Code help - count number of cms items

Hi

I have seen this post - Adding a dynamic item that counts the number of posts in a collection

Anyone with experience of adding this to webflow? If so can you send me the code and how to get it to work? Perhaps there is a script out there somewhere, although having search extensively not found anything so far.

Thanks very much you lovely people…

so the trick could be to drag in the collection list, set it to display none, but still count the number of posts in jQuery:

CloudApp

<script>

blogNumber = $('.blog-post').length;
$('.blog-count').text(blogNumber);

</script>

hope this helps :slight_smile:

Hi, I’m trying this same code on my site to give a count of all blog posts, but I need it to be able to add multiple collection lists together. I have over 200 blog posts so I have a collection list displaying items 1-100 and then 101-200 and 201-300. is there a way to tweak this code to do this? Thank you!

Any updates on this one. Facing the same issue.

What to do to have more then 100 the max per page? is there a solution?

Is this really heavy to load? I.e. does Webflow have to pull through all the CMS information each time in order to find that number?

Nelson, please help.
How do I display the number of items if I have a nested structure. Multi-reference.
Each post goes to another CMS collection via Multi reference, then I load some other posts from there. And that’s the value I want to display. How do I do that?
I need to use array brute force, but I can’t do it.

Hi how to apply this? what exactly to do? .)
