I am evaluating Bolt for use in a new project. It seems ideal to handle superusers (editors), but can it handle very many (over 1000) limited users (for example, readers)? These users should be able to post sub-content (i.e. comments), but not first-class content (i.e. articles). Specifically I am curious about the following:
--Is it possible to avoid (or re-theme) the dashboard for a class of users (i.e. readers)? The purpose would be so they could log in and leave comments and other minor content without having "feeling" like they're registering for / logging into a CMS
--If so, would the performance be reasonable with perhaps 100 concurrent "readers" and 50,000 "readers" in the user database?
--If this is not possible out-of-the box, is it possible to write an extension to accomplish this?
--If not possible via extensions, is it feasible to extend the Silex app directly? Was Bolt designed to work concurrently with other php/silex applications/frameworks?
I would be very thankful if someone could point me in the right direction.
