Add-On Type(s)



Adds an {absolute_total_results} tag to entries tag, for use with pagination.

Because the “limit” parameter of an entries tag works for both pagination and the total results of the loop, you could never display the total results if you were using pagination.

The Absolute Total Results extension adds an {absolute_total_results}  tag to the entries loop, which is the total number of entries matched, regardless of pagination. This is to workaround the fact that {total_results} only shows the number of entries shown on the current page.

It only works when using pagination.

Does what it says. This is a little gem.

When using pagination, I used to have to make a second weblog:entries loop (adding tons of overhead) just to get the total_results, but not any longer.
