I have a user-filtered list working great and Perch Runway really is amazing for enabling this powerful filtering.
But I noticed that if I use pagination, the number of items returned is confined to that number. I want pagination, but I want to inform the user the total results.
Now... I *could* perform another identical call, but without pagination. It works, but it feels like a waste of energy to do double the load on server just to get that number. Is there any way I get can the total results in just the first call? Seems like that number must be available somewhere, otherwise how would it know how many page links to render?
code: if 40 results are found and paginated into 20 per page, it only reports 20 were found when I use php count() to get that info. I'm hoping there's an easy way. I wanted to avoid too much complicated php
edit how do i format code on this forum so it's neat?
