Character Count
« on: January 03, 2008, 11:25:27 AM »
Is there a way to do a character count instead of a post count.  So maybe it can show instead of "Username: 540 posts", maybe to read "Username: 10,546 charaters".  Can this be done?

It's doable, by checking the post string length and record it to the database, on a new column or using the preexisting postcount column in the Members table.

If you're not really familiar with PHP coding, you can post it as a mod request.
