It is incredible but it is such hard to find a good HTML to MediaWiki converter. So, if you want to convert a webpage to Wiki format to be included on a MediaWiki site, there are several solutions around, but the amazing thing is that none works fine.
HARD TO USE - NON FULLY TESTED:
mwlib - OpenDocument Export - It is Phyton and I have no idea how to run it.
MWImporter - It is a web script that you have to set up yourself. I just want something that I can run on my PC,
CSPAN - HTML WikiConverter - It is a web script that you have to set up yourself. I just want something that I can run on my PC,
pandoc! - WebSiste- Limited to 1000 character or less.
http://w-i-k-i.appspot.com/ - WebSite - Works but does not do a good job. When trying to convert HTML to MediaWiki the result was not good, all stuff moved, it did not generated a good MediaWiki article.
Diberri's html2wiki - WebSite - DO NOT WORK- SERVER ERROR
This used to be the most decent HTML to MediaWiki converter but it is broken now.
DO NOT WORK:
Microsoft Office Word Add-in For MediaWiki - DO NOT WORK
On Office 2010 it gives you an error when you try to save as "MediaWiki .txt"
Word2MediaWikiPlus - DO NOT WORK
It is an office Macro. Do not work on Office 2010 or 2013 on 64bits.
Odt2Wiki - DO NOT WORK
Using Apache OpenOffice 4.0.1 does not work with it.
Convert2MediaWiki - DO NOT WORK
Using Apache OpenOffice 4.0.1 does not work with it. It generates an empty file.
Sun Wiki Publisher - DO NOT WORK
Also tested on OpenOffice 4.0.1. It generates en empty file.
At end then I started to use Pandoc command line tool to convert some HTML to MediaWiki.
"pandoc -f html -t mediawiki convert.html >out.txt"
But I will keep looking for something more friendly with GUI.
