[resolved] Is it possible to use a 'Next Page' attribute in Posts? (3 posts)

    With my current knowledge on WordPress, it would appear i'm asking too much of a blogging website, as I'm fully aware it is not a CMS and doesn't use 'pages'.

    However, I'm wondering if it is possible to split a post into essentially 2 posts, at the bottom of one, having a 'next page' link to go to the rest of it like they do on many websites.

    I can't think of any possible way to do this atm, as a post is a post and NOT a page, it's completely dynamic.

    I don't really want a mile long page on my website on one part of a huge topic, it looks silly and unprofessional.

    I don't have time at the moment to start changing my theme to allow for a full width template - There seems to be a lack of themes which are. My content is kind of squashed up on one page which makes it very long.

    I may have to leave wordpress and use a CMS, not what I want to do :(
    Thanks for your help!

    <!--nextpage--> works fine in posts:

    i am not sure at the moment, if you would need to add this in the html mode, but there is a plugin to add this button to the editor:

    wow, I didn't think it would be that easy!
    Thanks for your help, plugin installed and works like a charm.

    They should re-put it back into the post editor.
