Word Count plugin
#1
Thumbs Up 
I write a LOT in forums. I want to know how many words I've written without copying and pasting the post into some other place over and over. 

Does anyone know of a plugin that adds a word count to the posting/editor window? Or has a button we click for word count?

If not, how hard would that be to make?

Thank you for your thoughts on this.

You could try the Character Count plugin.
Beside the typed and remaining characters, in the version for MyBB 1.8 it shows a simple word count too below the editor.

Thanks, doylecc! I will try it.

Wow, doylecc!
That works perfectly! Thank you!

I love that it's a mouseover so it's not distracting at all. Well done!

I suggest a word count extension that might help your writing if you use Chrome
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detai...hfddflblcm
or this add-on if you use Firefox
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox...count-tool


if you want a quick & reliable solution, you can go to its web version:
Word Count Tools or Character Count Tool

Wow, thank you, harryngh!
I never would have thought this would be an extension. 



What great resources. 
I already installed the extensions and look forward to using them.

I finally settled on a Chrome extension called Word Count, which works fine for most things on the web. I also have a doylecc's forum plugin called Character Count, which is automatic in the forum. He has it on his site, with some other interesting-looking plugins: http://mybbplugins.de.vu/. \

I really like Character Count a lot. It works perfectly and it's pretty much seamless. . 

Thanks doylecc and everyone for helping with this!
