To view complete instructions read here

Open up page.php in your template folder (you may also set up a seperate a Page Template)

For the most basic setup, insert the following below the loop statement in the page.php file:

<?php if( function_exists(page2cat_pages)){ page2cat_pages($post->ID);} ?>

I recommend you wrap the function in your standard post class. For example:

<div class="post">
<?php if( function_exists(page2cat_pages)){ page2cat_pages($post->ID);} ?>

Plugin Options

<?php if( function_exists(page2cat_pages)){ page2cat_pages($post->ID, posts per page, number of pages);} ?><br /><br />

Posts per page: (default = 10) set to 0 to show all
This sets the number of posts to show at one time on the page.

Number of pages: (default = 15) set to 0 to show all
This tells how many page numbers to show at a time on the page navigation bar.

Example of Category Page Extender with variables:

<?php if( function_exists(page2cat_pages)){ page2cat_pages($post->ID, 5, 10);} ?>

This will list 5 posts and up to 10 page numbers at a time on the page navigation bar.
