    I am doing a very long page with images and want to paginate it with “<!–nextpage–>”.
    When using sections, the pagination is ignored and all content is shown.

    It would be very convenient on the backend to have the sections according to the pagination.
    Is there a possibility to achieve that?

    Hmm, currently Sections aren’t built that way.

    Can you explain a bit more about how that would work?

    Hmmmm…. 🙂

    I insert quite often page breaks with <!–nextpage–>. If a topic gets very long or has many images, it makes readability besser and shortens loading time.
    Actually it is a very convenient feature of WP to edit on only one page and WP generates for each <!–nextpage–> the subpages automatically.

    Right now with GP I can’t use both – sections and WP pagination.And i wonder why?

    It would very convenient and cool, if I could do on the backend something like that

    Section A
    Content A
    <!–nextpage–>

    Section B
    Content B
    <!–nextpage–>

    Section C
    Content C
    <!–nextpage–>

    etc.
    etc.

    This way I could structure the backend with Sections according to the <!–nextpage–>.

    Right now I started a page with around 15 page-breaks – so probably you can imagine, how much searching and scrolling it means, until it is last revision. I am used to that – no prob.

    But it would add a lot of convenience, if Sections would allow the <!–nextpage–> functionality and not break it.

    Interesting idea, thank you!

    Right now, Sections development is kind of on hold until we can get a grasp on the new Gutenberg editor – if it merges into core, Sections will be completely re-written.
