Display a reading time estimate above blog articles so that readers can better estimate the text length of your blog articles.
- You must have WoltLab Suite™ Core 5.2 (at least 5.2.4) or 5.3 installed.
- You must have WoltLab Suite™ Blog 5.2 (at least 5.2.4) or 5.3 installed.
You can configure this plugin in the ACP under Configuration ⇒ Blog ⇒ Blog Articles ⇒ Reading Time Estimate. You can disable this functionality completely without uninstalling the plugin. You can also specify whether the reading time estimate should be displayed in minutes only (rounded, rounded up or rounded down) or in minutes and seconds. By default, an average reader is assumed to read about 200 words per minute. Of course, you can also adjust this value individually to your target group.
The reading time estimate is displayed on the article page as well as in article lists (the latter requires WoltLab Suite™ Blog 5.2.9 or newer or a manual template customization).
Further individual adjustments (such as the icon) can be realized by modifying the template __entryReadingTime and __entryMessageListReadingTime as well as the language items blog.entry.readingTime.minutes and blog.entry.readingTime.minutesAndSeconds.
