    How can we get the nextpage quicktag to work in 2.8? The old instructions are no longer working.

    The <!--nextpage--> tag is working fine for me in two local copies of 2.8. What's the problem exactly?

    @Esmi: Nextpage/more tags do work fine within a 2.8.n site but do not work at all on the front page of a static site due to the way the wp_link_pages() function is written.

    I've posted a crude workaround for one part of this problem - which only handles the nextpage tag - at http://wordpress.org/support/topic/313281?replies=1 and am currently rewriting that code as a plugin with filters that should be a] more generically useful and b] handles the more tag and c] applicable for non standard themes.

    If an out of the box 2.8.n installation with nextpage or more don't work on a static page that's not on the front of the site, or in a post, then there's something else wrong with the site config or the theme. Most often in my experience either permalink structure is messed up, or the siteurl and related site info are wrong; quite common when a blog has been moved from another site.

    Hope this helps.
