Hey guys,

currently I'm using Toolset mainly on websites for my customers.
For a special (SEO-based) business model I need to limit the number of entries which can be done at certain custom post types or certain custom taxonomies.

I want to limit the number of entries which could be made there. The number of entries depends on the certain custom post type or the certain custom taxonomy. If this limit is reached there should appear a simple info line.

How could I implement these limits?

Thanks in advance

Hi Benjamin,

Thank your for contacting our support forum.

For your specific request this isn't possible with our toolset plugins, so an external solution will be requirements.

I was able to find something that should be able to assist you.

Hello Shane,

thank you for your fast answer.
The plugin you've posted is only working with custom post types. Do you maybe know another solution which is working with taxonomies?

Thanks,
Ben

Hi Benjamin,

Unfortunately, the only other solution I know is to get a custom one.

To do this you will need to get in touch with one of the contractors that are registered on our site.

Although in the plugin I sent description I saw that it said Any Post Type.

Thanks,
