Updated 15 October 2021

Update (August 2021): PageSection now includes a feature that allows you to "Upload And Convert Word (.docx) Documents Into HTML Webpages" that is now available at convert-word-to-html-editor-project. The feature was developed and released after this article was already published and it currently only supports uploading files that end with a '.docx' file-name extension. However, the information in the article below is still valid. Feel free to use the new improved method stated above, or proceed with the article below. Kind regards.

For this post, we are going to summarize an easy method you can use to convert your text document into HTML content that can be used on a webpage. We will use the HTML Editor by PageSection. To start, visit www.pagesection.com/editor and select any of the trial/test/sample projects (no login required). Please Note: Trial/test/sample HTML Editor projects have certain limitations, such as not being able to save changes, and should only be used for testing or preview purposes. Feel free to create your own user account and be able to upload your own projects and gain full access to them including the ability to save changes. So lets get started.

1. Copy

Open your word document (or any other text file) on your computer, then highlight the target text and copy as you normally would.

2. Paste

Within your web browser, open the HTML Editor, and select the HTML page to edit from the pages menu. Once the selected page has been fully loaded in the preview, double-click to select any text on the page, and paste to replace with the contents copied in the previous step.

In some cases, the HTML page may be blank or it might not have any visible content to select and replace by clicking. In such cases, use the editor's sidebar to open the element structure and add or insert an HTML text node into the webpage. You can then proceed to double-click (select) the text node and replace the text contents with the text copied in the previous step.

3. Edit

Finally, you can proceed to edit the text content in the HTML Editor. Editing can be done in two (2) forms; either visually with both the sidebar editor panel options and the rich text editor, or programmatically using the code preview. This enables both programmers and non-programmers to use the editor with ease.

Notice: Do NOT forget to save. You can use the  Options button in the top right corner of the editor sidebar to access more options, such as Publish, File Structure, Previews, or to Exit the editor.

(Optional) Try it now: Open a sample project with the HTML Editor

Open a test sample project in the HTML Editor and use the information above to see the editor in action. Click on the button below to open the editor.

Even Better! Use Your Own HTML Website Template

Why not upload your own HTML website template(s) instead of using the sample projects? Custom user projects will enable multiple useful features in the editor such as Saving, HTML Page Management, and many more. All you have to do is upload a .zip file containing the HTML website template files. Sign up to create an account today or Log In into your user account and get started.

Benefits include;

  • URL web links for every uploaded file or web project. This may be useful if you want to share or preview the file in a browser. Very necessary when working with other clients and colleagues
  • Generate URL download links. Very useful when sharing project files
  • Edit anything on the HTML page. Any text and element on the page can be modified using the editor
  • Work with the DOM. The HTML element-structure of the page is accessible within the editor's sidebar
  • Live DOM updates. Content changes are synced (synchronized) across the editor's features
  • View and export generated code or content. Produce near optimized and unaltered HTML, CSS, JS output
  • Provided support for both programmers (with code editing) and non-programmers (with visual editing)
  • Suitable for all HTML web content creators for example copy-writers, bloggers, freelancers, and more
