[Resolved] Is there a limit on pages?

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

    HOWEVER, too many pages will slow your site.

    Quoting Otto and why it impacts permalinks.

    Category in Permalinks Considered Harmful

    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 🙂

    Thank you so much guys!
