Sharepoint 2013: Show refiner counts in the Refinement Webpart

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

When using the Refinement Webpart in Sharepoint 2013 this will by default not show counts for the refiners.


There is an easy way to enable the counts by editing the Display Templates for the Refinement Webpart.

  • Map a drive to <your site collection>/_catalogs/masterpage e.g http://myserver/sites/home/_catalogs/masterpage
  • Navigate to the Display Templates folder
  • Then navigate to the Filters folder
  • Open the file Filter_Default.html in your favorite HTML Editor E.g. Notepad++
  • Change the ShowCounts value to true. You will find ShowCounts on line 25
  • Save and close the file.
  • Repeat this for the Filter_MultiValue.html file. The Filter_Default.html file is used for standard refiners while the Filter_Multivalue.html file is used for multivalue refiners.

That’s it, refresh your page and the refiners should now show a count value for each refiner.
