This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



Provides support for splitting up long posts into sections. Set the maximum length you want to display of your posts.
The plugin provides xhtml Transitional compliant code with back and next navigation to scroll through your posts. It uses jQuery in no conflict mode to provide ajax functionality to speed up page load times. Non-javascript browsers or even those that dont support jQuery will load post sections through normal wordpress mechanism.
