One good feature from page_title module was the character count on the characters entered into the field - any chance this can be implemented into meta_tag, it certainly helps when targeting the 70 character sweet spot for SEO purpose.

Title:Character Count on Page TitleCharacter count on fields
Version:7.x-1.0-beta4» 7.x-1.x-dev
Component:Miscellaneous» User interface

Lets make this a general task of displaying the character count on all fields.

There are modules out there already like http://drupal.org/project/cck_count and http://drupal.org/project/maxlength. I would suggest we make it possible to integrate with these modules, but not do anything too much on our own.

If not possible with another module, then allowing an external library to optionally integrate would be nice as well:

Also this needs to account for tokens which could result in any number of characters. So it would be easy to be confusing for users since a string like 'Test title for [node:title]' while displayed as 27 characters, could easily be way more than that in reality.

May I ask whether there has been any integration with cck_count or maxlength modules?

Reducing this to Minor priority as it's not something I'm going to do for 1.0.

That said, if someone wants to put together a patch that integrates with another module, I'll definitely consider it :)
