I am going to post this calmly, but I cannot stress how disappointed I am that in all the years WordPress has been in development, they haven’t expanded this feature to be usable in more design configurations.
Pagination in numbers (1, 2, 3, 4) is fine for front pages and other areas, but in a post broken up over multiple pages, it tells you nothing.
Can we please, finally, be able to name each page?
With this simple change, we can then name every page break, we can make a table of content split up by every page. We can name the previous and next links. We can build proper navigation for multi-page posts that every other CMS can handle.
The end result, is that WordPress would finally be able to have a table of content, previous and next links, and they all be named properly. This makes writing things like reviews–which span over several pages–so much easier to list when each page should be broken up into titles like this, if I am on page 3:
< Features | Conclusion > - Into - Features - Test results - Conclusion
Thanks for reading.
