Default Total Cart Count of Items

Does anyone know how to get the total items in the cart?

I have tried everything and the result is always 0
After what seemed like many hours, I finally solved my issue.

For those wanting to use this, here is what I did:

In my model I created a function taking information from the $_SESSION['cart']
function allCartItems() {
	$sessioncart = $_SESSION['cart'];/* store multi-dimensional array of shopping cart */
	$items = array();

	/* save each array key as a value, in our case we want just the total count of each item in the cart */
	foreach($sessioncart as $cartitems) {
		$items[] = $cartitems['count'];
	$total = 0; /* reset variable total */

	/* add together each item row's total item count */
	foreach (array_filter($items) as $value) {
		$total += $value;

	/* display total items in the shopping cart */
	echo $total;
Then in the View where you want the result displayed, call the function
