Beskrywing

Reading Time shows the estimated reading time of the post, in seconds or minutes.
The estimate is automatic; a custom value for a single post can be inserted using a Custom Field named “readingtime”.

How is the estimation done?

The estimation is based on the “speed” value stored in the settings menu.
The value for speed should be chosen between a span of 150 words per minute (slightly slower than average) to 250 words per minute (slightly higher than average); if not set, a default value of 200 is used.

Aanbevelings

It does the right job, I like it, but I suggest to make singular and plural for minute/minutes and second/seconds... I have articles with 1 minute time read and they show as 1 minutes. Good job for the plugin !
