    I want to set the minimum word count as 100 for the blog post .
    i have tried to use this code

    function minWord($content)
    {
    global $post;
    $content = $post->post_content;
    if (str_word_count($content) < 100 ) //set this to the minimum number of words
    wp_die( __(‘Error: your post is below the minimum word count. It needs to be longer than 100 words.’) );
    }
    add_action(‘publish_post’, ‘minWord’);

    It shows the error message but then also it publishes the post instead it should not publish the post.
    please help why its happening.

    Hello Rishabh,

    You are validating post content on wrong action. Please download the latest plugin code for ‘bp-simple-front-end-post’ for the following url.
    https://github.com/sbrajesh/bp-simple-front-end-post

    and try use the following code and let me know if it works or not

    
    function buddydev_validate_post( $error, $post ) {
    
    	if ( str_word_count( $post['bp_simple_post_text'] ) < 100 ) {
    		$error['error'] = true;
    		$error['message'] = __( "Please provide more than 100 words" );
    	}
    
    	return $error;
    }
    
    add_filter( 'bsfep_validate_post', 'buddydev_validate_post', 10, 2 );
    

    Thank You
    Ravi

    Hello Rishabh,

    It is just a filter provided by “BP Simple Frontend Post” to validated the form before saving the post.

    Just replace 100 with 200 in the condition and message string as well. It will work

    Thank You

    Hello Rishabh,

    Sorry but didn’t get your question. Are you talking about pagination. Please make me more clear on this.

    Regards

    Hello Rishabh,

    I have checked the BuddyBlog pagination as it seems working fine as expected behaviour i.e. New post comes first and so on.

    Thank You
    Ravi
