I’m just thinking about using discourse instead of vbulletin5 to start a new community for a larger website.
Are there any examples for discourse on big communities, with +1000 new postings per day?
And whats your experience with scalability and performance of the discourse system on large websites with +100000 unique/day?
I’m searching for a highly flexible system. We need SSO and we would use it also for comments, which would mean that parts of discourse would be loaded on nearly each site.
The mainproblem I have is, that nearly all stuff on this website is in php/mysql and the dev-team is also working in php only so long. Is it easy to work with discourse for highly skilled php developers, or do I need a ruby guy for this?
