[plugin] [ORPHAN] klp_word_count - counts the words in the body of a post

This is a rewrite of a plugin originally written by ramanan”> and discussed here

I’ve made it more accurate so it only counts the actual words and not html tags or entities.

It is very accurate for my site, as compared to counting by hand or using wc. But there may be a few edge cases that it doesn’t cover properly.

If you have a use for such a thing get the plugin.

To use it just put <txp:klp_word_count /> in an article form template and it should print the right thing.

Let me know what you think.

I’m very new to php, so there may be better ways of doing this that I’m not aware of, I would love to hear them.

Excellent. I think I’ll make the jump. When I wrote my plugin it was done quite quickly in response to a query. You seem to have put a lot more thought into this one.

Hehe, i hate to admit it, but I probably went through about 4 or 5 revisions, and quite a few hours before I got it to this version.

Learned some php and a lot more about textpattern though.

Thanks a lot of the inspiration.

When I view the txt file, all I get is a bunch of strange letters…
Is that what it should look like? It seems wrong to me, since everything is just in one long row of random letters… Help me… I want a word count even if im stupid…

Irganox -

That’s the actual plugin itself. Go to Admin>Plugins, and paste that file into the plugin box, and click install. If that doesn’t work, upload the plugin, and install.

To activate, click on the “No” under the “Active” column. That will make it so TXP will parse your tags.

For those of you feeling adventurous, this is a perfect candidate for utilizing the Sparkline PHP Graphing Library. An explanation of Sparklines can be found on Edward Tufte’s website
