#31677 reopened defect (bug)

count_user_posts is not working in wordpress 4.1

count_user_posts have two parameters.

  1. User ID
  2. Post Type.

There is a note in codex - Note : Since 4.1 it supports post types.

But when I am using this function in my recent wordpress version i.e. 4.1 it is not giving me proper output.

stark.manish - Can you please give additional details? Exactly how are you calling count_user_posts()? What do you expect to get as a return value? And what are you in fact getting?

I am having problems too. The function is accepting a second parameter, but it seems to ignore it. I am calling the function as follows:

echo count_user_posts($author_id, $post_type);

This always results in the amount of posts for the default post type being returned, instead of the actual count for the supplied post type.

I am using Wordpress 4.8

@jberculo ,@SergeyBiryukov,

echo count_user_posts($author_id, $post_type);

Works for me, I tested with echo count_user_posts('1', 'product');
it gave me perfect count for post type product. Please check for the same and let me know if i am missing.
