    I'm about to launch a hardware related portal (powered by Wordpress) and there will be some reviews in the site so I'm looking for a plugin to make this:


    Take note of the drop down menu at the start and bottom of the post. Also the "Prev" and "Next" buttons at bottom.

    I'm completely new to Wordpress to that why I'm asking here :)

    Thank you,

    There is a built in "hidden" (or less common...) tag that allow you to split a post in multiple pages.

    When you write a post simply add

    whenever you want to split the text over a new page.

    WordPress will automatically create the pagination for you at the bottom of the post.

    Important: Make sure to enter the code above without using the wysiwyg editor or it will not work ;)

    If you want to replicate the look of the site that you posted, you will need a plugin as the core functionality will not create the drop down menu.

    If you do a search for "wordpres multi page post" you should get quite a few plugins to do what you are after.

    Miko care to elaborate? Have used the page break from the editor and it appears to work, i.e adds a more link to take you to the rest of the article (mine are only a few hundred words long ergo not over more than two pages). Not exactly ad expert on Wordpress so may be missing what you are point out.

    The next page link splits the post over multiple pages.

    It will add pagination to a single post.

    Give it a go in a test post :)
