    I am thinking of launching a similar site to thisiswhyimbroke or firebox (all the product will be aff. products, so no shopping cart required). I am concerned that Wordpress will not be able to handle/become sluggish over time with lots of posts.

    Anyone has any recommendation for any other suitable CMS for this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes they are but they also have done some heavy tweaking to make things faster.

    Wordpress will not really become slower with the amount of posts. But it's kind of slow by default, compared to what is possible. It might be a problem when the workload gets too much, but I guess once you'll reach the point, you'll have enough money to get a decent server to solve this problem.

    To make it short:

    Yep.

    Wordpress is totally fine for what you're planning to do.

    Hi mate

    If you want a lightning fast website, do not use any CMS software. They come with a lot of bullshit stuffs which are not needed for your website. If you do not want to reinvent the wheel, try using a framework. Yii framework for example is pretty good, and it also comes with query caching.
    If speed is your main concern, I suggest using SLIM php framework. It is lightning fast and you can use it in conjunction with Wordpress too. You can actually use your default wp-admin, set USE_THEMES as false and then load the frontend using SLIM ;)

    As for site optimization, I posted a thread here. Check it out too if you want :)

    I have WP sites that have 50,000 posts + and I do notice them slowing down a lot especially if you have lots of tags and categories too.

    Why not divide the items by a few categories, and make things easier for the viewers? TIWIAB was also a PITA after seeing the first few 1,000 or so items. :D Viewers will never see the end of it and they will eventually get more bored than become anxious buyers, and that shouldn't be the purpose of any such wonderful site imo.
