Support » Plugin: Simple Blog Stats » Shortcode for count of posts/types with a specific term?

  • Resolved cogdog


    I’ve been using this great plugin on several sites, thanks much.

    While I can get the number of taxonomy terms, what about the number of posts or cpts that have the term? e.g. [sbs_terms tax=”stuff” term=”coolest”] for the number of “Stuff post types with the term “coolest”?

    Hi @cogdog,

    Thanks for these ideas, will see about adding them in a future version of the plugin. Cheers

    Just to follow up with this, the next version of the plugin includes a shortcode for displaying the number of posts that belong to a specific post type and taxonomy. It looks like this:

    [sbs_tax_posts tax="taxonomy" terms="term-1, term-2, term-3" type="custom_post_type"]

    You’ll be able to find more infos about it in the documentation once released.

    Thanks for the idea, @cogdog.

    This is awesome, Jeff. It’s a all to rare reward when a developer not only listens to your idea, but makes it real.

    How do I write this shortcode correctly for displaying the number of posts in the id 7 category?
    I tried
    [sbs_tax_posts tax=”сats” terms=”7″ type=”post”]
    [sbs_tax_posts tax=”сats” terms=”term-7″ type=”post”]
    [sbs_tax_posts tax=”1″ terms=”7″ type=”post”]
    and many other. Not working.

    That’s not the right shortcode to use for counting posts by category, should be something like:

    [sbs_posts cat="cat_slug_name"]

    The value of cat="" should be the slug name for your category, not id, which you find in your Posts -> Categories setting

    It’s better to set up and test shortcodes in the plugin settings page or refer to
