Post Pagination using a [nextpage] shortcode

Description

Currently, you have to use the <!--nextpage--> html tag to paginate blog posts. This isn't very user friendly and should be changed to a shortcode instead.

We could just deprecate the html tag, since people know shortcodes better (e.g. from [gallery]).

  • Keywords close added

<!--nextpage--> has the advantage that it degrades better, i.e. it's invisible by default.

We also have <!--more-->.

There is so much content already written using these tags that I see little benefit in deprecating them and adding shortcodes.

Agreed with scribu. This is better as a TinyMCE button anyway if you want to really be doing page breaks.
