1.5 NativeHow many times we find ourselves writing an article and we would like to know the number of words. Well this is a Joomla plugin adding a button to the end of the editor. Press to see how many words you wrote so far.

The html tags are stripped before the counting.

Important Note:

  • The plugin works both in back and front-end editing, but only when using tinyMCE editor.
  • The algorithm counts the 'spaces', therefore you might notice mistake if you have more spaces. It will be improved in future versions.


Steps to install are those of a normal Joomla plugin installation.

  1. Download the plugin (see below link)
  2. Upload and install from joomla backend by choosing editors-xtd type.
  3. Enable from Plugin Manager by choosing Plugin Enable
  4. That's it!!!
