#14375 reopened feature request

Post pagination should have a show all option

When people use the nextpage html comment tag to paginate posts we should also have a show all link displayed to make it easier for people to read the whole content without pagination.

Some people may be using nextpage to increase page impressions. They won’t be exuberant with joy if we introduce something like that by default. :-D

Closing as maybelater. Complete lack of interest on the feature on the ticket over the last 5 years, and comment:1 is also a consideration. Feel free to reopen when more interest re-emerges (particularly if there's a patch).

Just popping in to add a note that Google is pushing more and more that the "View All" should be a default option for paginated content.

Google actually published a detailed review on the Canonical Tag and Common Mistakes back in 2013 here:

Here's the appropriate statement:

"In cases of paginated content, we recommend either a rel=canonical from component pages to a single-page version of the article, or to use rel=”prev” and rel=”next” pagination markup."

I'm sure all of you have been aware of the RELENTLESS Phantom and Quality Updates that Google has pushed out over the last couple of years (including the 5+ updates tracked this year alone). This is a clear trend by Google to remind site owners to "think of the user" first.

It makes sense that at least having the ability to provide the user with a "View All" option to stop needless pagination would be something they would greatly reward. This would especially be true on Mobile when it will be easier for the user to scroll down as opposed to continually reloading multiple page partitions.

I'd love for this to be something that WordPress supported.

I'm marking it as Future Release pending patches and agreement.
