#17027 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Allow WP_Query to return just the count

Currently, you can't ask just for the total number of posts for a certain query.

You have to execute that query and then retrieve the total using SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS.

Maybe a 'fields' => 'count' option would do it.

Example where this is needed in Core: #17019
