  1. Dear Sir or Madam,

    I have buy (The, the wordpress widget “Smart Navigation Widget” and I like it very much. But one option we are looking for. How I can set the setting or change some script codes, so that the we get also a counter for the first hierarchy? At this time we have just the counter after there.

    Navigation (3)
    – Sub-Navigation 1 (1)
    – Sub-Navigation 2 (2)
    Navigation 2 (1)
    – Sub-Navigation (1)

    This feature is very important for us, I hope that you can help us


    Kind regards


    1. Hi,

      Thanks for the purchase! If you enabled this option, it will show it everywhere. But, this option depends on the data provided by WordPress, and it is working like this: count for number of posts in a category is available only if that category has posts directly connected to it. If the category has sub categories (like in your examples), and posts connected to subcategories, subcategories will have post count, but that count is not reflecting on main category since posts don’t belong directly to it.

      There is a way around it, but that defeats the whole purpose of this plugin. The way around would be to get category, than get all its child categories, and so on, and calculate all posts. But that will generate many, many additional SQL queries to get number of posts that belong to sub categories.
