How to display the number of search results found (redux) (11 posts)

    In response to this older topic:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/60377

    These solutions seem a little convoluted. Why not just use $wp_query->post_count and save a database call?

    I've also added a small piece of Javascript to forward the user to a post if there is only one result. Pretty useful, but there might be a better way of doing this.

    Here is the code for the top of my search template:

    <?php $num = $wp_query->post_count;	if (have_posts()) : ?>
    		<h2><?php echo $num; ?> Entries Found</h2>
    		<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); if ($num == 1) { ?><script language="Javascript">document.location.href='<?php echo get_permalink($id); ?>';</script><?php } ?>

    Looks like I can answer my own question! $wp_query->post_count will return the results per page instead of total results. Oh well.

    This seems best then:

    $mySearch =& new WP_Query("s=$s & showposts=-1");
    $num = $mySearch->post_count;

    I found this very useful, thanks

    I now use this in my search template

    <h2>Displaying <?php $num = $wp_query->post_count; if (have_posts()) : echo $num; endif;?> of <?php $search_count = 0; $search = new WP_Query("s=$s & showposts=-1"); if($search->have_posts()) : while($search->have_posts()) : $search->the_post(); $search_count++; endwhile; endif; echo $search_count;?> Results </h2>

    This is great to show how many posts are currently displayed out of a total of posts, but does anyone know of a way to show which section of posts are being displayed? For example the text returned would be:

    Showing 11-20 of 54 posts?

    If you look at wordpress.org's search results, this is basically what I'm trying to achieve.

    I would prefer not to use a numbered system similar to that of the pagenavi plugin if at all possible.

    Thanks,

    I found a nice plugin that does the trick. With a little customization, you can easily display the results exactly as you want.

    replace:
    if( have_posts () ) :

    with:

    if ( ! $_GET["cat"] == '' ) { $filter_cat = '&cat='.$_GET["cat"]; }
    $allsearch = &new WP_Query('s='.str_replace(' ', '+', get_search_query()).'&showposts=-1'.$filter_cat);
    $count = $allsearch->post_count;
    wp_reset_query();
    
    if( have_posts () ) :
    $have_post = '1';
    $actual_url = currentURL();
    $constructed_url = get_bloginfo(url).'/search/'.str_replace(' ', '+', get_search_query()).'/';
    $replace = str_replace('page', '', str_replace('/', '', str_replace($constructed_url, '', $actual_url)));
    $count_max = $replace*10;
    if ( $count_max < $count ) { $the_max = $count_max; } elseif ( $count_max >= $count ) { $the_max = $count; }
    $the_min = $replace*10-9;
    $display_count = 'Results '.$the_min.' - '.$the_max.' of '.$count;
    $display_count = str_replace('Results -9 - 0 of', 'Results 1 - 10 of', $display_count);

    Then place
    <?php echo $display_count; ?>
    where you wanna show it.

    I print_r the variable wp-query and found this field: found_posts.

    So, my code now looks like this:

    <p class="search-count">Hay <?=$wp_query->found_posts;?> resultados.</p>

    I've done something like this:

    <table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
    	<tbody>
    		<tr>
                    <td align="left">
                        Results for <b><?php echo strip_tags($s); ?></b>
                    </td>
                    <td align="right">Results <?php
    $num_cb = $wp_query->post_count;
    $id_cb = $paged;
    $r_cb=1;
    $startNum_cb = $r_cb;
    $endNum_cb = 10;
    if($id_cb >=2) {
      $s_cb=$id_cb-1;
      $r_cb=($s_cb * 10) + 1;
      $startNum_cb=$r_cb;
      $endNum_cb=$startNum_cb + ($num_cb -1);
    }
    
    if (have_posts()) :
     echo "<b>$startNum_cb-$endNum_cb</b>";
    endif;
    
    $totaltime= number_format($load,4);
    
    ?> of overall <?php $search_count = 0; $search = new WP_Query("s=$s & showposts=-1"); if($search->have_posts()) : while($search->have_posts()) : $search->the_post(); $search_count++; endwhile; endif; echo "<b>$search_count</b>. (<b>$totaltime</b> seconds)";?></td>
    		</tr>
    	</tbody>
    </table>

    Which displays the following:
    Results for affiliate Results 1-10 of overall 41. (0.6956 seconds)

    Then on the next page:
    Results for affiliate Results 11-20 of overall 41. (0.1994 seconds)

    Any ideas out there on how one would include a result count in the pagination? For instance, your search finds 25 results, and you're showing 10 posts per page. Your page navigation would be:

    << Previous 1-10 11-20 21-25 Next >>

    I've seen solutions like those above that will show "Displaying N of N results," and I have seen solutions for numbered page navs (a la, Google) elsewhere... Is there a way to combine the two?
