Subject: Solved | show the number of characters in text
Is there any function which lets me display the actual number of characters in a page or - even better - in a selectable section of the page?

I am using a wiki for a team which redacts a number of texts for an application where the length of each text is crucial.

(The number of characters in this post is 262, excluding this last line, of course)

The toolbox plugin can count for you.

Thank you, Andi. Unfortunately, my ExtensionManager seems to be unable to find this plugin. Is toolbox its real name?
I'm using Release 2018-04-22a "Greebo" on a Synology server.

The extension manager on Frustrick also fails to find it.  Aparently the only thing tagged with "toolbox" is iphelper plugin.

I can confirm that it is not found.

I noticed two things:
- the auto-completion immediately suggests "toolbox" on entering "t" (it gives two entries: "Toolbox" and "toolbox")
- toolbox is also a tag

I assume the name collision with a tag might cause the problem.

Thanks, everyone. A manual installation installed the plugin without any visible problems and the plugin does indeed what I need.
