How to paginate individual posts (4 posts)

    Hi, I'd like to know how I can paginate a single post. If the user clicks into a single post, I want to allow them click on Next Page, Next Page, etc to read everything within just that one post. So on a long post, they will not have to scroll down too far. I searched around and and found some similar solutions but still do not have a concrete answer. All of the plugins I found regarding pagination were for paginating the lists of post and not paginate within a post. Perhaps I'm not looking hard enough, I will continue. In the mean time, any help here would be terrific and greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    No need for plugins, as far as I know.
    Just make sure you have this template tag in your single.php:

    Should I expect to see a button to insert this quicktag? I don't see it in the TinyMCE editor. According to this article, it seems like I should see a button there to insert this tag.

    I also found this, says this function has bee deprecated?

    Thanks for all the help.

    Nope, no button. That documentation is from a prior incarnation of the editor. Just switch to code view and type it.

    Use the link moshu gave you, not the deprecated one.
