Category Post Count


Sometimes you need to customize post counts for individual categories. There is no built-in method for this in WordPress. So this plugin steps in and fills that gap. You can set values for each category as you wish.

Does not support custom taxonomies yet.


  • Options Page for various options
  • Support for tags
  • Support for custom taxonomies
  • Support for search results


  • When adding a category, you can specify post count for that category.
  • Category listing shows each category’s posts_per_page and posts_per_rss values.


You can use automattic install from your extensions page or you can install it manually;

  1. Unzip archive, upload category-post-count folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


What is the default value of `posts_per_page` and `posts_per_rss`?

If you didn’t change it after installing WordPress, it has to be 10. It can be changed from Settings > Reading page of your Admin area.

Does it have to be same values for posts and feeds?

You can use different values. You can even left it empty to use default value of your blog.
