How can I change specific quotas.

I am trying to control a quota for my "channels" on my prosites Settings-> Post/Page Quotas. I have the Posts Quota set to 1,000, and the "Channels Quota" has a greyed out dropdown box. How can I change this quota?

    Well the post type was registered through a custom plugin I created.

    register_post_type('channel', array(
    		'labels' => $labels,
    		'description' => 'Channels',
    		'public' => true,
    		'show_ui' => true,
    		'show_in_menu' => true,
    		'menu_icon' => 'glovue.com/wp-content/plugins/tikichannels/channels.png',
    		'_builtin' => false,
    		'query_var' => false,
    		'rewrite' => array( 'slug' => 'channel',),
    		'capability_type' => 'post',
    		'hierarchial' => false,
    		'supports' => array('title','content','editor','excerpt','thumbnail','taxonomy')
    	));
    	flush_rewrite_rules();
    	register_taxonomy_for_object_type( 'category', 'channel' );
    	register_taxonomy_for_object_type( 'post_tag', 'channel' );

    However, this is not the only post type that this is happening with. If you look at the screenshot, this is also happening with "Products", "Slides","Videos", and "Widget Areas".

    Greetings glocare,

    Just touching base to let you now that another release, version 3.3.3, is available to see if it indeed addresses any issues that you are having and here is a change log form the version which has quite a bit in it:

    - WP 3.5 compatibility for XML-RPC module (no Atom, different hooks)
    - Merge Premium Themes page into normal themes list
    - New MarketPress Global Products Filter module
    - Don't show ads in RSS feeds
    - Add in hook for affiliate payments on bulk upgrades
    - Add Japan locale to paypal list
    - Fix db errors in upgrade/install script
    - Fix bug in upload quota messages advertising wrong level

    Please let us know how it goes.

    Cheers, Joe

    Thanks @aecnu, appreciate the followup. I work with @glocare on this project.

    Actually, the problem here was with a misunderstanding with how the quotas function works. It seems that you can only set quotas for 1 post type. It was assumed that we could individually set different quotas for each post type (e.g. 10 for "channels" and 5 for "pages" simultaneously).

    That would be a function that I think would be helpful to add to future releases.

    Any +1s?

    Greetings nicmitchell,

    Thank you for the clarification which is absolutely appreciated.

    You have my +1 for this development and hopefully we can get more members involved that are interested in this feature.

    I am moving this ticket to feature requests and notifying the lead devloper of the request.
