With the updated interface, I no longer find the “word count” feature as I’m writing a post. That was profoundly useful, if I wanted to make sure I said something enticing within the first 50-60 words allowed by “summary” RSS feeds.
I’ve looked through the Preferences menus, hoping to find the switch to turn it on — but no dice. Where has it disappeared to? Anybody know if it’ll be back?
(For what it’s worth: Firefox 184.108.40.206 on SimplyMEPIS Linux 7.0.)
Yes, it’s been covered. At first I was going to tell you to do a forum search but then I did one and found that the forum search for “word count” does not bring up a single one of the threads of the past two days about the missing word count issue. I’ll send in a report about the useless search later.
The answer is that staff are aware it’s missing and are fixing it. No estimate on when, but they know people really miss it.
