Word Count tool - counting the prose text in a Wikipedia article
From Ewan McAndrew on May 10th, 2017
This script, developed by Dr. Alex Chow at the School of Divinity, adds a Word count to the list of tools normally found on the left of the Wikipedia screen. The script produces an output of the word count for the main body and the references section, highlighting the counted fields in yellow and cyan, respectively. Clicking the Word count link again toggles these calculations and highlights off.
Try it for yourself!
