What is WordPress Timeliner?
wordpress Timeliner is a powerful plugin, which generates a timeline based on events. What is an event? Well, it can be anything with a date stamp on it – a news article, a blog post, a portfolio item, you name it. If it has a date, Timeliner understands it!
Timeliner comes with two unique designs to begin with, and it’s also easily customizable with CSS.
I encourage you to watch the video preview to see how powerful and easy to use Timeliner is, and also how easy it is to install.
