Unlimited Number Of Attendees Displayed…but that's wrong…

We’ve preset a number in the event options stating how many attendees we have capacity for. We throw large events, and these number in the 1000’s. So I need to not display UNLIMITED, but actually display the number we input in the Event Options form for number of attendees.

You can see the unlimited display on our homepage where the two upcoming events are listed.

There’s a function in the functions/main.php file where this can be changed.

on line 535 of the current version, adjust the limit set there accordingly.

This function (starting on line 483) can be copied over to the custom_functions.php file that’s included with the custom files add-on so that it doesn’t get overwritten on an update. I did write up a ticket to address this in a future version, so it might get increased in the next version anyway.

I would hope so, because from where I sit…its like a broken feature. 😉
I appreciate the answer, but that’s just a tad bit above my head.

Thanks anyway.

I just updated the file to change the ceiling from 999 to 99999. It will be fixed when we release the next update, probably early next week.
