how you would use it on section list?

How do you make it count the number of articles. I can only make it count the number of pages on a section (list / landing) or search page.

To count articles, call it with pageby="1" attribute (this will not alter the pagination). To limit the count to some sections (categories, etc), set them in <txp:article_custom /> as usual:

<txp:article_custom section='<txp:section />' pgonly pageby="1" />

Aha, pageby="1", that is what I missed! Thank you for the hint sir.

Hi Gallex

The edited version below works on one of my txp 4.6.2 sites

can’t figure out anymore, where i should insert the <txp:mdn_count /> in my section list code:

<txp:section_list break="" default_title="Home" include_default="0" sections="houses,apartments,farms" wraptag="ul" class="sub">
  <li<txp:if_section name='<txp:section />'> class="active"</txp:if_section>><txp:section link="1" title="1" /></li>
</txp:section_list>

to achieve this:

  • houses (5)
  • apartments (12)
  • farms (4)

Re: simple plugin for counting articles

Right after the sections? I don’t know mdn_count, though:

<txp:section_list break="" default_title="Home" include_default="0" sections="houses,apartments,farms" wraptag="ul" class="sub">
  <li<txp:if_section name='<txp:section />'> class="active"</txp:if_section>><txp:section link="1" title="1" /> (<txp:mdn_count section='<txp:section />' />)</li>
</txp:section_list>
