How many rules can be added to a condition?

    Is it unlimited?  I have a condition that informs a user whether or not their keyword has been taken.  As keywords are claimed, I was planning on adding each one manually to the rules, so that if another user tried to enter an already-claimed keyword, they receive the message "Sorry, that keyword is taken".

    Will I run into any problems if my added rules get into the 100s, possibly 1,000s?  Is there a better way to do this, like having it check against an external file I have hosted somewhere?

    I don't think it would be that much of any issue into the 100s, but many 1000s could cause some kind of resource issue on the clients PC. 


    No, there really isn't any other way to do it, other than manually entering the used keyword in the relevant forms conditions.

    You could achieve this (automated) functionality with some php code hosted on a webserver & some javascript, but it would include a fair amount of work as it is relatively sophisicated.
