Can I limit form submissions from the same IP / User?

I wanted to know if there was a script/code that could be implemented to achieve sometime of function that one would select something along the lines of " Limit the number of form submissions from the same IP to then set that number?

Reason for asking is because I have customers/clients that keep re-submitting after the first time being a problem because I then don’t know if there form request was first or last.

Yes, I think this free plugin will do exactly what you need to do:

I followed the code and set the limits to 1 for subscribers and contributors, for a specific form:

/* START Submission Limit - ray 09-10-2021*/
new GW_Submission_Limit( array(
‘form_id’ => 4,
‘limit_by’ => ‘role’,
// when “limit_by” is set to “role”, “limit” must be provided as array with roles and their corresponding limits
‘limit’ => array(
‘subscriber’ => 1,
‘contributor’ => 1
)
) );
/* END Submission Limit - ray 09-10-2021*/

However, it threw an error message. It doesn’t like “GW_Submission_Limit”. What am I missing?:

Did you implement the full code snippet available when clicking the show code or download code buttons? Or just the configuration portion?

Based on that error, I’d assume the GW_Submission_Limit class isn’t be instantiated because it’s missing.
