How to submit blog entries in Persian

by msabaye

Can anyone help me with how to submit blog entries in Persian? I run into a great deal of problems with margins and all sorts of symbols that appear on my entry when I make an entry in Persian. I appreciate your help.

Then simply cut/copy and paste.

Good Luck

This may sound a bit technical but it really is not.

Cut and paste from word document should work provided the document is initially encoded with UTF-8 (Unicode standard) encoding system. This should also work with Persian-English mix if the text is Persian with few English words inside. If it is English text with few Persian words, it will be all mixed-up on this site because once a single Persian character is detected, the whole text is set to 'right to left' directionality which messes up everything. Persian text with few English words shouldn't be a problem. Use 'help' of your Word program to see how to set the encoding to UTF-8.

Thanks a lot. I have not heard of zamaneh. I use WORD, and I end up with very disorderly and ugly looking text.

Thanks for your reply.

 That is exactly what I do: cut and paste from a WORD document, but it appears with all the wrong margins and many symbols.

I use Zamaneh Editor, it works well when not mixed with English

Dear msabaye, I don't know what software you use for Persian.  I use Zamaneh Editor myself.  I type in Farsi using this editor and then I cut and paste all this in the body where I want to submit my blog.  It usually works well unless I try to mix Persian and English which in that case, there will be some problems.  However, for pure Persian input, zamaneh Editor works well.

-- Type your Persian blog directly in the blog input page, or
-- Write your blog in a Word document and then copy and paste in your blog, or
-- If you copy your text from another web page or blog, you need to correct the line breaks before posting in on your blog.
