handle thousands of pages
|Reported by:||hailin||Owned by:||hailin|
This isn't one issue, it's several, but they're related.
TRAC Ticket #5303 fixes hundreds of pages issue;
when there are thousands of pages, it is still very slow.
It might be -better-, but the scaling issues are present even in 2.5, and they're severe enough that it's grinding my WP install to a halt as I continue to import pages.
Now, to be clear, I have a -lot- of pages. My current test environment has just under 4000, so it takes quite some time to render all those out on one page.
It seems to me that the simplest solution is to rewrite edit-pages so that it paginates, the same way edit-posts does. Is there a reason that this hasn't been done already?
Similarly, if you edit any page (with thousands of pages in the DB), it will take a few minutes minute to render the page-editing screen. The bottleneck is the parent_dropdown function. As a hack, I've removed the box entirely from my page-editing screen (and in the meantime i can use the pageMash plugin if/when I want to change page parent/ordering), but this isn't a long-term solution. Obviously, the "page parent" interface box wasn't designed with this many pages in mind, and I'm going to think about a new design which scales well that I can write as a plugin (or a patch). Any thoughts you have are appreciated Posted: 2008-04-02 18:15:51 # #
Having edit-pages support pagination has been brought up, but hasn't been tackled yet. I suspect the parent-child relationships for pages makes this harder to do that edit-posts.
I'll ramp up a test blog with many pages and see what options we have on making it better.
Just so I'm clear, the two places that this has been the biggest problem is "Manage -> Pages" and "Write -> Page" (page parent box), correct? Are there any other places where you've seen major problems? Posted: 2008-04-02 21:32:31 #
