Feature Proposal: Add number of topics variable to Formatted Search

Motivation

The AddFooterParameterToSEARCH allows people to specify a custom footer. WIBNI you can specify the number of topics found?

Description and Documentation

In FormattedSearch, add this to format parameter table:

$ntopics Number of topics found in current web. This is the current topic count, not the total number of topics
$nhits Number of hits if multiple="on". Cumulative across all topics in current web. Identical to $ntopics unless multiple="on"

Add this to footer parameter table:

$ntopics Number of topics found in current web
$nhits Number of hits if multiple="on". Cumulative across all topics in current web. Identical to $ntopics unless multiple="on"

Impact

Implementation

The $ntopics perl variable already exists in TWiki::Search. A new $nhits needs to be introduced for the number of hits.

This is tracked in TWikibug:Item6184
