I am trying to display the number of items currently in my cart, however not getting any result. In magento 1 we just just add the following to our phtml file and it will just echo the no. of items in cart.
This of course does not work in in magento 2 (version 2.0.2). Within my custom html file. I just need to echo just the number, just like you get when get a number on the mini cart. This is the section of code i need to put it in
<span class="cart-text"><strong>Basket:</strong> <span class="cart-count">??????</span> item(s) </span>
I need to put the number in replace of the question marks. This may be a simple question, however i am still in the early stages of my learning curve, help is greatly appreciated. Thanks
