    Thanks for your contribution Damyon. I tested the functionality and reviewed the code. Approving now.

    We showed this plugin to a faculty member and it doesn't provide the functionality they were expecting. They wanted to see a live update of the word count without having to press a button. Is that possible?

    You would have to poll the server on changes. It can't be done accurately from javascript because it depends on the php multibyte conversions etc.

    Updated to mark as compatible with all versions up to Moodle 3.2. There are no code changes.

    Watch out! For those who need an exact count, it seams as I the first word starting from the second line on don't get counted anymore: https://github.com/damyon/moodle-atto_count/issues/6

    Please can you update the version this supports to 3.11 so that it automatically installs during an update?

    Hi, sorry to bother you again. Is there any chance you can change the version number that is supported to include 3.11 I have just updated moodle again and it has not installed your plugin during the upgrade as moodle thinks it will only work on versions up to 3.4. If you can change the version it supports to 3.11, the next time we update it, which we do most weeks, it will install automatically. Thank you.

    I am sorry I seem to have upset you... I have only messaged you twice and these were the messages...

    April - 2019

    Please could you update count for Atto. Every time we upgrade moodle, it is not detected so we have to manually go to the moodle website, find the plugin and install it.

    If you should add this I would very much appreciate it, thank you so much.


    Could you also do the same for Horizontal Rule for Atto. Cheers.

    Then I was blocked. I am sorry if I have offended you with these messages in some way, it was not intentional. I hope you are ok and you can look into this issue for us. Thank you so much, again.
