How do I enable this functionality?

After you have installed and activated Gravity Forms Word Count, word counts can be enforced on any supported field. Let’s step through that process.

Add a Single Line Text, Paragraph, or Post Body field to your form.
Open the field settings and navigate to the Perks tab. Insert a Minimum and/or a Maximum.

That’s all there is to it. The word count will automatically be enforced on the field.

Feature Details

Minimum Word Count

If a minimum word count is enforced on the form and the user submits the form with too few words, the form will display a validation error.

When a form is submitted with a field that contains the Word Count perk settings this perk intercepts the form and counts the amount of words submitted within the field. If the field contains too few or too many words then the form is returned with an error.

Maximum Word Count

Maximum word counts are enforced differently. GF Word Count will automatically prevent the user from typing more spaces once the limit is met. If the user tries to bypass the limit by copy/pasting more words, the limit is still enforced.

In the event the user bypasses the automatic Javascript enforcement, the form will throw a validation error when submitted.
