As an IT administrator, you may come across the need to convert a Microsoft Word document into a Trac Wiki format. With Trac Wiki, you can easily share information with multiple users, collaborate on projects, and track changes. But, how do you go about converting a Word document into a Trac Wiki format?
The first step is to save the Word document in HTML format. To do this, open the document in Microsoft Word and then click “Save As” from the File menu. In the Save As dialog box, select “Web Page (*.htm, *.html)” from the “Save as type” drop-down list, and then click “Save”.
The next step is to open the saved HTML file in a text editor. You can use any text editor you choose, but for this example we’ll use Notepad. Copy the contents of the HTML file and paste them into a new file in Notepad.
Now, you need to convert the HTML code into Trac Wiki format. To do this, you’ll need to use the “Trac Wiki Markup” tool. This tool is available as a free download from the Trac Wiki website.
Once you’ve downloaded the Trac Wiki Markup tool, open it up and select the “Convert HTML to Trac Wiki” option. Then, copy the HTML code from your Notepad file and paste it into the text box in the Trac Wiki Markup tool. When you’re done, click “Convert” and the tool will generate the Trac Wiki markup for your document.
The last step is to copy the generated Trac Wiki markup and paste it into a new file in Notepad. Then, save the file with a .wiki extension and upload it to your Trac Wiki instance. Your Word document is now in Trac Wiki format and ready to be shared with other users.
As you can see, converting a Word document into Trac Wiki format is relatively straightforward. All you need is a text editor and the Trac Wiki Markup tool. Once you’ve followed the steps outlined above, you’ll be able to share information with multiple users using Trac Wiki quickly and easily.
