Worked straight out of the box for my custom theme (coded by 3rd party). Easy plugin configuration with a great many finetuning options. Plus it recognises all post types (instead of only page + post); fantastic with LearnDash for example.

Wow! I have been seeing the reading progress bar and I thought it only came with themes until I choose to find it here and I found this plugin! This is excellent and it worked just perfect. Thanks for making this available for free. It's a five star!
