Post Length Indicator

Displays a dual-coloured bar alongside the scrollbar to indicate how much of the page contains the post and how much contains the comments.

"Post Length Indicator" displays a dual-coloured bar along side the browser's scrollbar that shows readers what portion of the page contains the actual post content and what portion contains the comments. This is perfect for blogs that receive a lot of comments as it indicates to readers how long the article is and saves you from having readers turn away because your post appears too long.

The indicator will show on all posts that have comments, or that have comments enabled even if there are no comments yet. Text labels will display next to the indicator when a user hovers over it and clicking on each of the indicator sections will scroll the page to the top of the post content or the comments, depending which secion was clicked.

The colours of the indicator can be changed from the plugin settings page, as well as the post types for which it must appear. The plugin is fully translatable with WPML.
