ne pas aimer vs ne aimer pas?

In the notes above, it says:

"You can also use ne pas aimer beaucoup to say 'not like much'. 
Note that beaucoup will come after pas:  "

Is this supposed to say ""You can also use "ne aimer pas beaucoup"?

Ne pas + <infinitive> is the most common instance where ne pas does not bracket the verb. For example:

C'est mieux avoir aimé une fois que ne jamais avoir aimé du tout. -- It is better to have loved once than never to have loved at all.

Note that ne jamais are together and stand before the past infinitive (avoir aimé).
