Re: smd_article_stats: Article stats to count words 'n stuff

Thanks Stef,

The plugin worked like a charm. No other plugin was needed

Re: smd_article_stats: Article stats to count words 'n stuff

Hello Stef, ‘cause I’m using Claire’s Swap Body Excerpt your plugin show the number of words in the “wrong” way (first the body words and then the excerpt words).
So, I know, it’s not your fault… hehehe… :P but, can you add a function to swap the counters?

EDIT: didn’t notice the Advanced Prefs: it’s already possible!

The best would be an auto-check if Claire’s plugin is activated and perform as a result… ;)-

… and even the possibility to localize the plugin (“word/s” => “parola/e” in Italian) even in the interface (“Article Stats” => “Statistiche”)

Thank you!!!

Re: smd_article_stats: Article stats to count words 'n stuff

If there is already a thread for this, the forum is having hella hard time finding it. If so, please point me accordingly and I’ll clean up.

But… I have it installed in 4.7dev and have the front-side tag set like this at top of the article in the same p as the post date:

<txp:smd_article_stats item="body, excerpt" type="word" label="words: " labeltag="b" />

The back-end “Article stats” say, probably accurately: 2227 words ( 2107 / 120 )
But the front-side output says, words: 1991119.

I’m guessing that should be the sum of 1,991 + 119 (the desire) but isn’t getting processed, and the numbers are off.

Franky, I don’t care if the counts are off by a few words, but that’s more than a few. And the summation is troubled.

Stef’s response from a different thread soon to be deleted:

You might want a break=" + " attribute to separate the items :-)

As for the disparity in counts, well, it’s tricky. I think the plugin counts the body text typed on the admin side, which may include tags and headings and Textile codes and stuff. But on the public site, it only counts the rendered HTML, minus tags. So depending how much markup you use there may be some differences. A few hundred words seems a lot, though!

EDIT: I just found an article with over 9K words in it and the difference between public and admin counts was 10 words – that accounted for the ‘h2.’ tags in the admin side body text. Do you have a lot of Textile markup in your article body?

EDIT 2: The plugin doesn’t (currently) do sums. But if you’re running 4.7 you could maybe find a way to run the output through <txp:evaluate> to do the maths.

Thanks!

Not currently, it doesn’t do sums. I could probably add that – and it needs an overhaul for the changes in 4.7 prefs anyway so it’s a good time to add it.

In the meantime can you run it or any part of the tag through the evaluate tag:

<b>Words:</b> <txp:evaluate query='<txp:smd_article_stats item="body, excerpt" break="+" />' />

?

Wundibar!

Never used the evaluate tag before. Works as prescribed. Thanks, maestro!

Re: smd_article_stats: Article stats to count words 'n stuff

Oh, in case you missed it above, I have a bunch of endnotes/annotations with some rather complex markup that was causing the wide count difference in the body. I’d overlooked that.

Re: smd_article_stats: Article stats to count words 'n stuff

Stef, I forgot to mention…

In the admin-side I have the “Article stats” under the excerpt box, which is where I like it for now (who knows when the unlimited custom fields utopia arrives). But I notice that when set as the default, “Above Sort and display”, there’s no output. Or it’s probably hidden under the Save box that’s fixed in that position in Hive admin theme. Just to mention it.

Good point. Yeah, either the DOM hooks have changed or it’s obscured. I’ll fix that in the 4.7 release, thanks.

Good memory :-) I’ll fix that, honest.
