I have several top-tier pages on different topics (References, Quotations, etc). Each has a tab on the main menu that opens directly to the page. I want to have each page act as the first page of a linked set of related pages. It doesn't have to be fancy - it can just have a link "Next Page ->" on the bottom of the first page, "<- Prev Page" on the bottom left of the last page, and both at the bottom of all intervening pages. What I don't want to do is to modify the basic page template (page.php?) and find all three paged topics in one sequence. I can easily hand-code the links in each page, but that requires constant maintenance.
What I want to know is if I can clone off three separate copies of the default page template, one for each category, and then implement your Next/Previous Page Link Plus in each different page template, and have each implementation work only for that particular custom page template? Would any code changes be required in your own code?
Any code examples of such a solution would be appreciated.
