    hi, just singed up to use WP, I want to post a long article (10 pages), is there a way to automatically break up the 10 page article, from 1 long page into 10 smaller pages with automatic links to the next page?

    also, how can I enable a snippet of the article to show up on the home page with a link to read more? I posted the article, and the entire article is on the home page, its too long so it would be nice to have an excerpt or a snippet of it only, on the home page.

    thanks!

    for pages use ‘<!–nextpage–>’ where you want the breaks

    to have a shorter amount show up on the front page either use the more tag after the amount you want shown <!–more–> or change the call on the index page from the_content to the_excerpt
