Cleaning of content pasted in WordPress from Microsoft Word

Cleaning of content pasted in WordPress from Microsoft Word

A common issue when working in WordPress is the drafting of documents in an outside application, such as Microsoft Word. When content is drafted, copied and pasted into WordPress, it is very common for the background style code of the application to be brought along with it. This results in WordPress content with strange fonts, colors, underlines, etc.

Here are 2 (of many) of ways to resolve this:

  1. pasteastextPaste as Text – WordPress has a selector to resolve this right in the editing window. When selected, pasting content into a post/page will auto remove any formatting pulled from another application.
  2. This can also be accomplished by pasting with the “no formatting paste” shortcut – Shift + Option + Command + V
