  • Single Thread With 150,000 posts

    Is there any reason why this isn't a good idea? I always heard the rumor that it's best to limit threads to 10k posts.

    True or not?

    I think its not a good idea. Also not good for SEO.

        We have 15 threads locked and archived with all the same theme because I've always heard there's a soft 10k post limit per thread but if that's not true it'd be cool to have one thread with 150,000 posts.

          There isn't a hard limit in vBulletin, but in terms of PHP and database use I'd say 10K is a good number, you don't want threads to get out of hand- just lock it and ask people to continue in a new thread- still a good idea.

          Whether you want to limit it to 10, 20k, or 100k, depends on how your server handles it.

          I've got a 15K post thread personally and it seems to be stressing my shared server, i wouldn't want it to get much bigger.
