I’ve introduced the Time to Read tag as a field, but I’m not sure whether this is meant to be computer generated by number of words in a document or is the Author meant to guess a time for each new post?
That’s up to you really! Netlify CMS doesn’t know anything about your front-end so of you want to have an input field for an author to guess a time in the CMS that’s fine, but it might be better to calculate it on the front-end. There are a bunch of plugins out there that can take care of it for you.
Yes, a plugin seems the answer.
Thanks for your input. It’s appreciated!
For anyone else interested… there is a timeToRead field based on 230 words per minute in Gridsome so that probably comes from them or Vue.js.
Anyhow, it enabled me to delete my own field where I was guessing the time to read.
Thanks so much for following up here! This information will almost certainly help someone in the future. <3 !
