How to Show Number of Registered Users in WordPress with Code

You need to add the following code to your theme’s functions.php file or a site-specific plugin.

// Function to return user count
function wpb_user_count() { 
$usercount = count_users();
$result = $usercount['total_users']; 
return $result; 
} 
// Creating a shortcode to display user count
add_shortcode('user_count', 'wpb_user_count');

This code creates shortcode [user_count] which you can use in your WordPress posts, pages, or a sidebar widget to display the user count.

The function does not add any HTML formatting to the user count and simply returns the number. You may want to wrap the shortcode around HTML to use CSS or basic HTML formatting. For example:
