I am about to convert an old site that have approx. 3000 pages to WordPress for a museum. Rather minimalistic layout: navigation to the left, a main column and a sidebar.

Since almost all material is "static" I am leaning towards using post type Page together with custom categories for manage the hierarchy of the site.

Also I would like to be able to set an special index-page for every category without having to make an custom template.

Has any one experience of working with a really big site (content wise)?

How to you structure the pages?

How do you handle the permalinks? By post title and category? Since it's more of less static content I feel that I cannot use dates.

Any hints och links are much appreciated!

Regards, J

    There's a potential performance problem, with large number of hierarchical cpt, regarding parent selection. More about that here. – birgire Aug 20 '15 at 17:21
