Yeah the calculation doesn't work for subcategories, one reason is we don't have a recursive function to get all children and calculate the counts also we don't have a list of children category ids per category so without adding that this is difficult to achieve.
Apologies if it's something that I've overlooked, but is it possible to recount posts for users?
We've got a few members complaining on our forum who seem to have an incorrect post count showing in their profile.

Also, is there any reason why
counts.postsis now out for sync only some users, is it now decrepated?
NodeBB uses user.postcount, is count.posts coming from a plugin?
@baris I noticed that persona theme (which our theme was originally based on) now uses that on the profile page rather than postcount, I thought something had changed.

user.postcounton the other hand is the total number of posts made by the user in all categories.
Ah right, I seem to have the opposite on my site,
user.postcountshows less than
But not to worry, now that I understand the differences.
