Ok, so right now I can easily echo the number of posts that has a specific meta_key and meta_value:

$query = new WP_Query( 
    array( 
        'meta_key' => 'usp-custom-1', 
        'meta_value' => get_permalink() 
    ) 
); 
echo $query->found_posts;

I'm trying to do something similar except for echoing the number of users that has a specific user_meta data.

I'm trying this:

$query = new WP_User_Query( 
    array(  
        'meta_key' => 'cash_out_status',  
        'meta_value' => 'pending' 
    ) 
); 
echo $query->found_users;

But the above doesn't display anything.

I guess I'm making a mistake somewhere in the code.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

  • did you try adding 'meta_compare' => '=', to your array?

We have the public properties:

WP_Query->found_posts
WP_Comment_Query->found_comments
WP_Network_Query->found_networks
WP_Site_Query->found_sites

but then comes this private property (that's also made public via magic getter):

WP_User_Query::$total_users

but not found_users as expected, so the confusion is natural :-)

Look into the public get_total() method and the count_total bool attribute (true by default) in the docs.

  • Thanks! Changing my code from $query->found_users to $query->get_total() did the job! Thanks again for your time and effort, birgire!
