Users running a non-download version of Vanilla (pulled from github), on branch release/2019.016 or master from the last 2 weeks should upgrade to release/2019.017 or latest master for security reasons. Downloaded official open sources releases are not affected.

Word Count 2.1.0

Word Count provides you with accurate word and character counts when composing discussions and comments

By default, Vanilla limits discussions and comments to a fixed number of characters. However, there is no way of knowing how close you are to this limit when writing a discussion or a comment and many users therefore often find themselves randomly deleting parts of their post in hopes of meeting the character limit.

No more! Word Count gives you a to-the-letter reading of how many characters you have left when composing posts and trimming your super-long posts is therefore finally as easy as it should be. Oh, and Word Count also counts the number of words in your post - hence the name of the plugin!

Issue tracking

If you come across any bugs or if you have a feature request, please file an issue using the GitHub Issue tracker. Word Count for Vanilla won't be supported through so please stick to using GitHub for inquiries about bugs and feature requests. Thanks!
