So, last weekend I wrote a script that takes the export from a WordPress site and converts it into a Microsoft Word document (for submission to Smashwords or the Amazon Kindle store). It's pretty bare bones right now: it won't handle font changes, and the only formatting it accepts are italics (not bold, for example) because that's all I use in my books. Anyway, I wanted to see if I could make it more robust and see if it works as well for other people's stories as it does my own. It will insert a copyright page, a linked table of contents, and chapters based on post headings, however (and if you've worked with Smashwords before, it's the equivalent of the 'nuclear' formatting option, which minimizes the font styles used in the final document).
If anyone is interested in providing an export, please contact me at [email protected]
I'll return any word docs the script produces, and after getting feedback so I can update/improve the script I'll delete my copies of the docs and the provided exports.
