System – Meta Character Count

February 25th, 2013

Search engines limit the amount of text in each SERP result. Meta Character Count displays a live word and character counter for the title, description and keywords fields in Joomla Global Configuration, Content Categories and Articles (frontend and backend) and now also Menu items!

Be certain that your most relevant content ends up on the SERP and doesn’t get truncated.

Update 1.2 2/10/12: Added counters to menu items and added title counts to all existing counted forms.
Update 1.3 resolved a JS issue with external URL menu items – and moved JS to a class
Update 1.4 added more counted fields in more forms. fields which use HTML editors must toggle the editor off to get a current count.
Version 1.5 updated to allow live counting of TinyMCE content in articles and category descriptions.
Version 1.6 fixes an issue introduced in the latest Joomla 3.0.3

4/26/2012 – Joomla 1.6/1.7 availability and support withdrawn.
