So quick question. This may not make entirely sense to some, but let’s say you had a bunch of different authors. For example 10,000 and they were all going to generate a post each day. Is there technically a limit to the amount of post that can be published at one time?
As long as you had the correct hardware, could a blog built on WordPress handle thousand of authors publishing all at the same time?
Does anyone know if this type of thing has been tested. I would like to build my next project on WordPress, but don’t want to spend the money and then have to redo things. I thought it may be possible, but didn’t know if the system would freeze up. I am not a WordPress expert.
Theme Diva, your thought is that yes, technically I would have a few thousand authors/people all create post and publish them at the same time?
Does anyone know if this type of thing has been tested.
Unlikely as there are simply too many potential variables for the results to have real meaning. As you’ve already identified, the single biggest factor is the server hardware & software. That is almost always what dictates the overall performance of WP. Or any CMS, for that matter.
Will this be one single site or a multisite network?
It would be one website. Think Pinterest. If every pin was it’s own Post, technically you could have thousands of pins/post being created at the same time. This is not what I am doing, but the best way I could explain it.
