a question what can be useful to know is how to use code from other pages into the current page you are working on?
e.g. I want to echo the total product count of the search query on list.phtml
Currently the product count is used in the pager/toolbar.phtml:
<?php echo $this->__('%s Item(s)', $this->getTotalNum()) ?>
Now when i try this in list.phtml it's not working. How can i get that to work?
