Question

Site URL: https://www.wtfjusthappened.net/

Hi. I am trying to add "reading time" to my blog posts (under articles and videos)

Here are 2 examples of the posts -

I am following instructions (that seemed really simple) from here but even after following them the reading time never showed up:

Any insights appreciated!! Thank you.

I did both of these:

1st: 

To add to all blogs, go to the Blog’s Page Settings, click Post Blog Item Code Injection and add the following:

Copy Code
<div class="reading-time"></div>

2nd:  I tried to add to an individual post when it didnt work on all of them and this didnt work either

1. Add a empty placeholder for content to go: Add a code block where you want it to go, delete the dummy content and paste in the following:

To add it to each blog manually add the following to a code block to each blog:

Copy Code
<div class="reading-time"></div>

Hi Paul. Thanks for replying. I didnt' remove the code. I can't figure out what steps I didn't follow. Any insights?! Thank you!!

I did this - when I tried to add it to all blog posts (I checked for the obvious - that I didn't save etc)

1- post blog item code injection
