Using WP as a pure image site?

  1. I want to create an image hosting site and I'm obviously concerned about bandwidth and speed use. Since wordpress is a pretty complex script, wouldnt it load slow as opposed to a standalone image script? I want to use wordprss for the plugins ect ect. If you had to make a image hosting site, would you use wordprses?

  2. You're in the wrong place for answers about plugins. This is a technical support forum for wordpress.com, the multi-user platform which does not use plugins. You need to be at:

    http://wordpress.org/support

  3. IMHO the other wordpress option will meet your needs better than wordpress.com will.

  4. My first thought was: If you want to create a pure image site, why not use Flickr or one of its competitors? But even if you want a blogging tool...
    I saw that you want WordPress for the plugins. You should be aware that, here are WordPress.com, we can't use plugins. Hence ella and timethief's (spot on as usual) suggestions that WordPress.org would be more appropriate.
