    I have this working great for paginating category pages, the main index.php page great...however is there a way to use this to paginate long posts into several "pages" ? If so what do I put into single.php ? I tried using:

    <?php wp_link_pages('before=<p class="postpage-paginate">Pages: &after=</p>&next_or_number=number&pagelink= %'); //display next and previous links for long posts/pages?>

    but it didn't work.

    imagebox,
    did you find a solution to this? I am wanting to do the same thing - paginate long posts. Does wp paginate work for this?

    No it didn't end up working. You may want to check out - http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-split-wordpress-posts-into-multiple-pages/

    The only issue with this method is that it is not going to automatically paginate after a set number of words. The editor needs to have <!––nextpage––> added where you want the page to stop

    I'm not having the desired results from this method. The next page tag stops the content flow in Firefox, but doesn't display pagination. The tag doesn't even stop the content flow in Safari.
