Count WordPress Posts

and like us on FB

This was one of the shortcodes we ever shared to count the number of WP posts. For a more robust function, see this article.

To count other post types, see this page . For example, you might count drafts as $count_posts->draft; and pages as wp_count_posts('page');.

The wp_count_posts() can be used to find the number for post statuses of any post type. This includes attachments or any post type added in the future, either by a plugin or part of the WordPress Core.
