Hello, please help me solve a problem. How do I limit the number of attendees in an event? I want each person can register only once per event.

Thank you!

Hi Helio,

You can limit the number of attendees to an event from the Event Options in the individual events on the right. Simply add a number in the box marked Attendee Limit.

Restricting a customer to only registering for the event once is much harder and not something built into Event Espresso.

There is the [SESSION_ID] shortcode that may help you with programming something to this effect, but it can still be worked around if the customer really wants to (clear cookies, change browser, change pc).

A further option would be having a membership system in place and coding something based around that but again it would be a custom job and probably fairly large.

Dean, it’s really a pity. I’ll admit that I was very disappointed with this news because I can not imagine an event which a person buys several chairs. At least, here in Brazil, we have a culture where everyone does their own registration/subscription. Now I have to change the plugin’s source-code to do this function works. Ahfff…
