Support » Plugins » Archive page header plugin

  • I’ve just finished creating my first plugin for WordPress.

    The purpose of the plugin is to create a header line when you are viewing search results (or date archives or category archives), that will tell you how many results there were & where you are in the results.
    Showing results 110 of 45 for the search terms search terms.

    You can download the code here:

    To use it, all you need to do is install it in the plugins folder & then add:
    <?php wp_searchheader()?>

    to the page template wherever you want the search header to appear.

    You can see it in action on any of the archive pages of my site at

    Let me know if you have any suggestions on how it can be improved, or any comments on it.

  • This plugin is cool. I could see this being a regular part of WordPress Search for me.

    Only problem I had, my Search Template currently calls ALL search results by using (-1) which someone on this forum told me about. Could you make the plugin so it says “Showing ALL” instead of “Showing 1 to -1”? On second thought, EDIT: I customized your plugin in my version to say “We found 46 or more results for the search terms: panic.” instead of giving a range at all. I like this better for me. This also works when there’s 1 result (“1 or more results”). But the original way you did it is more conventional.

    Example on my site:

    thanks for the plugin

    OK, uh-oh.

    I installed it on 3 blogs, and it doesn’t work on one of them. Well, the plugin works fine, but there’s an error message at the top of my Admin pages that says:

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /var/www/html/green/wp-content/plugins/resultscount.php:63) in /var/www/html/green/wp-admin/admin.php on line 10, 11, 12, 13

    What’s wrong here?

    I never knew you could do that to make them all display like that.

    I’ve updated it, at the same location as before, to detect whether the -1 value is being used.

    Glad you think it is useful.

    Doesn’t do it for me.

    The problem that you describe (which I have seen before) is this one:

    Caused by white space at the start or end of a php file.

    Thanks mat8, and sorry to hijack your Announce thread with my questions.
    EDIT: Fixed. You’re right there was a white space at the end of my resultscount.php

    Attention: mat8iou

    EDIT: I have now learned that I should look for a blank space at the end of the PHP for this plugin.

    It mentions a problem with UTF-8. Could this be affected by this plugin?

    EDIT2: I found the blank space at the end of the file. Deleted that space, it fixed it. Thanks
