Display Search Term and Result Count in WordPress


In this tutorial we will share how you can add a simple function on your search page which will display the search term and the number of results. This feature was a special request by one of our user via email. If you want us to cover a topic, then feel free to make a suggestion.

Open your search.php file in your template folder and add the following code:

<h2>Search Result for <?php /* Search Count */ $allsearch = &new WP_Query(“s=$s&showposts=-1″); $key = wp_specialchars($s, 1); $count = $allsearch->post_count; _e(”); _e(‘<span class=”search-terms”>’); echo $key; _e(‘</span>’); _e(‘ &mdash; ‘); echo $count . ‘ ‘; _e(‘articles’); wp_reset_query(); ?></h2>

The code above will display something like this:

Search Result for twitter — 15 articles

This is just one of the cool things that you can do for your Search Page when customizing it.
