Create a Submission Limit Using JotForm with PHP and RSS ReportsLast Update: April 10, 2016
Update: Submissions limit has been implemented as a Jotform core feature. Check this guide to learn how: How to Limit Submissions in a Form.
For those who urgently need the submission limit feature, we have a quick solution for you.
But first thing's first, this is going to be outside JotForm's feature so you'll get your hands a bit dirty with a bit of script downloading and coding a bit (or some copy-pasting since the code is given below).
1. Create your RSS report for your form: -How-to-Create-an-RSS-Listing-Report-. You don't have to include all fields, just three non-sensitive information to show as the report has a probability of getting scanned by Google (I know some of you don't want the submissions to show in Google's search results).
2. Download the compressed (zip) file (LastRSS script): http://lastrss.oslab.net/index.php?q=download
3. Extract the file and upload it on your website.
4. Copy this code and paste it into your PHP file where your form is: http://pastebin.com/raw/XgK7PMdg
5. Save your PHP file and upload it on your website
Please take note of the highlighted ones enclosed in brackets, these are the ones to be changed with your preferred/specific values.
