    Hi, I would like to know if there is a maximum amount of pages a blog owner can create?

    No there isn't, you can create as many as you want.

  3. HOWEVER, too many pages will slow your site.

    Quoting Otto and why it impacts permalinks.

    I once read a post by a person who had over 50,000 Pages on his site. That is a special case obviously, but consider our lookup system. We’re going through these rules one at a time. With our first method, our rule list was only 10 rules, maximum. With this new method, you add a rule for every single Page you make. Going through 50,000 rules takes a lot longer than going through 10. And even just building that list of rules can take a long time.

    Basically you’ve created a performance issue. Your Pages now won’t scale to unlimited numbers. Your site’s speed is linearly dependent on the number of Pages you have.

    This is a bad thing.

    Much of this is fixed in 3.3, however 50k pages is still going to slow things down a bit :)
