    Hello friends css-strick,

    I wanted to count the number of words in the quote so I could set the font-size based on that. As can be seen in

    Chris Coyier posted about this in /
    I do not know if Chris Coyier is using:

    ob_start(); the_content(); $content = ob_get_clean();

    or by using the:

    get_the_content ();

    Unlike, I’ll be using more than one sentence on the same page.

    I’m just a beginner in php and WordPress, any help will be very helpful.

    Note: Question translated from the Portuguese language with GoogleTranslate.


    Ok, karlpcrowley. Thank you very much for your help!

    But unfortunately I’m just a beginner in php and WordPress. How would I implement this in the_content? I would have to create a function functions.php? Could you give more details, please?


    Ok, Robskiwarrior. Thanks for your help.

    This code actually does the work. But it involves the entire contents with a single div. But my case is slightly different: I have a few paragraphs in my content and would like the word count was made ​​in each paragraph and each paragraph have the font size set according to the amount of words.

    It may be easier with jQuery/JavaScript. See this script:

    The problem is that this script only works with this structure:

    Lorem ipsum

    Lorem ipsum

    It does not work eg with this structure:

    Lorem ipsum

    Lorem ipsum

    You or someone expert in Javascript/jQuery could give me a light?
