The reading progress bar is a great user experience on longreads. Especially if it accurately depicts the reading progress in the article text, and nothing else. This is standard on single blog posts and enabled by default.
Location top of screen, bottom of screen or below a sticky menu
Choose color of the reading progress bar
Have the bar start at 0% even when part of the article is visible
Select post types you wish the bar to appear, or individual posts
The reading progress bar has smooth initializing since part of the text may already be visible, after that a lightweight update-function ensures quick response while scrolling
When the sticky menu disappears during resizing or scrolling the progress bar automatically defaults to displaying at the top of the screen
If there is no single article identified (by class names or id) it uses the whole page to calculate progress
Attachment to a sticky element can be either absolute (default) or relative (use the checkbox in settings)
This is my 6th WordPress plugin but my first one freely available to everybody. I hope you enjoy using it as much as I enjoy building it!
- css classes ‘ruigehond006’ and ‘progress’ are scheduled for removal in a next version, if you target the bar in css use ‘#ruigehond006_inner’.

Install the plugin by clicking ‘Install now’ below, or the ‘Download’ button, and put the WP-reading-progress folder in your plugins folder
By default it only works on single blog posts and uses an orange colour
Go to settings->WP Reading Progress to customize it
Upon uninstall WP Reading Progress removes its own options and post_meta data (if any) leaving no traces.
