How to copy and paste text into the CMS


Copying text from one location and pasting it into the CMS can be very helpful. If your moving a site from the old system to the new, or if you like to type all of your content into a program like Microsoft Word before putting it in the CMS, copying and pasting as plain text will save you from having to retype all of your content due to other code and formatting from your source document. If you copy and paste directly from a program like word you could end up copying and pasting formatting that will ruin the look of your site. Here's how to correctly copy and paste text into the CMS.


Copy and paste text from any source into the CMS


  • Highlight the text that you want to copy and either right click and select Copy or hit the Control/Command and C keys on your keyboard.
  • Before pasting text into the text editor of the CMS, make sure you paste it as text only.
    • Click Edit, Paste as text to ensure other formatting isn't copied into your page
