I want to display the total number of currently found/selected above/inside the layered navigation. In the templates catalog/layer/view.phtml or catalog/layer/state.phtml

I tried:

/* @var Mage_Catalog_Model_Category $_category */
$_category = Mage::registry('current_category');

And a few other functions that are in the class but none seem to give the number I need. Anyone who can help me out?

Try to get

$select = clone Mage::getSingleton('catalog/layer')->getProductCollection()->getSelect();

Then you can modify the $select object to get COUNT() and fetch it.

Note, you have the right collection with all filters applied after the render of catalog/layer/view block.

You need to use clone, as later magento will use the same collection for pager and product list.

    I found Mage::getSingleton('catalog/layer')->getProductCollection()->getSize() which returns a int of the products. Do I still need to clone? It doesn't look like it affects anything.

  • If it works fine and does not affects the product listing it's OK.
