What I hate about Fan Fiction sites

I wish I could just paste the whole chapter from my documents (I use .odts OpenOffice for the win) onto the site, but I can't. I feel like I rewriting the story, over, and over, and over.

There has got to be a way of of just pasting the thing on there without having to fiddle with anything. *huffs; tried multiple Zelda sites to put fiction at*

It's hard enough putting it up on my own website. >_<

What about saving it as a MS Word DOC or exporting to PDF?  Assuming your talking about just uploading a file that is. :erm:

The tediousness of paperwork makes my eyes burn and head hurt. Yet it is a necessary evil we all share. I like swords. Swords are simple. They aren't confusing or evil. Just straight forward implements of death. Have a nice day. ~GW

No, I'm not. Uploading doesn't work. It's the formatting that changes. There's a Zelda forum where I post it, but I can't use the same BBcode because it's a different type of forum.

Then there are the editors to type in your story. *UGH* It's not that easy to get a story around. MS Doc will NOT work. You get extra spaces inbetween. The only thing you can do with out problems is completely unformat the text and then go back and look for italics and bolds, and increase in font sizes.

It's a pain in the rear that shouldn't be needed.

Edit: Fan Fiction.net allows you to upload .odts! Nice... but I want my fonts. >.>

I see the problem (and know the frustration all too well). I run into a lot of that when I do web updates at work, and it makes a huge mess of the HTML if I were to copy and paste from Word to Frontpage. Frontpage sucks I know, but it's the ONLY HTML editor I can use at work outside of Notepad (dispite my agressive lobbying for Dreamweaver). :erm:
 
I don't remember if it can off hand, but check to see if OpenOffice can export a document of your's to HTML and see how well it does it. If it does a good enough job you may be able to save yourself some editing at least.
