Chalk this one up to “you learn something new every day!”
I was re-designing a customer’s website today (and moving from static HTML to WordPress) when I came across a set of really LONG pages all about the person’s life story, kind of a biography, if you will.
It was basically “bio1,” “bio2,” “bio3,” etc.
I tried breaking them up into multiple blog posts, looking for that elusive “quality content” that we’re always seeking, but I always arrived at the conclusion that the way it was written way back when was actually very good and why mess with it?
So the question became, “How do I “paginate” a single WordPress blog post into multiple “pages?”
Thanks to Google, it was easy peasy.
Wherever you want to place a “page break,” you insert (in the html, or text, view) this tag:
WordPress breaks up the page in a very logical manner and just calls them “Page 1,” “Page 2,” and “Page 3″ and so on.
Nice, neat, elegant design. And it works perfect when it makes sense to write a really long blog post.
