    How to Modify a Word Document on Your Website 


    1. Use Copy Word Doc to save a copy of the existing Word doc of your web page.


    1. Make edits to your Word doc, then Save your file.
    2. Browse… > (select your Word doc) > Open


    Note: WebFrame allows only Word docs with the ".doc" (Microsoft 97-2003 file version). If your document is ".docx" (Microsoft 2007 or newer), please save your Word document using the ".doc" file type. 

    1. Upload


    1. Then Preview or Publish your page.


    Overall Do's and Don'ts for Using Word Documents on the Web 


    ·   DO keep your Word Documents as SIMPLE as possible! Do not use text boxes within your Word Documents 


    ·   DO use the Word Doc examples on this site as a starting point for your web pages.


    ·   DO use consistent font style and size throughout your Word Docs to keep a professional look to your site. We recommend Arial or Verdana, size 10.


    ·   DO use the Clear Format tool when pasting text into your Word doc from another source. Clear format, removes "hidden" formatting and "junk code" which can be copied along with the text. You may get unexpected results when uploading your Word doc to the website if you don't start with "clean" text and do all formatting in the Word document. Note: If you are using the Edit HTML page type, choose OK when asked if you want to clean the code before pasting into the editing window.  


    ·   DO use as little paragraph formatting as possible in your Word docs. Many of Word's paragraph formatting and decorative text features do not convert for web display. Instead, put elements into table cells for custom placement of text or images. You can put borders on your table to assist with placement, then turn off the borders before uploading to the web. Here is an example:  


    Word Document in Tables - with borders 

    Word Document on the Web - no borders  




    Tip: If you are still having trouble with your Word doc not looking the same in Word as it does on the website, use the Clear Format tool in Word to remove all formatting, then reformat your document using as little paragraph and text formatting as possible. 


    ·   DO check your web page titles in the browser title bar to make sure they say what you want.  You can control this text by using the Word Document File > Properties > Title (Word 97-2003 or older) OR File > Prepare > Properties (Word 2007 or newer) input box within the Word Document.  Use keywords in your titles to help your site get listed with the search engines.  If Title box is blank in your word document, then the default meta title will display.  The following illustration shows the browser title in the blue box:

    ·   DO NOT use text boxes or decorative font formatting in Word.


    ·   DO NOT use high resolution images in Word. Instead resize and optimize your image for the web. (Recommended image size is 72 ppi at 100% of the size you are going to display.) Note: All other page types (except Word Doc and Edit HTML) that utilize image uploads will automatically optimize the images for you. 


    ·   DO NOT copy images from another source and past directly into the Word doc. Instead, use the image importing function in Word: Insert > Images > From File (Word 97-2003 or older) OR Insert > Picture (Word 2007 or newer).


    ·   DO NOT use Word to create forms - use the Contact Us Page Types supplied with your WebFrame. If you create a form using Word's form building tools, the form will NOT work when uploaded the website. This is because additional programming is needed to make a form work online. If you have custom form needs, please contact us.


    ·   DO NOT place links within your Word Doc unless it is absolutely necessary. They are high maintenance and often times the target of the link is moved or deleted leaving the visitor to your site with a link that does not work. If you must use links in your Word Docs, consider having our Broken Link Notification installed on your website to help you manage hyperlinks.
