Feature Proposal: Add varaible to FormattedSearch that returns number of topics found

If you're looking for the discussion about FormattedSearch returning the count of a regex search, see FormattedSearchRegexCountVariable.


For FacetedNavigation, it would be very helpful to list simply the number of topics found from a search.

Description and Documentation

Since the $count(regex) syntax is already defined by FormattedSearchRegexCountVariable (see details of feature as implemented here), I would propose using simply $count (without parenthesis or regex) to return the count of topics found.


Providing a list of categories with the number found of each. Granted, this would require a nested search.

Impact and Available Solutions

A useful enhancement. One issue might be timing/performance. The total number of topics might not be known until the end of the search.
