Pagination (Node) allows the main content of arbitrary node types (Page, Story, etc...) to be paginated according to one of three methods:
Method 1: Content is paginated by a selectable "words per page" count.
Method 2: Content is paginated by manual breaks, inserted by the content creator.
Method 3: Content is paginated by manual breaks, based on <h3> tags.
Method 1 allows for quick and easy pagination, and is ideal for users who are looking to have their longer content split into multiple pages with the least amount of hassle. Just select the "words per page" threshold for a particular content type, and all existing and future nodes of that type will be automatically paginated accordingly.
Methods 2 and 3 allow for fine-tuned control over pagination breaks, useful for content creators who need to set specific break points in their content. Method 2 paginates content based on the presence of break tags ([pagebreak] or [ header = SOME TITLE ]), whereas Method 3 paginates based on <h3> elements.
note: To use Method 3 pagination, make sure <h3> tags are allowed under your Input Filters.
