Frontend document count

Hello again,

On the Category List, is it possible to show in brackets next to each category the number of documents in there? (same for sub-categories)

This saves going into each one only to find it empty if there are no docs yet.

Many thanks.

Hi Alan, DOCman 2 no longer has the ability to show the total amount of documents on the frontend. Calculating those is a very expensive and slow operation as we now need to take the category and document permissions into account so we opted to leave this out for the moment.

I have created a ticket for our developers to get their feedback if this is still possible and what the implications would be. I will get back to you once I have more feedback.
