De readingtime indicator Works nice but you need a bit of PHP hacking for adjustments.

The Reading Indicator bar does not work well.
Ease of use
Yes, if you like the preset settings

The reading indicator bar shows on pages where the reading indicator is not active.
Don't know yet. The plugin should be a module really. That way it could come with more flexibility for including and excluding website pages
A little bit poor for basic users but efficient for intermediate Joomla users.
I used this to: I'll give it a try on a commercial and educational website but I am not sure if it last long. I am happy to pay for a better product
Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your honest review!! Please feel free to contact me directly at the extensions page or at Github with your suggestions and all the issues you find in the plugin.

I would love to keep improving this plugin and making it better and your ideas and experience with the plugin will definitely help me ;)

Add some ads space

Posted on 24 February 2018
Very good. And I would like to have some icon like ads space for that specific items.
Ease of use
Let these ads space flyout when hover or %opacity maybe pretty for viewing.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review!! I'm not sure if I understand your suggestion. Can you please contact me through and give me more details? I will be glad to add some new features in next release ;)

A great plugin for a blog or story site
Ease of use
Works like a charm. Just exclude some categories (if preferred) and there it goes.
I used this to: A story site. That's why I would like an addition to the plugin.
Right now it outputs "Reading time: x to x minutes" An output like: "Word count: xx | Reading time x to x minutes' would be superb.
Owner's reply: Hi Willem,
thank you for your kind words!!

I have just read your comment and as I'm pushing a new release I have included word count in the plugin. It will not be shown by default but you can easily create a template overrides to show it as detailed in the documentation:

The power of simplicity: it just does what's promised. Nice addition for a blog or news site. Would love to see it upgraded for 3.x :).
