Is it possible to remove "nextpage" tag inside posts text depending of utm_campaign ?

Depending of where my visitors are comming from, I want to remove the


of my post.

I am using this

if($_GET['utm_campaign']== 'nonextpagecampaign') {

directly in my template in order to display or not things depending of the campaign name but for the nextpage tag, it's not that easy.


You can use the_post hook to remove <!--nextpage-->. In this case:

add_action( 'the_post', 'campaign_remove_nextpage', 99);

function campaign_remove_nextpage ( $post ) {
    if ( ($_GET['utm_campaign']== 'nonextpagecampaign') && (false !== strpos( $post->post_content, '<!--nextpage-->' )) ) 
        // Reset the global $pages:
        $GLOBALS['pages']     = [ $post->post_content ];

        // Reset the global $numpages:
        $GLOBALS['numpages']  = 0;

       // Reset the global $multipage:
        $GLOBALS['multipage'] = false;

We can use the content_paginationcodex filter to modify the paginated content without modifying the globals directly:

add_filter( 'content_pagination', function( $pages )
    // Target only the correct utm_campaign GET parameter 
    if( 'nonextpagecampaign' !== filter_input( INPUT_GET, 'utm_campaign', FILTER_SANITIZE_STRING ) )
        return $pages;

    // Remove the content pagination, only if it's already paginated
    if( count( $pages ) > 1 )
        $pages = [ join( '', $pages ) ];

    return $pages;
} );

where we return an array with the combined content when the correct utm_campaign GET paramter is detected. Hopefully you can adjust this further to your needs.
