[resolved] Counts and limits, but keeps it secret. (2 posts)

    I installed GCCL on a site, the character count box (characters available) is displayed, and the limit is enforced, but the count in the box never changes.

    With some effort I figured out how to hack comment-template.php to get the name in the form. This is from the page source:

    <form action="http://www.sldforum.com/wp-comments-post.php" method="post" name="commentform" id="commentform">

    The plugin seems to have made the changes to the textarea as well:

    <textarea onkeydown="gcllCounter(this)" onkeyup="gcllCounter(this)" id="comment" name="comment" cols="45" rows="8" aria-required="true"></textarea>

    What else should I be trying/

    Hi vanhorn,

    Do have a peek at the instructions, as they're pretty straightforward -- they explain what needs to be done. Give me a shout back, preferably via my own site (if you'd like a reply this calendar year) if that doesn't do the trick.

    All the best,
