Templates are available to copy and paste HTML as a quick start to formatting your documents:
Click the following links to another browser window to view the template style.  The HTML code is pasted per each style at the end of this document.

Here are the steps to use the preformatted templates:

Open Another Browser Window, keep this window open. Be sure you are logged into the Community.
In this Window

    1. Select which Template style you would like
    2. Scroll down to find the HTML code
    3. Highlight all the HTML code for that template style
    4. Click <Ctrl+c> to copy
  1. In the second browser
    1. Go to the community you want to add your new document.
      Let’s say https://supportforums.cisco.com/community/netpro/network-infrastructure/routing
    2. Click on “create a document” on the actions widget in the right side.
    3. Select the “Write a New Document” in the window that shows by clicking in “Continue”. A WYSIWYG editor will open.
    4. Add the title to your document
    5. click on the HTML icon on the top right side of the WYSIWYG toolbar. This will display the html code for the template
    6. Click <Ctrl+ P> to paste the html code from this Help Document into the New document,
    7. Then, Click on the “show Full Editor” link on the top right of the WYSIWYG editor to get normal mode.
      You should be able to see the content framrework of the template style.
    8. Click save draft.

At this point you should be able to use populate the information from the template in the new document you’ve created.

Type over the Headings and the text area. The heading tags will automatically become the bullets in the Table of Content area.

NOTE:: Copy and Paste from MSWord will cause formatting and Publishing Issues.
Best to use the Editing Tools directly in the Wsyiwyg –Images must be manually inserted via upload image icon.
Or, Paste your MS Word Doc into text editor like Notepad in Windows (under accessories). This will strip out MS generated HTML.

You don’t need to use all the sections from the template.


Make sure to tag your document with keywords and keyphrases properly so that it’s easier to find.
