Is there a limit on the number of members?

It seems that the plugin won't let me add more data

The plugin is NOT limiting the number of members or fields you can add to your team in any way. Most of the time, the issue is that the server only saves a predefined number of variables on a page, which can be exceeded if you have a large amount of members.

This is not related to the plugin and has been reported/documented by others before: here, here, here or even there.

How do I fix this?

You can fix this by increasing the maximum number of variables that can be saved on one page. There are two ways you can do this:

Using a php.ini file

This file can already be on your server in some cases but chances are you will have to create it. If you are familiar with this, create a php.ini file to your server and add these lines to it:

max_input_vars = 5000
suhosin.get.max_vars = 5000
suhosin.post.max_vars = 5000
suhosin.request.max_vars = 5000

In some cases the first line will be enough, the next ones perform the same task for when your server is using the Suhosin patch with PHP.

Using .htaccess file

The other way you can solve this is by using the .htaccess file at the root of your server. Open it and paste these lines at the end:

php_value max_input_vars 5000
php_value suhosin.get.max_vars 5000
php_value suhosin.post.max_vars 5000
php_value suhosin.request.max_vars 5000

In some cases the first line will be enough, the next ones perform the same task for when your server is using the Suhosin patch with PHP.

If you cannot find your .htaccess file (sometimes invisible, depending on what method you are using to access you server), try using a plugin like this one that will allow you to edit it from your WordPress admin panel.

Still not working / Do not understand

If none of this is working, we recommend that you ask your web host to help you, these are sensible files and tampering with them can lead to unwanted results. Contact your host and let them know you need to increase the maximum amount of variables saved on your pages (max_input_vars).
