On taxonomy list, Count for distinct post types?
One of my several custom taxonomies is called “Source”.
And I have multiple post types, including “Articles”.
On the term-list page for “Sources” (edit-tags.php?taxonomy=source), I have the Count column.
However, this column has confused me no end over the last week.
For one term in question, I see a Count of 2,003. Yet I know there are only 2,000 “articles”.
I have been conversing with the maker of another plugin which I felt was at fault.
But now I think the reason is that there are three other post objects, in another post type, “Events”, which are also linked to the term I am talking about…
Essentially, the Count column seems to add up the count of all post objects related to this term, am I right?
That shouldn’t really expected, not least because the Source taxonomy list is loaded by clicking the “Source” link within the “Articles” menu (edit-tags.php?taxonomy=source&post_type=article).
What I would expect to happen is either or both or the following…
1. The context is respected (ie. if edit-tags.php?taxonomy=source&post_type=article was clicked, make the Count correspond to “article” – not sure WordPress works this way)
2. ACP offers the ability to add a more granular Count, for a specified post object. This way, I could add Count columns for multiple posts which are attached to this taxonomy.
Does any of this exist?
