What does it do?

This Plugin allows you limit the number of post, pages or custom types a user can create in your site.

How does it work?

Say you have a multiple author blog and you want to limit the number of posts each author can post.
Another example would be using multisite install of WordPress and you want to allow each sub site to have only 4 pages (or more if that user pays you) then this plugin is just for that.

very simple and light wieght plugin that runs only when user tries to crate a new post of any kind (post,page,attachment,or any custom post type) and check if he has reached his limit.



  • Limit number of any post type creation.
  • Select Post Status to count. (NEW)
  • Limit number of any post type creation by user Role. (NEW)
  • Limit number of any post type creation by user ID. (NEW)
  • New Limit Rule System (faster and stable).
  • Custom blocked message For each Rule. (NEW)
  • MultiSite Support. (Fixed and works better then before)
  • ADD NEW Links are removed when limit is reached (NEW)
  • 0 Now means ZERO so Its actually blocks the user from creating at all

Simple Installation steps:

  1. Extract the zip file and just drop the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation.
