    I've had this issue since 3.5 but was hoping it would be resolved in the new version. after upgrading and having the same problem, it looks like this is probably my fault!

    on my music page: http://www.selarom.com/music/default.aspx I have a categories list on the right set to the Music generic content provider. on the control panel back end, the categories list shows the correct count of 19... however on the page linked above, it shows 37... if you click the category, you will see the correct number of items (19 paged into 4 pages) but the count is still incorrect...

    any ideas? thanks!

    Hello Josh,

    We would recommend you use the new Categories Tree control instead of the obsolete Categories List. Do let us know if the problem still persists after the upgrade.

    I am using the Categories user Control for an Events List... per this thread and my own testing the categories control count of the items is wrong in the latest version 3.6 sp2.  I added the tree view version and the count is correct.  This wouldn't be a big deal except my category list needs to have a horizontal orientation instead of a vertical one.  Is there any work around to correct the item count for the standard category control?  It is so much easier to style than the tree view version. 

    Thanks in advance.

    Wanted to add to my last post that I also am using the filter feature to limit category results to those that match the active events. My goal being to show only categories and counts of items that are active and being displayed in the list of events.  The filter in the tree view appear to only allow us to specify which categories we want included not filter or limit by Event_Start date etc... as does the filter with the standard category control.  Again this is an addition to my prior post.

    Thanks again!

    Hello Brook,

    There are several things you might check:
    1. Customizing the RadTreeView appearance at the RadControls documentation.
    2. Creating a control adapter for the RadTreeView, so it renders in the way you want it.
    3. Create a custom user control using the Sitefinity APIs. This way you would have a full controls over the output and the control representation.

    As for the filtering, you can place the filter in the EventsView control itself. This way, the CategoryTree control will simply append the filter to it, rather to remove it (and show all items).

    Let me know if I am missing something.

    Sincerely yours,
    Georgi

    Is there any way to get the standard categories control to display the correct item counts?

    Hello Brook,

    Categories List control cashes for 24 hours and our suggestion is using Categories Tree control.

    Best wishes,
