Many site owners want to limit the number of members that can sign up for a membership level. This is useful if you are restricting membership for a unique course or training experience, or just want to create some scarcity as a marketing tactic.
The recipe adds a setting on the Memberships > Membership Levels > Edit Level admin page where you can set a value for “Maximum Members”. Once that limit is reached, no additional registrations will be allowed. Encourage visitors to join now by displaying this limit in your site in the format “2/10 spots available”.
