Thanks Patrick. Loaded into my dev copy and will be distributed next time I do a plugin sweep. I don’t know if the trailing spaces will survive the import process as I think strings are trimmed. Certainly Plugin Composer trims them when they are edited.

May I suggest you to add this feature? “Estimated reading time”

Great idea. I already have a public-facing reading time on my blog so it makes sense to fold this into the plugin.

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

Bug report:

If the site preferences specifies that article excerpts are disabled, the live word count on the Write page stops working. That’s because the JavaScript tries to find the #excerpt HTML element and doesn’t find it leading to a silent JavaScript error.

Ah, good catch thanks. For now if you want it to start working again just visit the prefs and remove the ‘#excerpt’ entry from the Word count fields and DOM selectors. That should stop it looking for the missing selector.

Hi Mister Stef ;)

SEO guru give that advice: “Your URL’s length must to be less than 90 characters”
Maybe you could add a new counter based on the title.

Best regards,


Patrick.

You can do that yourself. Visit Admin->(Advanced) Prefs and find Article Stats. In the Word count fields and DOM selectors option, add Title -> #title as one of the (comma-separated) items. Job done.

Maybe I’m being dim, but didn’t he want to count the number of characters in the title, not the number of words?

Cool, Stef. It count the number of words into the title (not the number of characters into the “Title_url” + protocol + domain name):

Haha, I need my eyes or brain tested. You’re right. Sorry for being a dumbass. Suppose I could add a similar system for counting characters so you could somehow choose which bits you want displayed. Leave it with me and I’ll see if I can come up with anything.

I don’t think counting the domain + protocol + title is very practical though. I mean, it’d have to add up the site_url pref, guess the protocol (one character possible drift), figure out how long the intermediate parts are depending on your permlink scheme and, if necessary, work out how long the section is (remember section names are language dependent). There’s a lot of scope for error. Best advice: tell authors to use common sense and keep article titles short enough :-)

Cool Stef :)

Ok for the “scheme URI” counting: I understand.
Tks for your reply.

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

I was wondering if this plugin could help me with this.

Yes. It has a public tag that can output the word counts from a single article so all you have to do is put it inside a list-building tag like <txp:article> (on a landing page), or <txp:article_custom>. Then you can use something like adi_calc (or roll your own txp:variable addition system) to total the words in the selected field thrown out by smd_article_stats.
