Converting your blog posts to wiki pages

Today I worked out a neat hack to get our blog posts from Ecto into our wiki without having to reformat.

  • Simply view the html of the blog post. In Ecto this mean clicking on the < > toggle at the bottom of the screen.
  • Copy the html.
  • Paste the html into HTML::WikiConverter and click “Convert HTML to wiki markup” and hey presto the wiki markup version appears.
  • Copy the wiki markup version into your wiki.
