This will become even less of a problem as the total number increases.

But I wonder whether topics which are *initially* unlisted similarly count towards the category total? That could be annoying if embedded Discourse comments are enabled with the initially-unlisted setting (which could lead to hundreds of unlisted topics overnight).

I rebuilt the app to install a plugin, and this problem rectified itself. The total number of topics in the category (shown in at least two places) is now the total number of *listed* topics. This must be the intended result and maybe what happens when topics are initially created unlisted.

I imagine it just needs some short code to ensure that unlisting a topic reduces the count by 1.

That’s not the intent – unlisted topics are still topics, they just can’t be accessed unless you have the URL or a link to the topic.

Thanks for getting back to me.

I am happy now that my unlisted topics are not now counted towards the total number of topics.

But it sounds like they should be!
