WP Max Submit Protect

Prevent large forms being submitted that may blow the server's field count limit and lose data.

Who is this plugin for?

Any WordPress site that uses forms which have lots of fields. For example, a WooCommerce site containing products with many variations.

Is this just for WooCommerce sites?

No! Any WordPress application that submits big forms can benefit from the protection this plugin offers. Sites with multi-page forms implemented through GravityForms could use this.

Are there any configuration options?

Through the plugin no; you just install and go. There may be some server settings to update, and the purpose of this plugin is to warn you about those.

What are the PHP.ini settings that may need to be changed?

The PHP ini settings that could affect the data in large forms are:

  • max_input_vars
  • suhosin.post.max_vars
  • suhosin.request.max_vars

You may have all, some or none of these settings configured. If none are set, then max_input_vars will default to 1000. This is certainly too low for some e-commerce plugins.
