Ok, so I have approximately 1300 static pages that I created outside of my normal posts. I created each page separately for a high resolution photograph that was linked to from my post. For example, my original post would have ten thumbnails and clicking each thumbnail would take you to one of these static pages which shows the photograph.
I'm having a problem now though. Whenever I create a new static page with a photo, it is published but it also brings my entire blog down and I can't access certain parts of the dashboard like posts and pages. I get fatal error messages like maximum time exceeded etc.
The only way I can fix this is to go into the database and randomly delete some past static pages. That is the only way for me to get everything working again.
So my question is: did I hit a limit of how many static pages I can have or is my database simply corrupted?
And if I did reach a limit on pages, is there another way to deal with publishing these photographs outside of the posts.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks for the time.
