Progress bar widget
I would very much like to add a progress bar widget to my blog, to record the word count of my current work in progress, but I haven’t been able to figure it out. Is this something that is available only on a premium account or WordPress.org? Thanks in advance.
The blog I need help with is douglasdanieldotcom.wordpress.com.
In your New Post dashboard, at the bottom left corner of the text box, there is a word count. Is that what you needed, or did you mean something else?
Unfortunately, that’s not what I’m looking for– not the word count of a post, but a widget (I assume) that displays the word count of the short story or novel I am currently working on. I have seen these on the pages of some bloggers, but I think it may be something available only to a premium or wordpress.org account; if not, I needed some guidance on how to set up the widget. Thanks.
Sorry, I haven’t seen anything like that.
I don’t know how those sort of counters work, but if it involves flash/java, you won’t be able to use a widget like that on WordPress.COM. All that kind of coding is stripped out for security concerns.
One option would be to create a custom text sidebar widget, you’d just have to manually update the count.

Understood. That’s what I suspected. Thank you both for your responses.
You’re welcome from me. I just fleshed out what ifmomsaysok shared with you.
