Doesn't seem to work for me. I installed it and set it to count characters under the Settings page. But it doesn't show up in pages, posts or any of the custom content types. I'm on wordpress 6.0

Works as expected, it counts words, paragraphs, and characters. A useful tool for copywriters, editors, or anybody who writes directly on WP.

Love it! You just install it and it's ready, no further configuration is needed. Displays words, characters, and even paragraphs. It's light and haven't spotted any bugs. Must have already!

Useful for taking a quick glance on what you have in text (especially if you care for search engine optimization)
