Say I have a category 'articles' that is a subpage of the main page. Ofcourse, the site grows and can't keep all on one page. So have to link to them, somewhere. But a link page to all articles also can't contain 1000 links. So I could make something like articles/list/1, articles/list/2 etc. But that's a deeper leven than my articles, which are like articles/1 for the first one. So how to optimally do this? How do you guys do it?

A question about this: since not all links on (eg) a level 2 to a level 3 will fit on one /level_1/level_2/ page, will it hurt to use level_1/level_2/page_x/ for further links?

You can't find a way to logically divide the level two pages into manageable subsets?

E.g.,

Instead of:
widgets > blue widgets

Try:
widgets > light blue widgets
widgets > dark blue widgets

Failing that, then yes, you could do level 2/page 2.

You must have a lot of content. ;-)

Maybe I could do a better job of splitting them up indeed. I don't have a lot of content, but even if someone has only 100 pages I think it's a better user experience not to put them all in 1 page with just a long list.

Thanks for the help. :)
