API Limitations on amount of calls and return data

There are a few limitations you should be aware of when using the API which will avoid some headaches.

Return limits on calls

All individual calls will return a maximum of 98 entries even through you can set the “Max” parameter higher than 100.

For example, using the /event/{Event Id}/all to get all posts from an event, you will notice we can set the “Max” to 1000. However the returned data will only have a maximum of 99 entries. To adjust for this, we recommend using the pagination calls for posts and call the needed pages as needed.
