Apologies in advance for the long message but I am very new to Drupal and really have no idea what I'm doing sowill try to explain. My company has there website built in Drupal 7, we have a module installed which allows us to create single page blogs. What we'd like to be able to do is also create blog posts that can be split over multiple pages (if we choose).
As an example, if the user clicked on a particular blog post from our blog page they would be taken to the first page (as they currently do), then, at some point on the page we would like to have a next button which takes them to the second part of the blog post. Then on page 2 they would have the 'previous'/'next' buttons and so on.
I have tried installing a module called Smart Paging which looked like it would do the job, however I cannot for the life of me get it to work. Here is a breakdown of what I have done:
- I've installed the module
- Enabled it
- Selected the 'Default page break method' as 'manual'
- Amended the 'text formats' so 'Convert line breaks into HTML (i.e. < br > and < p >) for Smart Paging compatibility' is ticked
- Unticked 'Convert line breaks into HTML (i.e. < br > and < p >)'
- Added '' to the 'Limit allowed HTML tags' list
- Move 'Smart Paging' up underneath 'Body' on Administration » Structure » Content types » Blog entry
- Changed the format setting to 'Show Smart Paging settings during content editing of this content type'
- Added '< !--pagebreak-- >' to a blog post
I have done all of the above but the blog post still just shows the text that I have written all on one page with no 'next'/'previous' buttons. I'm hoping I've just missed something simple which someone could kindly point out to me.
Thanks in advance.
