[pmwiki-users] Any way to get page counts with breaks based on a PTV?

I've added this for 2.2.121. There will be a new pseudovariable 
{$$EachCount} similar to {$$PageGroupCount} that will contain the number 
of pages in the current "each" loop.

I'm not sure if the name {$$EachCount} is good, could be 
{$$CurrentLoopCount} or something else, if anyone has ideas, before we 
release it.

To test this, please get the prerelease as a ZIP file from the ChangeLog 
page, or from Subversion (only scripts/pagelist.php is updated for 

So in your template you can use {$$EachCount}:

(:template last "{=$:department}":)
{=$:department} contains {$$EachCount} pages.

See for example, Cookbook.B* pages, ordered by maintainer:


If you use (:template last "{=$:department}":) you need to also order 
the pagelist by $:department, like you did.
