How split a long article into multiple linked pages in Joomla!

Short, linked pages are often easier to read and navigate than a single, long article and Joomla! makes it easy to split a long article into smaller chunks of content. You can even insert a table of contents into the article.

Log in to your Joomla! administrator back-end and go to Content > Articles. If you’re editing an existing article, click the article title. If you’re creating a new article, click +New.

Inserting a page break

Insert your cursor where you want to end the first page of content and click Page Break.

In the Page Break dialog box, enter a Page Title which will be a subtitle for the page. If you leave this field blank, the article title will be used. In Table of Contents Alias, enter a short name that will be displayed in the article’s table of contents. If you leave this field blank, Page # will be displayed in the table of contents. Click Insert Page Break.

The location of the page break is marked with a horizontal line in the article editor.

Repeat the page break procedure described above for each separate page you want to create. Below is an example of how a multiple page article looks like. Your pages will look different, depending on which template and styles you’re using on your site.

Changing or deleting a page break

You can’t move or change an existing page break. Instead, you’ll have to delete the page break and then create a new one. To delete a page break, delete the horizontal line that marks the page break in the article editor.
