While it isn’t urgent, it would be nice to have a shortcode or even a stats page, that showed the word count (sans Title) of the pages. The blog I need help with is burtabreu.wordpress.com. November 4, 2015 at 11:17 pm #2493741 darnelldibblesStaff Hi there! Right under the text box of your page and post editor (bottom left), you can find the word count of each page/post. There isn’t a current feature that publicly displays a total world count of each page on your site, but feel free to suggest it in our ideas forum: https://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/ideas Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! November 4, 2015 at 11:34 pm #2493742 stormvisionsMember Oops, that’s the forum I though I was on! November 4, 2015 at 11:35 pm #2493743 stormvisionsMember Ah, that is this forum (I think). November 5, 2015 at 2:27 pm #2493788 darnelldibblesStaff Haha, it is. Sorry! We’ll make sure that the idea is sent to the proper department. You’re not the only one who have suggested this feature. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! November 5, 2015 at 2:57 pm #2493789 stormvisionsMember Thank you. November 5, 2015 at 2:58 pm #2493790 darnelldibblesStaff Anytime!
