This is a feature request for Joomla! 4.

It would be great if anyone could implement a character counter beneath the field of the meta description.

For Joomla 3 there is a plugin that displays the counter for title and meta description. I think it should work for Joomla 4 also.

Yes, the plugin is working in Joomla 4 - I've tried it with the Alpha 5:

But this is a reverse character counter with fixed values. I think a simple character counter is more useful, because Google and perhaps another search engines too change the max length of titles and meta descriptions from time to time.

Well you can set up max values in plugin settings easily.

Should be fairly simple to add, possible adjust the JForm fields to have a display count when limit is in force
