There are a few articles I’ve posted on my site that are just too big. They leave the user scrolling through a field of text which seemingly has no end in site. I would like to make it so that when a post reaches a certain amount of lines it creates a page numbering system for that post.
Is this a built in wordpress feature or is there a plug-in made for this? I’d hate to have to fumble through my php books to figure out how to make this work from scratch.
Well, there’s the <!--nextpage--> tag that’s built-in, not all theme’s are aware of it though. You can read more on it here: [[Styling_Page-Links]]
It doesn’t do it automatically for you, but adding the tag isn’t too rough. There may be some plugins to automate that — I don’t know of any of the top of my head, but it’d be worth searching. (using nextpage in your search terms will help I bet).
does the <!–nextpage–> tag send you to the next post? If that’s the case it wouldn’t work for what I want to do. I want the post to be cut off and continued as the same post but split up into more than one page.
