How to Add Beautiful Event Timeline in WordPress


Hey guys welcome to WPBeginner and
thanks for tuning in. In this video I want to show you how to add beautiful event timeline
to your WordPress website. This is a great feature to add to your site if
you’re wanting to showcase how your business has grown or on a personal
site if you want to show the history of your family or maybe a project that
you’re working on. So to get that we’re going to go to our website dashboard and will login and from our dashboard we want to go down to Plugins>Add New from the search box we’re looking for timeline express. Okay and this is the one we want so we’ll click install now and after it installs we want to also activate the plugin. As the plug-in states the timeline works off of creating new announcements we’ll start
doing that but go into the settings page and here you want to add a title and what we want to do, I’ll list all events cause we’ll have some past. You can also add things for future
things that you expect to happen. And here you want choose how you want to show it. If
you want the most recent items at the top. In here show the characters of the
announcement link. if you want the date to be visible or not or if you just wanted to
show a timeline there’s more information to see, you could
show the read more here and For the default icon you can choose what default icon you want to show. You can setup your colors, background colors, the message that will happen if
there are no announcements found, and then if people do a search on your site if you
want to exclude this from the search results and then you finally if you uninstall the plugin do you want the announcements to also be deleted. So we’ll click
Save Settings and now we can go in and create a new announcement. And even
though we set the default colors you can choose it here to make it change. You can
choose the font here on the announcement date that’s when you want to showcase
when the when it happened here you can upload the image that showcases what happened or choose one from the media library give the detailed information there. And once you’re finished with that, you can click Publish. I’m gonna do a couple more announcements so that we’ll
see what it looks like on the site. Alright once you have a few announcement item set up
you want to add this to a page. So we can do that so I wanna go to pages, add
new give it a title and to add it to you’re just going to add
a shortcode, Timeline Express shortcode to the page and when we click Publish all of those announcements
will come into our page and we can view it just to see what it looks like. Now as you see you can scroll through and then you see the details of the timeline. If you wanna read more you can click read more and it’ll
bring it up into its own page for you to view. and that’s how you add a timeline
to your site. If you like this video click on the like button and go ahead and leave us a comment there, we’d love to hear from you. And subscribe to our YouTube channel to get the latest videos.

  1. I have a lot of trouble understanding this narrator – perhaps if she slowed down a little, the accent would not be so difficult to understand. Fortunately, the visuals are easy to follow

  2. Thanks, I needed that nap.

    Gonna leave you a like, however, because once I woke up and watched the rest it was informative.

  3. Need plugin for sidebar/scrolling sidebar for front page. Colour options, animation possibly and scrolling speed along with customised text options. Have tried many, but could not find anything useful. Any suggestions?

  4. Thanks for publishing. I liked the video, but your timeline comes out perfectly, whereas mine ends up all mushed together (overlapping and looking horrible) and I did exactly what you did. Any suggestions?

  5. hi, when I add the timeline to an existing page it sits on top of the rest of the content and wont allow me to move it down. Anyone got any ideas how to fix this? I'm building the page with a themify theme and the themify builder. Thanks
