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.
