    Am I missing an obvious way to export to HTML?

    I wrote up a -ton- of content, and now I'm looking for an efficient way to get it into Wordpress. So far all I've figured out is exporting to RTF and adding HTML tags manually. Not fun.

    There currently is no direct way to export to HTML, sorry.
    As far as Wordpress goes, though: How did you write up the content in the first place? Did you use Markdown or any similar pseudo markup?

    I did write it in Ulysses in a simple pseudo-markdown (just created my own tags). Unfortunately the only markdown plugin I've found for Wordpress, doesn't seem to work for me.

    I'm surprised at the lack of HTML support - I thought this app was targeting Bloggers (in addition to writers). Swapping my tags for H1-H4, adding some temp links (#), and adding some P tags around my paragraphs is about all I'd really need.

    I didn't mean for that to sound demeaning btw - I'm only surprised because the app has done everything else I've wanted thus far. (:

    It's anti-distraction environment saved me an enormous amount of time in the last two weeks writing all this content, but now I sorta feel like I'm losing the time again converting by hand.

    We are working on an HTML exporter - rest assured of that.

    The problem we always had with it was the complexity of the environment where HTML is used. In your casde you embed it into a blogging system, in others it should be a subpage of something or even make up a whole site.

    My current plan is to finally have a HTML export for version 2.2. We'll see how this works out and how many development ressources we can allocate to it.

    I can't speak for your entire audience obviously, but personally I'd be happy associating HTML tags (a before/after <h1>, </h1>) with my custom paragraph marks and inline marks (ex. <strong>, </strong), and a generic tag (<p></p>) for non-specified blocks. I feel like that would work for many bloggers and web-writers.

    I'm a huge CSS hound myself, so sticking to basic HTML still gives me a lot of control. I think a lot of people would agree.

    I've added your feedback to our html idea thread in the bug tracker. Be sure that we'll take it into account when designing the exporter!

    There was a couple of threads on this on the old boards.

    http://forum.blue-tec.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=210 has lots of work rounds.

    http://forum.blue-tec.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=739 has user Rachel working on an xhtml exporter, which seemingly then vanished.
