Too Many Widgets - Best Way To Setup Site? (2 posts)

    Hello,
    I'm working on building a site that will have about 50 pages to start, each of which will have approximately 5 widgets per page. New pages will be added on a weekly or monthly basis in the future.

    As you can imagine, this has already started to slow down my site administration area, and I only have a half dozen of the pages created. I'm currently using the "Custom Widgets" plug-in to add widgets to the pages I desire.

    I'm trying to figure out the best way to manage all of this information, while minimizing the drag on the administration area.

    Can anyone make any recommendations? Should I split the site into multiple installs that share the same database so the "Widgets" section won't be as filled up? (It would still be pretty large though)

    If anyone has any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

    I forgot to mention that the widgets I am using are the same on each page, however, the information that is displayed in each widget is different from page to page. Here's a list of the widgets i'm using:

    1. Text (To Display Video)
    2. WP Polls
    3. WP Petition
    4. Live Countdown Timer

    On another side note, I currently have 17 active plug-ins. Also, on the widgets page, I have the following widgets:

    (4) Text (To Display Video)
    (4) Polls
    (4) Petition
