Listing count at a primary category level

Good day

I have primary and sub-categories, and would like to count the listings at a primary instead of the sub-category level. The sub-categories’ count mean some listings appearing more than once under a primary category are inflating numbers.

Hi,
If I understand the requests correctly, currently there’s no way to do this, the category count function includes all the listings in subcategories. Please consider assigning listings to child categories only (those without their own subcategories), this is how it works when listings are added via the front-end form - users can’t select parent categories for listings, they have to select the most specific category in the hierarchy.
