For people read about 200 words per minute.

// Calculate Reading Time

function epcl_reading_time( $content ) {

// Predefined words-per-minute rate.
$words_per_minute = 225;
$words_per_second = $words_per_minute / 60;

// Count the words in the content.
$word_count = str_word_count( strip_tags( $content ) );

// [UNUSED] How many minutes?
$minutes = floor( $word_count / $words_per_minute );

// [UNUSED] How many seconds (remainder)?
$seconds_remainder = floor( $word_count % $words_per_minute / $words_per_second );

// How many seconds (total)?
$seconds_total = floor( $word_count / $words_per_second );

if( $minutes < 1){
$minutes = 1;
}

return $minutes;
}

OR use this:

For people read about 200 words per minute.

// Calculate Reading Time

function epcl_reading_time( $content ) {

// Predefined words-per-minute rate.
$words_per_minute = 225;
$words_per_second = $words_per_minute / 60;

// Count the words in the content.
$word_count = str_word_count( strip_tags( $content ) );

// [UNUSED] How many minutes?
$minutes = floor( $word_count / $words_per_minute );

// [UNUSED] How many seconds (remainder)?
$seconds_remainder = floor( $word_count % $words_per_minute / $words_per_second );

// How many seconds (total)?
$seconds_total = floor( $word_count / $words_per_second );

if( $minutes < 1){
$minutes = 1;
}

return $minutes;
}

Then you need to call this function to display on your site, and you can put it anywhere, use something like this:

<?php echo reading_time(); ?>

This returns just a number, so you’ll have to add any context around it in your HTML to put it in context.
