Would it be possible for BW Category Count to enable a {category_count} and {category_total_results} variables to the {exp:channel:entries} loop for use in the {categories} tag pair?

{exp:channel:entries channel="channel_name" dynamic="off"}
            {categories show_group = "1"}
                <!-- Show only the Last Category -->
                {if category_count == category_total_results}


This would allow BW Category Count to be used to filter how many categories are output, based on the results returned.

Keep up the great work!

    Hi Ryan,

    Sorry it took forever to respond, but as it turns out Tender has a spam-box and your message ended up in it. Never knew it existed until just now...

    Adding a {category_count} variable to the categories loop will cause a lot of confusion, since the main aim for this addon is to add a {category_count} tag that holds the number of categories this entry is assigned to.

    Using a different add-on for this would be beter, but I'm not sure if one exists.
