How To Divide Your WordPress Posts Into Multiple Pages


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.

How To Create Great Video Tutorials For A WordPress Blog


Tutorials are an excellent form of video content that are both informative and useful. Of course if you want to publish tutorials on your WordPress blog then you’re going to have to create them first – which can be a bit of a challenge in its own right.

To get started on the right foot, here is what you should do to create great tutorials:

Start with a set of instructions

The backbone of every good tutorial is a clear set of instructions. Make sure you outline each step in such a way that it can be followed by someone with no experience whatsoever.

Decide how to ‘show’ how each step performed

Essentially your video tutorial should show how the actions in each step can be performed. In some cases that will mean that you will want to record yourself performing the actions using a digital camera, but in others you may find that you will need to use screen capture or some other method to do so.

Script the voiceover narration

Typically video tutorials are accompanied by a voiceover narration – and you will want to script yours out in advance so that it is clear and uninterrupted. Keep in mind that the timing of the voiceover narration should coincide with the actions in the video itself.

Record more than one take if necessary

Once you do start recording the footage for your tutorial, be sure to record more than one take if necessary. Later when you are editing and compiling the tutorial you can discard what you don’t need, but as a rule of thumb it is always best to have extra footage in case you need it.

If you do decide to create a video tutorial by recording your screen you should give Movavi Screen Capture Studio a try. It is a complete training video software that will let you record as well as edit videos quickly and effectively.

In short you will have everything necessary to create video tutorials. When it comes to recording the tutorial Movavi Screen Capture Studio will let you dictate the parameters such as the region that you want to capture, audio source, framerate, and so on. After that its other features will let you cut and combine video segments, apply special effects, enhance the video quality, add voiceover narrations, and much more.

Although you may not be experienced creating or editing videos, Movavi Screen Capture Studio will make it all seem like a piece of cake due to its intuitive approach. Just try it out and you’ll soon see how simple it is to create video tutorials for your WordPress blog.

#6 Show Adsense Only to Search Engine Visitors

As we all know that regular visitors don’t click on ads, around 90% folks who click on ads are coming from search engines.

Also for fact that Google pays more if your click-through rate (CTR) is higher, Google’s “smart pricing.” Being smart priced means that your click-through rate (CTR) is low and the money you earn per click is divided by between 2 and 10. For example, if a click would normally earn you $1.00, with smart pricing it could earn you as little as $0.10. Painful, isn’t it? Happily, this solution displays your AdSense ads to search engine visitors only, which means more clicks and a higher CTR.
