I've read a few threads both here and elsewhere about Wordpress having performance issues once a certain amount of pages have been published. But, most of these threads are at least a couple years old, and it seems like an issue that Wordpress would try to fix.
So - my question - does anyone know if this is still an issue? If, so are there any work arounds that would keep performance issues from occurring? I'm thinking of building a site using mostly static pages, and the site could grow into the 5,000 - 10,000 page range.
