    Hello, I am using this code for reading time, achieved in this topic:
    https://generatepress.com/forums/topic/creating-an-estimated-reading-time/

    /**
    * tiempo de lectura en post
    */
    function tu_estimated_reading_time() {
    
    	$post = get_post();
    
    	$words = str_word_count( strip_tags( $post->post_content ) );
    	$minutes = floor( $words / 120 );
    	$seconds = floor( $words % 120 / ( 120 / 60 ) );
    
    	if ( $minutes < 2 ) {
    		$estimated_time = $minutes . ' minutos' . ($minutes == 1 ? '' : 's') . ', ' . $seconds . ' second' . ($seconds == 1 ? '' : 's');
    	} else {
    		$estimated_time = $seconds . ' segundos' . ($seconds == 1 ? '' : 's');
    	}
    
    	return $estimated_time;
    
    }
    /**
    * tiempo de lectura en post
    */
    add_filter( 'generate_post_author_output', function( $output ) {
        $output .= '<div class="read-time">Tiempo de lectura: ' . tu_estimated_reading_time() . '</div>';
    
        return $output;
    } );

    It works perfect.

    Some way to be seen in the header of the blog, I have used this code.

    <!-- needs this comment to work -->
    <h1>
    	{{post_title}}
    </h1>
    <div class="hero-meta">
     {{post_author}} | {{post_date}}	
    </div>

    Hi,

    You can create a shortcode for the tu_estimated_reading_time() which you can use within the header element.

    Here’s the snippet:

    function tu_custom_author_meta() {
      ob_start();
      if(function_exists ( 'tu_estimated_reading_time' )){
        echo '<div class="read-time">Tiempo de lectura: ' . tu_estimated_reading_time() . '</div>';
      }
    
      return ob_get_clean();
    }
    add_shortcode( 'reading_time','tu_custom_author_meta' );

    You can then change the markup within the Header element to this:

    <!-- needs this comment to work -->
    <h1>
    	{{post_title}}
    </h1>
    <div class="hero-meta">
     {{post_author}} | {{post_date}} | [reading_time]
    </div>
