Support » Plugins » add word count in a wp_editor

  • Hello, I use this function to add a character count to wp_editor but doesn’t work. If I use it on the excepert editor with #excerpt instead of #descrizione_serivizio_texta every works fine but if I use in a wp_editor with id=”descrizione_serivizio_texta” I see the count but it doesn’t update while wirting.

    add_action( 'admin_print_footer_scripts', 'check_textarea_length_servizio_riassunto' );		
        function check_textarea_length_servizio_riassunto() {
         ?>
        	<script type="text/javascript">
        		jQuery( document ).ready( function($) {
        			$('#descrizione_serivizio_texta').on('keyup', function () {
        				var char_count = $(this).val().length;
            // Update the character count on every key up
            $('#excerpt-wc span.ch').text(char_count);
        		}).after('<p id="excerpt-wc">NUMERO DI CARATTERI: <span class="ch">0</span></p>');
        		
        			// Set the initial symbol count on page load
          var char_count = $('#descrizione_serivizio_texta').val().length;
        		$('#excerpt-wc span.ch').text(char_count);
        });
        	</script>
        	<?php
        }
    

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks
