It’s been a quite longer time that we are getting regular inquiries over the question that how one can divide the big, long WordPress posts into multiple pages. So, today to help all you guys, I came up at the point, where I felt that let’s do it. In this article, I will show you how simply and without the use of any plugin you can achieve your aim of dividing your WordPress posts into multiple pages.

Step 1: <!––nextpage––> tag

It is as simple as one can think of. In most of the perfectly coded themes, all you have to do is copy the code <!––nextpage––> and paste it in the place where you want the next page to start. Don’t worry for pagination as it will automatically show up. Also, for a quick note here that you put up the code in the Text view and not in Visual view in your post editor.

Step 2: If Step 1 Doesn’t Works

If in case, the step 1 does not work for you, then just copy and paste the following code in your theme’s single.php file:

<?php wp_link_pages(); ?>

Once you added this, the pagination will start to show up while you can add as many as parameters to it, totally as per your requirement.
