I have form A entries to which form B can submit follow up entries. I've filtered form B by [get param=entry] and it works to pull only the entries pertaining to the original form A entry. BUT I would like to disable form B after 5 entries of each entry of form A. I can't limit the form entries to 5 in the build cuz it cuts off after 5 combined for all entries (entry Aa has 3 entries, Ab has 2, then Ac gets none). I've limited entries to 5 in the view and it does only show 5 for each A entry, but the form is still available for more. [entry_count] does accurately show the # of entries for each follow up, so I figured I could use a conditional statement for that, but what I've tried doesn't seem to want to work. Can you use an if statement for entry_count? If no, any advise?

I'm not sure I fully understand your question, but if the entry count shortcode doesn't work, you may want to write your own shortcode so you can count individual entries by form. Since you don't mention anything about users, counting form entries is a relatively straight forward process.
