Help Regarding ERC20Capped extension

Hello,

I used wizard to create my token. I customized the decimal and everything as per my need. However, I was unable to implement ERC20Capped.sol in my contract. I read several topics here and documentation on-site, but there seems to be some problem from my side. So can someone provide a guide for the dummy to implement it? I want to cap my minting max to 5.3 million and the initial token amount to be 10k.

Here I am attaching the code of my token. Rest are libraries of openzeppeline so I guess I don't have to add em.

    contract GodToken is ERC20, ERC20Burnable, AccessControl, ERC20Permit, ERC20Votes {

    constructor() ERC20("God Token", "GDTN") ERC20Permit("God Token") {
        _mint(msg.sender, 10000 * 10 ** decimals());
        _setupRole(DEFAULT_ADMIN_ROLE, msg.sender);
        _setupRole(MINTER_ROLE, msg.sender);
    }

    function mint(address to, uint256 amount) public onlyRole(MINTER_ROLE) {
        _mint(to, amount);
    }
    

    // The following functions are overrides required by Solidity.

    function _afterTokenTransfer(address from, address to, uint256 amount)

    }

    function _mint(address to, uint256 amount)
        internal
        override(ERC20, ERC20Votes)
    {
        super._mint(to, amount);
    }

    function _burn(address account, uint256 amount)

        override(ERC20, ERC20Votes)
    {
        super._burn(account, amount);
    }

You can implement your own version of a cap by only allowing mint to work if the total supply of the token is less than 5.3mil tokens.

I understand what you are saying but I don't have much coding background. Can you show an example?

replace your _mint function with this

function _mint(address to, uint256 amount)
    internal
    override(ERC20, ERC20Votes)
{
    require(totalSupply() + amount <= 5300000 * 10 ** decimals(), "Max number of tokens minted");
    super._mint(to, amount);
}

Damn. That worked like charm. Thanks a lot, man. Now all I have to add is fee functionality to the token. Can you help me with that? For every transaction, 0.9% of fees should be sent to the dev's account. Also, this code can be added to the liquidity pool right? Coz the last contract I made had an issue with liquidity. I wasn't able to add liquidity to it.

I could but I would advise against fee on transfer tokens as it breaks many smart contracts (uniswap v2, v3 etc.)

Ohh okay. Thanks a lot for the help. Much appreciated.
