Count number of search results

Hi is there a way for me to be about to count the number of search results returned from a searchJSON to pass into a variable that I can display to users.

I'm trying to do this as a way to display post counts each user has in a specific topic and this is where I am stuck.

Any help would be amazing.

So far I have been able to generate the search to pull every post a user has in a specific topic in this snippet.

Im not good with json, or vb4 for that matter, but I literally JUST finished making a product that one of the features is grabbing the count of post a user has made in a thread. So if its of any help, or gets you in the right direction take a look at this product for vb4 that is able to pull post count of a user in a thread (its what i just used as my vb3 base). hopefully it will help.

Thanks, unfortunatly with vb5 they got rid of some of the critical pieces that made the old way this was done. One of them being in the admincp/misc.php as well as changing what a "thread" is and restructuring the forum so that its easier to store in the database without bogging it down.

Thats why I'm trying to find different ways to go about solving this. I appreciate the quick response tho.

Owell you have inspired me tho I do need to get out of my comfort zone and try another strategy and get into building something more significant.

I would do that directly in a new template and do a search via the API search, getInitialResults.
Then you get an array containing all the required values. Also the number of posts.

Just look at the templates for an example:

..and use debugvardump to get dump of the array.

Edit: Your query is not taking care of any permission or closed status. The search will ...
