Input error

Another question…
We have a playgroup that runs over 10 weeks. During this time we offer clients the ability to pay in full or to pay casually. We have prices set up for single child families and then for larger families. The problem is we then go over our input value or something to that effect. This term I only put in five weeks and then tried to duplicate it but it would be great if we could add more in to save the extra admin time. Any other suggestions of how we could make this work?

Hi Vicci,

Do you mean you go over the max_input_vars value? You should see a notice on the screen when that happens that tells you the max_input_vars value and the current number of inputs.

But either way if that’s the problem you can increase the value set for that option on your server (its not an EE setting but a PHP setting on your server), by default its 1000, if you double it you’ll get roughly double the number of tickets but I’d recommend 3000 as it gives you a little more wiggle room.

To set a higher value you can add this:

php_value max_input_vars 3000
php_value suhosin.get.max_vars 3000
php_value 3000
php_value suhosin.request.max_vars 3000

To your sites .htaccess file, if you are unsure I’d recommend contacting your host and have them increase the limit for you on their end.
