Support » Plugin: Media Library Assistant » Add a text with number of item (of attachment_category)

    Hi,
    I am using MLA_GALLERY for my website. I have thousands of pictures. With this plugin I have created several categories and sub-categories (using attachment_category) to show each type of my photos. Everything is going very well.
    Now, I’d like to add a text string on top of my pages that could indicate the number of pictures attached to that category. I tried with MLA_TERM_LIST but I cannot filter the output, so it shows all the categories and not each one.

    This is my shortcode:
    CODE
    [mla_term_list taxonomy=attachment_category mla_output=flat show_count=true number=1]

    Can I filter in any way the output? Or any other solution… thanks a lot.

    Thanks for your question. Thanks as well for posting the text of your shortcode; very helpful.

    You can achieve your goal by replacing the number=1 parameter with an include= parameter. For example:

    [mla_term_list taxonomy=attachment_category mla_output=flat show_count=true include=2402]
    

    In the above example “2402” is the term ID of the desired term. You can find the term ID by going to the Media/Att. Categories screen, hovering over (or clicking on) the “Edit” link in the Name column and finding the “tag_ID=” value.

    You can add link=none to eliminate the hyperlink tag surrounding the item text. You can use the mla_link_text parameter to customize the contents.

    I hope that gives you the results you need. I am marking this topic resolved, but please update it if you have any problems or further questions regarding the above suggestions. Thanks for your interest in the plugin.

    Thank you so much for the answer. It works fine.

    However I am now using a custom code snippet with a php function called by a custom shortcode. In this way I can eliminate the “( )” and the name of the term.

    I had just a little trouble with terms such as “Cavaliere d’Italia” because the count was zero… so I have renamed the term as “Cavaliere d-Italia”.

    Thank you again!
