Comment: Migration of unmigrated content due to installation of a new plugin

...

  1. Click on Tools > Edit in Word (top, right of the page)
  2. The first time you do this, you are warned "A plugin is required to use this feature. Would you like to download it?". Click "Yes".
  3. You will then probably be warned "Firefox prevented this site (wiki.ucl.ac.uk) from asking you to install software on your computer". This is a security warning and may be overriden by clicking the "Edit Options" button and then allowing wiki.ucl.ac.uk to install the add-on. You then need to click the "W" again to download the WebDAV Launcher extension.
  4. Click "Install Now" and then "Restart Firefox" to complete the installation.

How to edit you your pages in Word:

After the plugin is installed, simply clicking Tools > Edit in Word will cause Microsoft Word to be launched. You have to enter your UCL userid and password so that the edited page can be written back. When you have finished editing, simply click "Save" to save the new version back to the wiki server. You will need to refresh your web browser view to see the changes (click F5 or the refresh icon at the top of the browser).
