Unable to reach "Edit Page" screen when Wordpress admin has a few thousand pages.
|Reported by:||jorenrapini||Owned by:|
We have a website on Wordpress 3.3.2 with around 8,000 pages on it. We've tried moving the website to multiple hosting accounts and even a server with 1GB of dedicated memory, all plugins disabled, but it seems we hit a threshold in what Wordpress is capable of serving.
Wordpress seems to be running an extremely inefficient query to serve its Pages and Page Edit admin screens. After having too many pages, these screens will simply just load forever. Wp_list_pages query seems to do something similar, that was causing any pages an extra couple of minutes to load on the front end, but once I replaced it with a custom MySQL query to produce the same results, the pages loaded instantly. I cannot do the same with the admin though :(
