Re: Changing the excessive default reading time on posts from a site

Hi redditors, I hope you’re all well. So, I’m a freelance writer creating blogs for a client who has asked me to publish them from his WordPress site. So I have admin access to it now, and the thing that’s been bugging and frustrating me is how the reading time for each is WAY above what it should be. I have spent a few hours trying to fix this, but no luck.

One thing I do suspect is the whole thing about the site being a site than a .org one. I feel like the former is more limited when it comes to features and settings. Has anyone experienced this same issue I’m referring to? Is there a way to remove the estimated reading time completely or be able to add your own?

Any responses to this question would be greatly appreciated.

  1. WordPress does not have an “estimated reading time”.

    So you would need to find out what they’re doing to create that in the first place.

    If you think it’s a com site, you should probably ask them on the com systems.
