How To Show All Subscriber Counts In WordPress

Do you want all of your subscription counts to be visible in WordPress?

Displaying your total number of followers on your WordPress blog is a simple approach to increasing your social proof and authority.

We’ll teach you how to expand your audience in WordPress by displaying all of your subscriber figures.

Why Display Your WordPress Subscriber Count?

A subscriber count is the total number of persons who have signed up for a service or platform. Popular social media platforms frequently display subscriber or following counts.

Including your subscription figures in WordPress is a type of social proof.

If consumers notice that you have a large number of followers or subscribers, they are more likely to regard your website as an authority in your blogging topic.

You can display various subscriber counts on your sites, such as email newsletter subscribers, membership site users, social network followers, and more.

Let’s look at how to show all of your subscriber figures in WordPress.

Using a WordPress plugin to display several social media follower numbers

You can use this method to display multiple social media follower counts on your WordPress website at the same time. If you have a large social media following across multiple networks, this can be a great way to demonstrate your authority.

We’ll use the Ultimate Social Icons plugin to accomplish this. It works with over 200 platforms and allows you to simply display subscriber counts for numerous networks at the same time.

The first step is to install and activate the plugin. For more information, visit our step-by-step guide to installing a WordPress plugin.

After activation, your WordPress admin panel will have a new menu item called ‘Ultimate Social Media Icons.’

You must click here to access the plugin options.

Then, in the ‘Which icons do you want to show on your site?’ drop down, select the social icons you wish to display and tick the box.

Then, select ‘What do you want the icons to do?’ from the drop-down menu. You can configure the activities that visitors can take when they engage with your symbols here.

For example, if you chose Facebook, you can allow users to like your page, visit your page, and more.

Then, expand the ‘Where shall they be displayed?’ section by clicking.

You’ll have several possibilities, such as putting them in a widget, having them hover over your site, utilizing a shortcode, and more.

Check the ‘Place via shortcode’ box if you want to be able to place the subscriber count anywhere on your site.

This generates a shortcode that you may use on your WordPress site.

Using WordPress to display specific social media follower numbers

Individual social media follower counts for Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter are displayed using this manner.

This is a terrific option if you’re really active and have a significant following on a single social media network.

In WordPress, show the number of Facebook followers you have.

If you have a huge Facebook following, you may easily display this number on your website.

You will use the Facebook page plugin to accomplish this. These function similarly to conventional WordPress plugins but were developed by Facebook.

To begin, go to the Meta for Developers page and generate your plugin embed code. You’ll get a list of all the Facebook plugins that can be added to your website.

Choose ‘Page Plugin’ from the left-hand sidebar.

Enter the URL of your Facebook page next. Then, tell Facebook what material it should display on your website.

In addition to your follower count, you can display your timeline, events, or messages.

If you wish to show several sorts of content, simply separate each value with a comma. For example, if you wanted to see your timeline as well as forthcoming events, you’d type ‘timeline, events’.

The live preview will automatically update so you can experiment with the settings to determine what works best for you. You can also modify your Facebook plugin’s width and height.

If you wish to make your Facebook material smaller, tick the ‘Use Small Header’ box. By ticking the ‘Hide Cover Photo’ box, you can totally delete the Facebook cover photo.

When you’re satisfied with what you see in the preview, click the ‘Get Code’ button. This brings up a popup with all of the possible embed codes.

Displaying the number of subscribers to your email list in WordPress

Displaying your email subscriber count can be used to entice readers to join your email list. Displaying the subscriber count on your site can be wonderful social proof if you have a large email list.

We’ll be using Constant Contact, but the processes will be similar if you’re using HubSpot, Drip, Sendinblue, or another email marketing service.

Log in to your account first, then click the ‘Contacts’ tab, followed by the smaller ‘Contacts’ menu choice.

This will display your total number of email subscribers. Take note of this number because you will be adding it to your website.

Although this method isn’t automated, you can quickly update your subscriber counts by entering into your email marketing provider and double-checking that your numbers are still correct.

You can make updating this a monthly or quarterly chore.

WordPress displays the total number of registered users.

Some websites allow visitors to register in order to remark, post, and do other actions on the site.

Other sites, such as membership sites, online courses, WordPress forums, and others, permit user registration during sign-up.

If you have a significant number of registered users, you may wish to show this figure to promote more sign-ups.

This solution necessitates the addition of code to your WordPress site. If you’ve never done this before, check out our guide to pasting web snippets into WordPress.

Then, in your functions.php file, a site-specific plugin, or by using a code snippets plugin, add the following code snippet.

// Function to return user count
function wpb_user_count() {
$usercount = count_users();
$result = $usercount['total_users'];
return $result;
// Adding a shortcode to display the number of users

add_shortcode('user_count', 'wpb_user_count');

This code snippet generates a shortcode that you can use to display the number of registered users on your WordPress site.

You must copy the following shortcode:

[user count]

Then, navigate to the page, post, or widget area where you want the user count to appear.

We’ll teach you how to add it to a widget-ready region of your site in this example. However, the methods are the same for every other region of your website.

Simply navigate to Appearance » Widgets, click the ‘Plus’ add block icon, and then search for and choose the ‘Custom HTML’ block.

navigate to Appearance

Remember that the shortcode only displays the number of registered users. If no context is provided, this is essentially a random integer.

It’s a good idea to provide some supporting language to ensure visitors understand that is your subscriber count. You can, for example, add the HTML formatting shown below.

<p>There are <strong>[user_count]</strong> awesome people subscribed to this blog!</p>

When you’re done customizing, click the ‘Update’ button to save your changes.

When you're done customizing

You may now browse your site and see your registered user count in real time.
