Hi, Everyone.
I found a script originally posted on German Scribus User Forum written by German Developer Julius that allow you automatically create and link text frame to next pages easily. This script is based on German so I translated and localised to English for those can't understand German language (I'm a developer from China however I can understand a bit of German I think it would be nice to have it localised in English so I did that with the help of Google Translator).

To run this script you must opened a document and had a text frame selected,you also need to make sure that there are more pages than currently you had. Then execute this script it asks you to which page you want to create text frames on them then will it to be linked with each other. After that all to be done.

This script is written in Python 2 and could be used for Scribus 1.4.x also Scribus 1.5.x before 1.5.6. Also noticed that Since Scribus 1.5.7 you might do that in a better way by using Multiple Duplicate > By Page. It would not need to create more pages before creating and linking text frames to next pages and you just selected your desired text frame then duplicate it to make your work done a breeze.

If you have any questions or find grammatical error in this script please post your feedback below.
