Dashboard Wordcount

Description

Updates the Dashboard’s At a Glance widget to show the total word count of all the published posts in this WordPress website (and average word count per post). Also shows the age of the website (time since the oldest post). Uses the default dashboard icons and styling, so it’s completely seamless. Just more information for you.

Languages: English, Spanish and Portuguese

Special thanks to Apasionados for implementing the translation feature for the plugin and including Spanish translation files.

Screenshots

  • You can see the total word count of the published posts in the site and the average words per post. Also the current human readable age of the website and the date of the oldest post. Now it's also shown the total words in comments, and you can hover the mouse above that to know how many words you've written in the comments.

Reviews

Found it!

Wonderful. I was looking for this feature (count all words in a wordpress blog / total wordcount) for a long time. Thank you very much.

Just to make sure: the Plugin counts all types of posts, including pages?
Seems so. I just got 6 posts – 88 pages – 32k Words.
