Could a site with over 15,000 pages have page loading issues when most pages are using fetch data, dynamic content and global blocks?


15,000 pages refers to the number of site pages that can be seen by visitors to the site, and not the actual amount of pages/Composer blocks that will be created to manage the content.

We are building over 500 microsites, with about 30 pages each, that will all share around 80% of their content with a "Master site" that will sit at the start (home page) of the tree structure.

We will be sharing the content by creating a library of assets. In the library of assets there will be some:

  • Pages with content that are placed onto the "Master site" pages using Dynamic content.
  • Pages that contain blocks of Dynamic content from other pages, that appear on the "Master site" pages using Fetch data.
  • Pages with content that are placed onto the "Master site" pages using Dynamic content within Global blocks.

Approximately 15 pages of the "Master site" will be the same on every site, so we expect to use Fetch data at least 7,500 times.

Has anyone else built anything similar, or used similar methods to build a complex site and come across any performance issues?

Hi, it should be ok to build such solution but you need to limit the way editors retrieve content. Also make sure your code works with large content. I would sugest that you have a script generating this amount of content before you release the website and test it.

Of course a page that is showing a lot of content from other part of the website might become slow. So look at ways to cache your data is important.

Thanks, Eric. We will certainly look at testing the solution as suggested. Although, I now think that we won't be using Fetch data quite so much.
