Best Practices for Using the Gutenberg Page Break Block

Use page breaks sparingly: While page breaks can improve the user experience for long articles, it’s important not to overuse them. Reserve them for content that genuinely benefits from being split into multiple pages, such as tutorials or lengthy guides.

Consider your audience: Take into account the preferences and habits of your target audience. If your readers are more likely to skim through shorter articles, using page breaks may not be necessary.

Provide clear navigation: Whenever you split a post into multiple pages, ensure that your readers can easily navigate between them. Use clear and intuitive page navigation elements to guide them through the content.
