Tyme and I do a podcast and the entries for these podcasts consistently get over a 100 comments with the largest receiving over 500. The site that currently hosts the podcasts and discussions runs ExpressionEngine, but we are planning on moving the podcast to its own domain and of course I requested that we use WordPress.
The problem is we can’t think of any site that runs WordPress that receive such a large number of comments on a consistent basis (brain fart no doubt) so we aren’t sure about performance issues. Also is anyone aware if comments can be paginated (eg. every 100 comments a new page is started)?
So if you could provide some examples of WordPress and its ability to handle large comment load I would greatly appricate it. I have no doubt it can handle the load, but it’s always nice to have a little security on your side.
