How to list out your WordPress tags with a post count for each

26 December 2018

Working on this site's HTML sitemap recently, I wanted a way of listing out all my WordPress tags (as links) with a post count for each. Something like this:

List of WordPress tags

This isn't something I was willing to create manually because then I would need to update it every time I published a new post. After a bit of Googling I found a useful snippet of php on the Mobilize Cloud website that took me most of the way there - it listed out all tags as links, but without a post count.

All it took was a slight tweak to echo the count field for the $tag variable (within brackets). The final code is below and you can see it in action on the HTML sitemap.

And this can also be adjusted to list categories instead...
