Limitations of using pages for storing content

UCSD Extension asked on June 7, 2016 20:24

Can we get some clarifications about the limitations of using pages for storing content?

From this post "https://docs.kentico.com/display/K9/Defining+website+content+structure", it says "each item (page) in the content tree have at most 1,000 direct child pages".

(1) what does it mean by "each item (page)"?
Does it mean any node in the content tree is a page?
For example: From the Corporate Site, Images folder (icon image of a folder side-way), is this considering as an item (page)? Or only items which have a page types defined, then consider as a page?

(2) What does it mean "1,000 direct child pages"? Does this 1,000 include any direct children of children?

Your answer will help us in organizing the content in the content tree. Thank you.

For this example: Page = Node = Item (we'll call them all the same thing but understand there are some technical differences we won't discuss).

If you have a website (www.domain.com) and it has 10 top level pages and each of those top level pages has 10 sub pages, those sub pages are direct children. Now if each of your sub level pages have 10 sub pages, you've simply taken your 10 page site into a 1,000 page site.

  • page 1 (node, up to 1,000 directly under /page 1)
    • page 1 (child nodes)
    • page 2
    • page 3
    • page 4
    • page 5
    • page 6
    • page 7
    • page 8
    • page 9
    • page 10
  • page 2
    • page 1 (child nodes, up to 1,000 directly under /page 2/page 1)
    • page 2
    • page 3
    • page 4
    • page 5
      • page 1 (child nodes, up to 1,000 directly under /page 2/page 5/page 1)
      • page 2 (child nodes, up to 1,000 directly under /page 2/page 5/page 2)
      • page 3
      • page 4
      • page 5
      • page 6
      • page 7
      • page 8
      • page 9
      • page 10
    • page 6
    • page 7
    • page 8
    • page 9
    • page 10
