I was looking inside the code for Opencart and I saw that Settings -> Options -> Product count was disable, but in fact in the source code on the website, it spanned the product count, but it was actually put with display none. The actual setting is useless because it is pushing the DB the same as with display on.

From what I've learned from other platforms that if I disable a function, it does not use it anymore or query it. It so happens that Opencart does not disable it, it hides it.

So, any help within the files?

nope, if the setting is to not do the product count, it does not do the product count.
Well, it does but only for the pagination not for the category display.

Code: Select all

				$data['categories'][] = array(
					'name' => $result['name'] . ($this->config->get('config_product_count') ? ' (' . $this->model_catalog_product->getTotalProducts($filter_data) . ')' : ''),
					'href' => $this->url->link('product/category', 'path=' . $this->request->get['path'] . '_' . $result['category_id'] . $url)

Hey @inowgsmro
No please check controller file either category or filter or menu in catalogue section

The total count model function is always called if the product count setting is enabled

($this->config->get('config_product_count') ? ' (' . $this->model_catalog_product->getTotalProducts($filter_data) . ')' : '')

I think you misunderstood that setting this is for only hide the count of products besides the category in small brackets.
So that if the category has a large number of products so it does not slow down the page
