Shows the maximum number of characters remaining while writing a post
, as in the user signature.
This is shown in:
Create/modify post (non-WYSIWYG mode only).
Create/modify PM (non-WYSIWYG mode only).
Quick reply (at bottom of pages, collapsed by default)
Quick modification of post (does not shown the initial remaining number).Note: You cannot simply use the Toggle WYSIWYG button
and have this mod work! You must disable WYSIWYG mode thusly:Profile > Modify Profile > Look and Layout > Uncheck "Show WYSIWYG editor on post page by default."
This is the default in IE, where WYSIWYG does not work at all, but you'll need to manually disable it in Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and possibly other browsers.
Why use this mod? Writers will appreciate knowing if they're coming close to the 50K characters per post limit. Remember, you can always use the "Preview" button to see how it's all going to look.
