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!
