How to split long Posts and Pages

In this podcast I will show you how to use the MORE and NEXTPAGE features in WordPress.

These are built-in tags that will make your posts look their best: MORE can break your post off on the front page, so instead of the entire post being displayed you can choose where WordPress inserts a “read more” message.

NEXTPAGE is a related feature that works on single posts and pages by inserting a virtual “break point” so that your long posts (or pages) are split into multiple parts.

Download the Nextpage Buttons plugin I’m talking about in this screencast here.

As always, enjoy!
