Support » Plugin: WP Word Count » How to count words in a custom post type

  • Resolved ppehrson


    I have a classifieds site with the custom post type ad_listing (Classipress) and I want WPWC to count the words in my ads (there are 700+).

    When I enter the menu for WP Word Count, it only shows one ad in the statistics.

    It checked pages and regular posts without issue.

    There must be a bug in the custom post type code that makes it only count one ad, or am I doing something wrong?

    I found no settings or no ability to trigger a post count update.

  • Oh, also by the way, it would be nice if the plugin showed the word count for each post/custom post type within the admin-side post overview page.

    This is tough for me to diagnose without access to the ClassiPress theme. If you’d be willing to send me a copy of your database to take a look at please contact me: support [at]

    Well, it works exactly like any custom post type, so it would seem that something else is wrong. Other word counters that support custom post types work without any issue.

    I chose your plugin because I thought it supported showing word count in the post / custom type admin overview pages. It doesn’t so it’s useless to me.
