You or the plugin creators will have to be doing something catastrophically bad for a page or site to crash from that much usage, even with database querying or extra PHP processing, etc. The rest will be client side on the user's browser. You could code the most inefficient stuff and it'll still won't have much more (or even less) of an impact on the server than a basic Wordpress post with caching.Now that my content engine is more or less in place, I'd like to transition to interactive tools (calculators, quizzes, etc.)
But before I decide on a specific path, I want to make sure that:
- It can be executed quickly (I'd like to have at least 5 tools up & running by end of next week)
- Scale with traffic (1000's of daily uses and tens/hundreds of concurrent users)
- Works with WordPress
Has anyone gone down this path before? What do you recommend?
But typically I'd say get it completed and done and then go back to optimizing if even needed, because pre-optimization is a trap.
