    Submission limits

    Asked by jaycw7 on September 07, 2012 at 03:24 PM


    I've embedded a test form into my website and I put a submission limit of 4 entries.  The limits are not working on my embedded form but when I go to the Jotform dashboard, the form is disabled.


    I'd prefer to not make the URL of the form public at this time. 


    Also, I have been talking extensively with Liyam and others about using the RSS Report/PHP file method for limiting form submissions.  I will have my forms embedded on a Facebook tab created with the GroSocial Customizer and I will have the exact same form embedded on my website.  Will the RSS/PHP method work only on the form that is embedded on my website or will it work on the one on Facebook as well?

    This workaround requires you to upload the PHP script file into a website, and  as far I I know, you can't execute PHP on Facebook unless you write a Facebook App or widget which accesses data from your php application which can be stored into your website running PHP service.

    There is also a PHP Client API for Facebook which can be used to tie together Facebook and your PHP web application. And in that way, make the PHP script to work in your FB page.
