Number of Articles in a Category

  • Answered
Hi! Can you help me with this.

I wanted to show how many articles a category have. (I'm using Joomla 3.0) I have an Article Categories module on the top left position. So a list of categories will show up, right? I want those categories to also show the number of articles they have.

-First Category (31)
-Second Category (24)
-Third Category (10)

Just like that poor example.

Thank you. Really appreciate anyone to help me with this. :)
Hello RenzinMotion, Thank you for your question. I was able to find the documentation on how to list the number of articles in a category in Joomla 2.5, but when I tested in Joomla 3.0 I could not locate and test the settings. Next, I searched the Joomla Extensions directory, to see if there is a 3rd party module for accomplishing this, but they mostly seem to be for older versions of Joomla. You can try these, but we cannot guarantee that they will work. Next, I would recommend that you post a question in the Official Joomla Forums, since many Joomla developers frequently visit there, and provide their expert help. If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below. Thank you, -John-Paul
