OK, here is my situation: I made a knowledge base for a company, they have about 500 word documents with screenshots in them explaining procedures and such. I can easily paste the text into the cms wysiwyg editor on the knowledge base but the images need to be uploaded one at a time, then sized and placed in the article.

Question: Is there any suggestions for an automatic method to to convert the documents to html with the appropriate image tags and links to the images in them, and export/package the images for ftp upload? I can already convert them to HTML automatically using a batch file and a program, but converting the images to the correct tags with href link, then exporting them for ftp is where i need some help.

Might not even be possible, but if anyone has tried to do something like this I would like to here how you approached this.

Some CMS editors have the ability to accept pasted images and auto-add those as linked resources (atlassian's confluence editor for one)... Can you tell us which CMS you are using? – BrianAdkins Jun 12 '14 at 4:06
I am using KBpublisher, the editor is CKEditor. I was looking at Confluence, it looks very nice, but we already paid for KBpublisher and set it up. I think I am going to try porting them over using Powershell script. – dylpickle Jun 16 '14 at 21:42

I think that using this Powershell script would be the best way, but you might need some editing. Give it a shot, and tell me what you've got.
