Went through the conf and the Drupalsite > Content page but couldn't find any where to number the list (or at least to get a nubmer of all contents of all entities and types - including Views, Panels, Webforms, ETC).

Would thank you for showing a simple way for numbering this list \ get a content-total number.

Here is the picture of my natural display of the content page... Thanks, Ben.

  • What would the numbers represent exactly (bearing in mind you can filter that list)? One option would probably be Admin Views, it'll convert that page to a View which you can manipulate to provide totals/numbering etc – Clive Jun 22 '15 at 15:59
  • The number of items in relation to the filtering... Can you think of a lighter option than a module (Does the module makes everything automatic?). – user16289 Jun 22 '15 at 16:24

Looks like you might be looking for number of nodes by content type (among other things). If that's the case then you may want to consider the Charts module. It comes with a sample view that gives you both a tabular overview and a chart of these numbers.

The (accepted) answer to the question Views and node count for taxonomy terms contains another (views) based example.

The question Count of nodes by type contains some code snippets that may help to write your custom module to calculate these counts.

If you don't want to install/enable the Charts module permanently, you may want to temporarely enable it to (eg) look at the view for the tabular format display, and then create a clone of that view to perfectly fit your needs (and then uninstall the Charts module again). Of course the "Views" module is yet another module. But it's rare to find a site that does not use the views module, so that's maybe an acceptable compromise to consider (you might have Views available already)?

  • Is there any non-modular way (maybe even adding something in the PHP template of a relevant core module? – user16289 Jun 22 '15 at 16:25
  • I do have views installed and use it for several purposes... Is there maybe a simpler way even than views-based modules? Even a simple content pieces counter (with an option to filter entities\publish mode) could do the trick, I just don't want to counter manually. – user16289 Jun 22 '15 at 17:10
