How to show progress bar only on some pages

Since version 1.1.0, it has been possible to show the progress bar only on certain pages. Now you have the possibility to assign progress bar to just about anything you want, giving you full control.

Reading Time plugin comes packed with a multitude of assignment options. You can assign progress bar to, or exclude them from, virtually anything.

If all of the assignments are set to Ignore, that progres bar will show up on all pages.
As soon as you set one or more of the assignments to Include or Exclude, the progress bar will be limited to the pages/situations matching those assignments.

The different assignments have 3 states:

  • Ignore (default)
  • Include
  • Exclude

By default the assignments are ignored, meaning the progress bar is not limited by assignments.
To use an assignment, you set the option to Include or Exclude depending on the desired effect.
If you set an assignment to Exclude, the progress bar is assigned to all pages/circumstances that do not match that assignment.

Below you find all the available assignments with the available settings for it.
