This plugin adds word count functionality to TinyMCE by placing a counter on the right edge of the status bar. Clicking the wordcount in the statusbar switches between counting words and characters. Using the menuitem, situated in the Tools dropdown, or the toolbar button you can open a dialog box with both word and character counts.

Type: String

Example
tinymce.init({
  selector: "textarea",  // change this value according to your HTML
  plugins: "wordcount",
  toolbar: "wordcount"
});
