I was not lucky, I installed it with a wordpress with +4000 active posts and just crashed complete the server. I arrive to deinstalled it but still was on other small wordpress (10 pages). The server was complete instable. after remove it, normal. I decided to reactive it and server crash... Debian server with Plesk installed PHP 7.2.x WP 5.4 ... Sorry but really bad experience for me Frank

All minor problems previously listed and new features requested (in old reviews) have been implemented by the developer. This plugin does perfectly what it says it would do. I recommend it vividly to all users seeking to have a column "Words" in the overview table of all articles (the column is sortable). And draft articles show word count as well.

This plugin can't sort posts by word count. Rather than sort numerically, it sorts alphabetically. That's just nuts.

I installed this plugin to add word count to the admin lists of posts and plugins. I am using Yoast SEO, which adds columns for some SEO features (links, SEO score, readability score). Normally I configure the admin list by clicking Screen Options on the admin list. However, when I installed this plugin I was no longer able to open the Screen Options, that link was disabled. The plugin had added a column for Word Count but apparently blocked further choice of Screen Options. This may be a glitch in the plugin. However, it's more likely a problem caused because Yoast is already trying to add columns to Screen Options, therefore this plugin collides with it. In any case, you're advised to set up your desired Screen Options before you activate this plugin, because otherwise you may not be able to choose them any more. I also agree with the other reviewer who advised adding Word Count to Drafts as well.

Great, just works, but doesn't show word count for drafts. I will keep watch and update my review if this gets fixed. Currently using "Admin Columns" plugin to achieve this instead, but would prefer this simple, awesome plugin.

Nice little plugin for seeing how long your articles are at a glance. Very helpful to pick out which articles are short and need beefing up for seo purposes. FEATURE REQUEST: Consider making the "Words" column sortable with a click on the "Words" column header. That way it's easy to see your shorter and longer articles in order. Thanks!
