Can WP handle 5000+ posts? (3 posts)

    is there any limit to how many posts I can make and still keep things running smoothly?

    for example can this baby handle 5000 total posts in the mysql database and still run the whole site flawlessly?

    Scale is determined by mysql not WP. Not quite sure what the max is but huge anyway.

    The only problem you might have is a performance hit if you try to have WordPress build the page to show all 5000 posts at once. Other than that, you are probably only limited by whatever storage space you have available to you. Check out the limitations of MySQL and your server and PHP and you will have your answer. WordPress simply assembles all the parts for you.
