Depnds on the condition of the remaining post, if they are okay then it is alright to replace just the broken post.However if tbe post where all put in at the same time then the wooden post are going to rot at roughly the same time so it might be prudent to replace the lot rather than keep on replacimg thrm as they break.

that would depend on the type of fence, whether it could be matched and the condition of the remainder, regards Terry.

if its fallen down then the post will be better to be replaced also unless the fencing was fitted recently and a poor workmanship was done,if is older then you want to replace the post as well where the area is damaged,on that way in future the fencing will look new and hold properly and save you money
thanks peter

If the remaining posts are strong and sturdy there should be no need to replace them. It might be the broken posts are more exposed to the weather than those still standing, causing them to prematurely rot.
