Where do I set the plugin’s options

The plugin’s options are added to the built-in Reading settings page in WordPress.

Can I disable the plugin’s functionality for specific posts, pages, or custom post type objects?

Yes, the plugin adds a metabox to individual items in supported post types that allows the autopaging to be disabled on a per-post basis.

How can I add support for my custom post type?

Navigate to Settings > Reading in WP Admin to enable this plugin for your custom post type.

You can also use the filter autopaging_post_types to add support by appending your post type’s name to the array.

What filters does this plugin include?
  • autopaging_post_types – modify the post types supported by this plugin. Will override the values set under Settings > Reading.
  • autopaging_num_pages_default – modify the default number of pages over which a post is displayed. Will override the value set under Settings > Reading.
  • autopaging_max_num_pages – override the maximum number of pages available in the settings page dropdown when the paging type is “pages”.
  • autopaging_max_num_words – override the minimum number of words allowed per page page when the paging type is “words”.
  • autopaging_num_pages – change the number of pages content is displayed on at runtime. Filter provides access to the full post object in addition to the number of pages.

Reviews

Great plugin, minor problem

Overall great plugin, simple and effective. 4 stars only because I encounter a minor problem: namely, that it breaks blockquotes into different pages. This would be fine, except that the next page does not show that it is a continuation of a blockquote and the text is as if from normal paragraph. Probably a small bug that could be resolved in the future updates.

Thanks for the plugin!
