Support » Everything else WordPress » N00b Question – WordPress for bigger community sites useable?

  • Hello,

    I have been a joomla user for a while now but am getting more and more interested in WordPress these days.

    I have got a community page project right now including three different levels of usr-rights and so on atm. Functionality wise I can see WordPress being very capable of what I need. However I am just wondering if it will be able to handle the much heavier traffic then on a blog.

    Of course the main bottleneck will be the server, but is word press itsself capable for this sort of task or should I stick to mainly using it as a blogging app?

    thanks a lot for all comments
    cheers

  • Take a look at buddypress.org. A full socialnetwork script that runs on top of wordpress.

    Just take a look at wordpress.com (a single install of wordpressMU with millions of blogs and users) or edublogs.org with more than 300.000 users.

    Or just click on http://wordpress.org/showcase and see lots of large and famous websites powered by wordpress.

    So yes wordpress can handle large communities.

    Hey vteira,

    thanks a lot for the reply. I will definitely check out buddypress.org. (WordPressMu doesn’t really full fill my needs from what I could see).

    cheers
