Pagination dropdown (8 posts)

    I write long reviews, but rather than spew out 5000 words without a break, I want to break the reviews into logical sections.

    I'm aware of the multipage tag which works great, but I want something more user friendly, specifically the type of menu pagination seen here: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sonynex7/

    Can anyone offer any advice on how best to achieve this?

    Did you try the <!--nextpage--> tag. It provides the pagination (in default themes at least).

    Sorry - I meant to say nextpage tag. That works well enough for me, but it's specifically the menu functionality I'm looking for.

    I never saw the solution how to create titles for sections. <!--nextpage--> uses the wp_link_pages function. There is no parameters for titles except numbers. I would suggest to use the series of posts for this task. It's possible to unite them by custom fields and, if post has custom field with specific key, query post list with the same key into sidebar or dropdown submenu. As well it's possible to use custom taxonomy, or ordinary taxonomy like tags for this task. Of course, this method requires some additional programming of the theme.
    It also possible to use child pages, but it depends also.
    Right now I can't remember easier way to make this. Perhaps in the next morning )
    May be somebody here has another ideas )

    Howdy! Have you seen the plugin number my post pages? It provides a dropdown in addition to pagination.

    That plugin is good, but not quite there. This one however works a treat: http://www.tarkan.info/20080530/tutorials/wordpress-plugin-multipage-toolkit-26

    It did require a single line of code removing to stop it breaking permalinks. But it's exactly what I wanted.

    Thanks for your help though. :)
