Home Forums Feature Requests Character Limit Indicator


Character Limit Indicator

  • The character limit is a great feature, but unfortunately the user is given no indication in regards to how many characters he/she’s got left.

    This character counter should be added below the textfield or something so the user can finetune the text based on the character limit.

    It shouldn’t be much of a hassle to implement this and would make the feature much more userfriendly!


  • ACF do not offer the option to see how many characters he/she’s got left but you can do this through jquery, create a file example.js on your theme folder and then link it to your backend, get the ID of the field and done.

  • I’m already aware how I can solve this, but it would be nice if it was added to the plugin as it’s a feature that makes it much better for the users.

    +1 for this feature, a colour coded counter would be awesome

  • This won’t help everyone but I recently created a plugin that will do this. It will only work for ACF5.
