Reading Time Estimate for Articles
Display a reading time estimate above articles so that readers can better estimate the text length of your articles.
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.

Important note: The template __blogArticleReadingTime has been renamed. If you've made adjustments to this template, you must copy the templates __entryReadingTime and __entryMessageListReadingTime and apply your changes again.
Note: Due to extensive technical adjustments to the plugin, from version 1.1.0 onwards it is no longer licensed under the "Krymo Software - Free Products License", but under the "Krymo Software - Commercial Products License". This means that the plugin must now be purchased. The version released under the previous license (1.0.0) may still be used. However, it does not entitle to updates that include bug fixes or new features. This requires purchasing a license for this plugin.
