open Office is able to translate to Media-wiki text. The easiest way to do this is to use the style bar and formatting options:
  • Headings: Use the pull-down menu shown and select Heading 1, 2 & 3 for different level headings;
  • Tables: Use Table>Insert to create simple tables
  • Lists: Use Format>Bullets and Numbering to create simple bullet lists or numbered lists. Or use the formatting buttons for bullets and numbering displayed on the toolbar on top of your screeen Bullets numbering.png;
  • Normal text: Select Default text from the pull-down menu shown.

Remember to save a copy of your file in Open Office format (OpenDocument (.odt)) before exporting to wiki text by clicking on File>Save.

Note: If you insert an image into the document, this will not automatically upload the image. You will need to use the standard wiki text for images.

Exporting to MediaWiki format

Select File>Export
Open Office has an export feature which will automatically insert the wiki-text syntax used to format the display of your text in WikiEducator.


Once the document is finished:

  • click on File>Export,
  • select the MediaWiki (.txt) as the file type for your export,
  • choose the location for saving your file
  • click the on the save button.

Note: Open Yourfile.txt and you will see the Open Office has inserted the wiki tags (syntax) used for formating text in wikieducator.
