How to convert MS word document into Mediawiki page?

5 (talkcontribs)

I have a bunch of existing documents but we need to migrate everything to Mediawiki. I could not find any extension which converts text and images into mediawiki.

This only converts text and some level of formatting into Wiki but how can we convert images and other complex formatting into Wiki? Googled but no solution. Any help will be appreciated. (talkcontribs)

I used pandoc to convert well structured documents into mediawiki format. When the documents contains shapes, I converted them to PDF then uploaded them on the wiki. The CirrusSearch extensions allow to index those file content into the search index

The Extension:Html2Wiki extension uses pandoc under the covers to convert collections of HTML, including images, into mediawiki pages. Depending on the source documents, you may need to customize the extension, or use other tools to prepare your input. I haven't tested the functionality for MS Office generated HTML, but it's plausible to export Word to HTML, then use Html2Wiki to convert/import the content into your wiki.
