Page Break Block

Last updated last month

The page break block lets you add pagination to a page or post. This feature can be useful if you are writing a step by step tutorial.

To add a pagination, click on the Add Block button and select the Page Break block. Alternatively, you can start typing /pagebreak in a new paragraph block, then press enter.

Use the slash command /pagebreak to insert a page break block

Block Interface

Every block has its own block-specific controls that allow you to manipulate the block directly in the editor. The page break block is pretty straightforward so it only has the more options control.

You can add as many page breaks as you want. Each page break block adds a new number to the multi-page link that appears at the bottom of the page and enables you to split the content into more pages.
