Word count page (12 posts)

    I made this page:
    http://eyesapart.com/utilities/wordcount.html
    for my own personal use. I'd like to share something similar in my blog at:
    http://eyesapart.com/
    I couldn't find a WP plugin to do this. I don't know how to get the javascript in the header to share as a page, or even if that would work. Since not all will have JS enabled, is there a better way?

    Thanks,
    Lois

    Thanks, Michael. Those only count words in a post or category don't they? I'm looking for a utility to allow others to cut and paste words from anywhere into the counter. I suppose I could just link my page to the blog, but preferred to do it as a page using my WP theme.

    Well there's this but it's probably not what you want:

    Adding this just as FYI:
    http://gnomebox.com/index.php/projects/daily-word-count-plugin/

    there is also either a plugin or a hack to allow you to take a static page from a website and place it in your post.. ive never used it, but I have seen it before maybe that would work if it hard links to the js on your website?

    You're right, that's not what I'm needing for the page I want to make, but it sure is a neat plugin. I'm going to download it for my own use. Making material easy to read is important, especially for my blog.
    (Above refers to this:
    http://flagrantdisregard.com/wordstats/ )

    Still open to suggestions for original need, but thanks for this!

    The plugin or hack you mention, estjohn, sounds like it may work. Does anyone know where I might find it? If not I'll try to do a search later. Thanks.

    Ahh off the top of my tired head, i have no idea.. I have got to get some sleep :( I can try to look in a few hours when I get up if someone else has not found it or you haven't.

    Thanks for the 'static page' tip. That helped me know what to search for, and I found:
    http://redalt.com/downloads/ (several misc plugins here)
    http://jp.jixor.com/plugins/static-page-extended/
    http://beetle.cbtlsl.com/archives/category/wordpress-plugins/
    http://weblogtoolscollection.com/pluginblog/2005/06/09/static-jack/

    The last one especially sounds pretty cool, but I'm working a little slow right now so will take me awhile to look at all this stuff and see what is best. I'll let you know what I figure out.

    I installed the Wordstats plugin also, and it looks really good, tho haven't had time to look at it much yet either.

    Thanks Michael and Erica :-)

    I found a solution which seemed easier to me than the plugins for now, but later I want to look at them more thoroughly:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Javascript
    I followed these instructions to creat a post using the javasctipt without a plugin. See:
