I want to make one long post, but have it paginate. I read that you could add this: <!--nextpage-->, but all it did was hide the content under the tag. Is there a plugin that helps do this? Is it possible that my theme may not allow this?

There is an easier way, you can just install a plugin. You might find this video useful. youtube.com/watch?v=F3oFZOA9stE – user77155 Aug 2 '15 at 11:06

Your theme must have support for the <!--nextpage--> tag.

You will need to add <?php wp_link_pages(); ?> in your post loop.

Thank you for your answer. I added the code in my theme's post loop, do I need to add it anywhere else? – Keith Groben May 17 '11 at 22:53
No, as long as it's present on your single template. – kaiser May 17 '11 at 23:02
Thanks. I guess my template blocks it since pages aren't showing up. Thanks for your answer though. – Keith Groben May 17 '11 at 23:10
