The detail Shortcode Parameter

Since Version 1.13

When the detail parameter is defined when using the [gravityview] shortcode, the shortcode will output information about the current View. It must be used inside a View's Custom Content field to display accurate information.

Possible Values

  • [gravityview detail="total_entries"] The total number of entries that are in the View. If displaying search results, the number of matched entries. (100 in the below example)
  • [gravityview detail="first_entry"] (26 in the below example)
  • [gravityview detail="last_entry"] (50 in the below example)
  • [gravityview detail="page_size"] The number of entries that are visible on a single page. If all entries are displayed, then the value will be the same as total_entries (25 entries were displayed in the below example)


Example: a View that is showing entries 26-50 of 100 entries.

If you add this to a Custom Content widget:

<p>There are [gravityview detail="total_entries"] entries that match your search.</p>

It will display the following on a View with 100 entries:

<p>There are 100 entries that match your search.</p>
