There's too much text to scroll through. Need page Buttons (5 posts)

    There are a few articles I've posted on my site that are just too big. They leave the user scrolling through a field of text which seemingly has no end in site. I would like to make it so that when a post reaches a certain amount of lines it creates a page numbering system for that post.

    Is this a built in wordpress feature or is there a plug-in made for this? I'd hate to have to fumble through my php books to figure out how to make this work from scratch.

    Here's an example of one of the artciles.

    Well, there's the <!--nextpage--> tag that's built-in, not all theme's are aware of it though. You can read more on it here: [[Styling_Page-Links]]

    It doesn't do it automatically for you, but adding the tag isn't too rough. There may be some plugins to automate that -- I don't know of any of the top of my head, but it'd be worth searching. (using nextpage in your search terms will help I bet).

    does the <!--nextpage--> tag send you to the next post? If that's the case it wouldn't work for what I want to do. I want the post to be cut off and continued as the same post but split up into more than one page.

    No.

    It paginates a post.

    awesome! I'll try it out.

    edit:
    It worked! I'll figure out how to make it automatic later. Consider this issue resolved.
