    What did you do that didn't work? A common mistake is to put spaces inside the next page tag. Make sure you haven't any spaces in it. Jul 29, 2016 at 17:57

You have to add <!--nextpage--> in Text mode of editor. If you add it through Visual editor - WP will escape it to HTML:


and display it literally (instead of pagination):


So, check your post by switching to Text editor. If nothing isn't displayed at all when you view the post, this may be a plugin issue. Update your theme to the latest version and disable all plugins temporarily.

  • Besides it is possible to show some same text on all naviaged pages for example i have post title, content, then A, B, C, D etc. I want to show post title and content on all the pages and a,b,c,d on different navigated pages. It is possible?
