    Submission Limits & PHP File/ RSS Report

    Asked by jaycw7 on September 05, 2012 at 07:11 PM

    I originally commented on this http://www.jotform.com/help/read.php?if_id=169

    Hey guys

    What do you mean upload this to your website? My CMS is WordPress and I use Blue Host which supports PHP. Do I copy the code onto my wordpress page?

    I asked tech support at bluehost and they helped me uload it on my file manager but did not understand the instructions here on what to do further.

    Thanks!

    Awesome thank you.

     

    The million dollar question is.....

    I am wanting to limit submissions for certain purchase forms.  Will this work for that? The problem we were seeing before was that when someone filled out a form and hit submit and got redirected to the paypal page, it still counted as a submission.  This was using the method of creating a unique ID and and conditions.

     

    Example:

    When Unique ID field hits 020, hide submit button and show 'sold out' image.

    Does this use a different format and will a submission only count as a submission once payment has been a successfully completed?  or will this still count 'incomeplete submissions' as being submissions?

     

    Thanks

    Love that you guys enabled this! I am wondering if there is a way to automatically enable the form on a specific date as easily as this or do you just use conditions to accomplish this?

    Just tried it on 2 forms.  One old and one brand new and neither work.  What have I done wrong? I followed the guide to a tee.

    With regards to JotForm's submissions limit feature, I was able to reproduce the problem. I will now inform our developers about this for immediate resolution.
