[resolved] Total number of words in a post (7 posts)

    I am looking for a plugin that will give me the total number of words in a single post. I have found plugins that will give me the total number of posts, the total number of words in ALL posts, but can't seem to find one for the total number of words in a single post.

    Can someone point me in the right direction for this?

    Hmm. The first plugin didn't work either. I mean, it works, but it's still giving me the total words for all posts and I just want the total number of words in a single post.

    I'm trying to put the code in my single.php page to pull up the total number of words for each individual post. Unless I'm missing something, there's no way to do that with this plugin. I'm stumped.

    Thanks! That one seems to be working but the word count seems to be a bit off and I'm not sure why. I wonder if it counts the words in the title too and any other words on the page, or just the words in the actual post content?

    looking at the plugin, its just counting words in the post, the title of the post isnt included in the field its checking.

    I must not be able to count then. It's working and that's good enough for me. Thanks for the help! I've looked all afternoon for a plugin to do this one simple thing.
