  • How to Add total members to “Right Now” dashboard widget


    Great little snippet that will display the total number of members within the Right now dashboard widget. Just add this to the functions.php of your wordpress theme and you are ready to go.

    ( example screenshot ) ( click code to copy )

    wordpress snippet : PHP

    function dashboard_wps_user_count() {
        global $wpdb;
        $users = $wpdb->get_var("SELECT COUNT(ID) FROM $wpdb->users");
           <tr class="first">
              <td class="first b b_pages"><a href="users.php"><? echo $users; ?></a></td>
              <td class="t pages"><a href="users.php">Members</a></td>
    add_action( 'right_now_content_table_end', 'dashboard_wps_user_count');

    ( WordPress codex functions, hooks, in this snippet. )

    This seems to have a number of issues Kevin. For those that may not know the <?} will throw an error. Also, "Members" on the dashboard doesn't show a count.

    • What issues are you having with the snippet?
