I have completed an article on Word that has embedded pictures and tables imported from a variety of sources. When I tried a simple copy-paste from Word to the Article page the photos and table did not appear.
What is the simplest method of transferring this type of document?
I think that the only way is for photos to be uploaded as normal and then use the Mindat edit links for the photos. For tables you would either have to create them as a photo and import, or create a table using the Mindat mark-up language.
Keith is correct, essentially. Lately I have been writing for mindat. I wanted to write off-line and upload. I was asked to please not try it. Anything uploaded or copy-and-pasted evidently requires a lot of tedious editing. As a result, I have done the writing using the mindat editor that is accessible through your mindat page. At first the Mindat markup language gave me some considerable problems, but once I figured it out, it is not bad. You can do most things from the toolbar at the top of the editor And if you know any HTML, you can do some things that are not included. I am no expert but I will try to help if you PM me/
