I'm trying to display a integer with total post counts of a specific category including all its child categories (over one hundred).
wp count posts doesn't work for me because it counts everything, while I only need a precise category and all its child categories
I've tried with wp list categories, but it returns also an array with category names; I don't need the category names, only the total count of posts and it must be a sum of all posts from these different categories
I haven't found any plugin suitable for my goal
how to achieve what I want?
thanks for the help
