Separate nodes into pages with paging module

The paging module gives you the ability to separate the text within the node body field into pages using the <!--pagebreak--> tag within the text.

To install this module just go to Administer >> Site building >> Modules and enable the module.


The first thing we have to do is enable the paging filter on an input format. Go to Site configuration >> Input formats. In this example, click on configure for the Filtered HTML.


When you are in the settings page scroll down to the Filters field set and tick the Paging checkbox.


The final thing we have to do is go to Site configuration >> Paging and select which node type you want the paging tag to be enabled on, in this example I’ll tick the Page checkbox.


Now it’s time to test it out, go to Create content >> Page and create a page node and then add <!--pagebreak--> between the text.


Now check out your node page, you should see a pager at the bottom before the comments.


There you go now we have a way of separating a node into separate pages. If you have any questions just leave a comment.
