What is the name of the category count plugin (3 posts)

    I am looking for the plugin which tells you how many posts have been made in a particular category. It normally appears in the sidebar with a number in parentheses ( for example Articles (59) . In my blog I just have the word Articles but the number after refers to the amount of posts that have been made to that category.

    If somebody could tell me what this plugin is called and where I can get it from I would appreciate it.

    you can do it without a plugin by altering the sidebar or whever you have it pulling catgegory names fromt the database and changing the way WP displays it on the theme.

    something like
    <?php wp_list_cats('sort_column=name&optioncount=1&hierarchical=0'); ?>
