Hi Everyone, while we wait on the data-center to do what they need to do with the primary BC server, and I wait to get started doing what I need to do, I have begun work on the VERY EARLY stages of a new project. As the title of this blog says, you may now upload Microsoft Word Open Document Format files (.docxNOT .doc).
This is VERY EARLYalpha stage development, which means it won’t always grab your lists, tables, headings, italics, etc, and Images.
While we do plan to support those features as time goes on, at the moment, we just wanted to get the basic stuff working.
It’s done the same as if you were uploading a TXT file, or a HTML file for our site. If you have not already done so, please register for an account. Once you’ve logged in, click on Account Information and choose Add Story. The form presented there will allow you to submit your story. Just look for section labeled “ ” and click the “Browse” button, and then find your document on your HDD.
For those of you that love to read your stories offline on your .ePub compatible eBook reader (iPad, iPhone, Android, B&N Nook, Sony eReader, etc) you can now download .ePub versions of any of the stories currently posted @ TGFiction.Net thanks to a new modules we installed called ePubVersion. ePubVersion is a great little module that creates an .ePub book from either a single chapter, or all available chapters of a story and gives you a file named “Story_Title_[x”].epub” (for single chapters, x=the chapter number, for multiple chapters, x = the range of chapters available. This initial v0.7 release of the module does not currently support images, but the next version should support an option of downloading with or without images!
To use this new feature, just visit any available story, and click on “Story” or “Chapter” next to the “ePub” icon right under the “DisplayWord” icon in the top left corner of the page.
Please let us know your thoughts and feelings about this module, and let us know of any other features you would like us to add!
