    hi there, we get around 10k of visits a day and the articles are very long, im talking 5000 to 15000 words on average, our webhost support says that the length and the amount of these posts are helping to cause high loads on the server. so can that be true.

    thanks,

  2. Long posts in anything can slow down your site, you should split up the posts by pages, or into separate posts.

    Thank you, is there a plugin that can do this so we dont have to break up 300+ articles manually.

  4. A plugin can't know where to split your posts, and even if it did it by simple word count, you might get a cut in the middle of a paragraph.

    So no, you gotta do it manually.

    I find posts of over 1500 words don't generally get read, so I split them into separate posts.
