Solved Editor Word Counter

Post by inallsorts July 4th 2014, 11:25 am

Greetings everyone,

I've applied the Word Counter as per this tutorial here on Forumotion: https://help.forumotion.com/t131191-add-a-word-counter-to-the-editor

It works great, however when you use the "Quote" button to post reply (on a given member's post), It also takes Into account the "Quoted text" (from the given member), hence the "minimum words to send" has already been exceeded (from the quoted text) without even posting anything.

Is there a way so the Word Counter does not take the quoted text Into account when quoting a post? 

Thanks In advance for all help given.

Hello inallsorts,

We can try to filter out the quotes with a regular expression. Give this a try :
Code:
  $(function(){$(function(){

       var MinNumberOfWords = 5;
       var LetterCountPerWord = 3;
       var ico_compl = "http://i73.servimg.com/u/f73/18/10/89/49/ok-gre10.png";
       var ico_incompl = "http://i73.servimg.com/u/f73/18/10/89/49/exclam10.png";  
  
     if($("#text_editor_textarea").length != 0){
          $("input[type='submit'][name='post']").attr("disabled", true).css("opacity", "0.5");      
          $(".sceditor-container").after("<br/><div id='div_minchars' align='center'><div id='div_minchars_header'> Minimum words to send a message: " + MinNumberOfWords + " (at least " + LetterCountPerWord + " letters)</div><div id='div_minchars_info'></div></div>");
          
          var sceditor = $("#text_editor_textarea").sceditor("instance");                  
          var str = sceditor.val();
          var regex = new RegExp('\\w{' + LetterCountPerWord + ',}\\b', 'g');
          var str_arr = str.match(regex);
          var str_len = str_arr == null ? 0 : str_arr.length;
          
          if(str_len >= MinNumberOfWords) $("input[type='submit'][name='post']").attr("disabled", false).css("opacity", "1");
          
          sceditor.keyUp(function(e) {
             str = sceditor.val().replace(/\n/g,' ').replace(/\[quote=".*?"\].*?\[\/quote\]/gi,'').replace(/\[quote\].*?\[\/quote\]/gi,'').replace(/\[\/quote\]/gi,'').replace(/\[quote\]/gi,'').replace(/\[quote=".*?"\]/gi,'');
             str_arr = str.match(regex);
             str_len = str_arr == null ? 0 : str_arr.length;
             if(str_len >= MinNumberOfWords) {
                $("#div_minchars_info").html("You've written <span style='color:green'>" + str_len + "</span> word(s). You can now send the message <img src='" + ico_compl  + "' />");  
            $("input[type='submit'][name='post']").attr("disabled", false).css("opacity", "1");
             }else{
                $("#div_minchars_info").html("You've written <span style='color:red'>" + str_len + "</span> word(s). You need " + (MinNumberOfWords - str_len) + " word(s) to send this message <img src='" + ico_incompl  + "' />");
                $("input[type='submit'][name='post']").attr("disabled", true).css("opacity", "0.5");
             }
          });
       }
    })});

The code has worked nicely, thank you kindly once again.
