Removing MS Word Tags 

Copying and pasting directly from a program like MS Word, emails or other webpages is one of the easiest ways to destroy your site. When you copy and paste directly from these sources, there is hidden formatting in the text that can cause the page to break. If you have already added text copied from any of these places onto your site then we recommend that you remove the unwanted formatting in order to resolve or prevent any future issues.

If the content is added to a text widget, follow these steps:

  1. Click on your text widget to make it active.
  2. The text editing toolbar will appear.
  3. Click on the HTML button on the toolbar (the last button on the right of the toolbar).
  4. The HTML Editor will open up containing the HTML code of your text.
  5. Copy all the HTML code. Please make sure all the HTML code is copied.
  6. Paste the HTML code in the editor below.
  7. Click on "Strip formatting".
  8. It will strip all the unwanted formatting within the HTML code.
  9. Once done, it will give you a preview of what the text will look like.
  10. Now copy all the corrected HTML code and paste it back into the HTML editor on your page. Make sure you copy and paste all the code.
  11. Click on "OK" in the editor once done.
  12. If any of the wanted formatting is removed, for example Bold or Underlined, then I would suggest using the HTML Helper to re-format some of the text. You can also use the text editing toolbar in the text widget to format the text again.
If you content is added to a Blog page, please follow these steps:
  1. Click on the "Blog Manager" button on your page
  2. Open the blog post which was copied and pasted directly from MS Word, email or webpage.
  3. View the HTML code of your content (Click on the HTML button on the toolbar, the last button on the right of the toolbar)
  4. Copy all the HTML code. Please make sure all the HTML code is copied.
  5. Paste the HTML code in the editor below.
  6. Click on "Strip formatting".
  7. It will strip all the unwanted formatting within the HTML code.
  8. Once done, it will give you a preview of what the text will look like.
  9. Now copy all the corrected HTML code and paste it back into the HTML editor on your page. Make sure you copy and paste all the code.
  10. Click on the HTML button on your toolbar to view your text
