Number of Classifieds from a category

Hi all,

1. I want to know if it is possible to add near the category, the number of classifieds from that category. It is frustrating to navigate in all categories to find a certain classified.

2. Is there a shortcode to display the last 10 or 20 classifieds?

3. Can you direct me to a showcase of websites to see how this plugin was used at its full possibilites?

The same questions are for the Directory plugin whom I use on the same website.

Best regards,

Daniela
