Function Reference/wp link pages

Description

Displays page-links for paginated posts (i.e. includes the <!--nextpage--> Quicktag one or more times). This works in much the same way as link_pages() (deprecated), the difference being that arguments are given in query string format. This tag must be within The_Loop.

Usage

 <?php wp_link_pages$args ); ?> 

Default Usage

<?php $args = array(
	'before'           => '<p>' . __('Pages:'),
	'after'            => '</p>',
	'link_before'      => '',
	'link_after'       => '',
	'next_or_number'   => 'number',
	'nextpagelink'     => __('Next page'),
	'previouspagelink' => __('Previous page'),
	'pagelink'         => '%',
	'echo'             => 1
); ?>
