View Full Version : How large can UDM4 get?

How many menu items can UDM4 support?

We have a large menu, which sadly is dragging the entire page due to the amount of html involved.

So my question is is UDM4 suitable for large menus - and are there any realtime examples?

The menu would be a multi-nested system.

Many thanks.

How large is your menu? I've created a php script to generate a menu with 100 main links, each with a sub menu of 20 links and each of those with a sub menu of 5 links, so that's 10,000 items. The only thing I noticed is that's a lot of html to spit back from the browser, so rendering is a little slow (on my box it was about 1 - 2 secs to load / render the page. But I doubt there's a cleaner implementation out there. At some point, shear volume of links will impact performance.

probably around 1,000

All I have to do now is to see if it will even work within a portal box on a forum.

I have a horrible feeling that it may not.
