Return the total member count in your BP instance.


Since BuddyBoss 1.0.0, members directory lists all members, even if they have never been active. So, this function also uses bp_core_get_total_member_count, again.

Since BuddyPress 1.6, this function has used bp_core_get_active_member_count(), which counts non-spam, non-deleted users who have last_activity. This value will correctly match the total member count number used for pagination on member directories.

Before BuddyPress 1.6, this function used bp_core_get_total_member_count(), which did not take into account last_activity, and thus often resulted in higher counts than shown by member directory pagination.


(int) Member count.
