Pages with custom names

  1. Is there a way to have custom page names, using the <!--nextpage--> tag? I mean to replace the default numbering 1,2,3,... with different descriptions of post "chapters": Intro, sub-topic 1, sub-topic 2, ...
    Blog address is extendedreality.wordpress.com
    No paginated post yet, so nothing to look at for the moment.

    The blog I need help with is extendedreality.wordpress.com.

  2. Can we slit content in posts using the <!--nextpage--> tag? The answer is yes. See the support docs for all methods of splitting content here.

    I am not clear about what you mean by changing of the default numbering though. If you wish to you can organize you blog like a book.

    I am not clear on what you mean by "pages with custom names". See > Pages and custom menu.

  3. Thanks for reply. I had the doubt my request was not clear enough, though.
    The usage of <!--nextpage--> was clear to me and I find it very useful, along with "read more" and the other ways to split contents, as you suggested.
    Plainly said: if you use the <!--nextpage--> tag you have a "Page: 1 2 ..." at the bottom of the post.
    But what if I want to have a "Page: Intro Topic1 Topic2 ..." instead of standard numbering? Is there a way to get it? This means, again, replacing numbers with custom descriptions of post pages.
    I'd apply this, if possible, to single posts, not the whole blog.

  4. But what if I want to have a "Page: Intro Topic1 Topic2 ..." instead of standard numbering? Is there a way to get it? This means, again, replacing numbers with custom descriptions of post pages.

    I don't believe that's possible on a free hosted WordPress.com blog. Staff will be able to provide a definitive answer so I'll flag this thread for their attention.

  5. P.S. I apologize, in advance, if I am wrong and it is possible to edit the page numbering.

  6. Unfortunately, this level of customization cannot be accomplished on a WordPress.com blog.

  7. @macmanx
    Thanks for the confirmation.

  8. Thanks for replies to all of you.
    I guess I will use some "href" trick in combination with pagination to achieve this result. More or less...
    Thanks again.
