Is there an easy way to add reading time (and possibly a bar at the top that shows progress) without a plugin. There are a lot of tutorials around the web but Genesis and Essence Pro seem to resist to changes proposed in those tutorials. I have tried to add the recommended code into funcitons.php but and smack all of the needed lines where hinted but got nothing to work. Any hints?
Please check below
I have tried such tutorials. They don't work.
For instance this one:
I put the functions code at the end but don't know where to put the
<?php echo reading_time(); ?> line.
I have tried to insert it in the functions.php where the rest of the post info is but ended out with php error.
That is why I'm asking here. I can google such tutorials but when it comes to Genesis which ha sits own quirks and features they don't work out of the box. At least I don't know how to make them work.
Your lovely tutorial worked like a charm!
Thank you very much for helping me out in this tough times!
