How do the WP Word Count Pro shortcodes work?

There are four shortcodes available:

  • 90 will display the number of words on any page or post.
  • 5,599 will display the number of published words on your site.
  • 373 will display the average number of words on all published posts.

Every WP Word Count Pro Shortcode can be extended with “before” and “after” attributes to add text or HTML before and after the result.
