Very confused about inserting Page Breaks in 3.4.1 (4 posts)

    Hello,

    I'm slowly learning the basics of HTML and CSS, so keep that in mind, please. It used to be that there was a button to insert a PAGE BREAK into a post that would then present as a link that read "MORE" that you could click on to be taken to the entirety of the post. That doesn't exist any more and I am thoroughly confused as to how to make that happen.

    When I enter "<!--nextpage-->", everything after the tag just disappears, without any indication of how to link the rest of the post to a new page.

    How do I do this?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    make sure to have some code with wp_link_pages() after the_content() in page.php and single.php of your theme

    this plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextpage-buttons/ will bring the button back

    Hello, thank you for your response. It's the adding the code part that I'm a bit confused on. The plug-in, of course, does not work without altering the .php in the template.

    I use the Writer Child template, which I wold LOVE to edit parts of. I have extremely basic knowledge and a book to consult to do this. When I got to EDITOR, the CSS stylesheet looks like this:

    writer child

    It says that changes should be made to the PARENT template, which looks like this:
    writer parent

    It's rather intimidating to see "DO NOT CHANGE" in the stylesheet, so I'm confused about which stylesheet I can actually change and add wp_link_pages() after the_content() in page.php and single.php to. As I said, I'm a complete novice.

    you would need to edit the Page Template page.php and the Single Post single.php

    as you are working with a commercial theme, please contact the theme's seller for support.
