Script Summary: This Script counts the characters in the textareas for Article->Keywords and Site Structure->Page description for the free Content Management System (CMS) Contao (http://www.contao.org, formerly known as TYPOlight) This script was formerly known as TYPOlight Character Counter.
In the free Content Management System Contao (http://www.contao.org, formerly known as TYPOlight) the user can enter descriptions for the current page and keyword meta data for the article in order to search engine optimize the page and the text. As search engines usually index only the first 150 to 300 characters for the description and usually only the first 800 characters for the keywords, it is useful to know how many characters one has already written. This script does just that and shows the current number below the text area. This script can easily be adjusted to work for any textarea of any page.
