Is there a limit to the number of replies (General)

and keep the site speedy?

I have one thread that has 2000 replies now, most of the replies are just text and the entire thread has about 10 images small in size, I do have avatars enabled though

and when I click to open the entire thread it takes about 15-20 seconds before it fully loads

Is it a case of the script is not designed for that many replies? or is it more a case of a problem at the host server?

Thanks

Holy [whatever]!

You do open the thread, displaying all entries at once? Do you open the thread in the linear or in the nested view?

Is it a case of the script is not designed for that many replies?

I assume this to be caused by the script. Especially, when generating the entries tree (computing which entry is a reply to which entry) for the nested view the script generates a nested structure, comparing one entry to another entry and putting it onto the correct place in the structure. This is the same structure as you see in the thread trees but with more content (all necessary informations to display the whole entries and not only the informations to generate the links).

or is it more a case of a problem at the host server?

You can not eliminate this as a possible cause but IMHO the probability for the script causing this issue is greater.

Tschö, Auge

It's only when I open the full thread displaying all posts in the thread. So when I click "open in thread" either on the original post or any replies the browser loading circle spins and nothing else happens, it just sits there for like 15-20 seconds before then instantly loading the page but I think most people would have given up waiting before that.

I can have it set to Linear or Hierarchical and it seems to be about the same loading time.

Like I said the thread is mainly just text, no large jpg or gifs or any links.
