WordPress should start planning to introduce a version that will write out static HTML pages instead of always relying on the database. It’s clear that WordPress isn’t optimized enough as a platform to run strictly off a database, as a dynamic site, and until now, only crutches have been introduced (like WP Cache or WP Super Cache), which solve part of the problem and introduce yet more issues.
The only thing that will allow WP to scale properly for high traffic and to put much less load on the web server is for it to write out static HTML files for every post, natively, without any extension which only introduces overhead and makes it harder to back up the site files.
Are there plans in the works to do this?
