Are you looking for a way to display total number of published posts on your blog? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to display number of posts
wp_count_posts in WordPress.
All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s template file where you want to show the total post count or in a site-specific plugin:
<? $published_posts = wp_count_posts()->publish; echo $published_posts; ?>
Note: If this is your first time adding code snippets in WordPress, then please refer to our guide on how to properly add code snippets in WordPress, so you don’t accidentally break your site.
