wp term recount

Recalculates number of posts assigned to each term.

$ wp term recount <taxonomy>...

In instances where manual updates are made to the terms assigned to posts in the database, the number of posts associated with a term can become out-of-sync with the actual number of posts.

This command runs wp_update_term_count() on the taxonomy's terms to bring the count back to the correct value.

OPTIONS

<taxonomy>...
One or more taxonomies to recalculate.

EXAMPLES

# Recount posts assigned to each categories and tags
$ wp term recount category post_tag
Success: Updated category term count.
Success: Updated post_tag term count.

# Recount all listed taxonomies
$ wp taxonomy list --field=name | xargs wp term recount
Success: Updated category term count.
Success: Updated post_tag term count.
Success: Updated nav_menu term count.
Success: Updated link_category term count.
Success: Updated post_format term count.
