Add some ads space

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.

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:
