It’s nearly the end of 2021, hooray! One last post for the year, mainly because I noticed something the other day and wanted to have an excuse to use it and play around. The ability to add a timeline block to a blog post! I discovered it by accident and clicked on it before I realised what it was. You can add a really nice looking responsive timeline block to one of your posts (or pages) in WordPress. So I figured I would give it a whirl.

First, from the top of your post, click the toggle block inserter plus button.

Then type the word timeline into the search box. If you have never installed this before, it will show you what you have available to install. I went with the Timeline block by Cool Plugins, mainly because it has 5 stars and the other has none, and it looks a little nicer. Click on it and it will be installed for you.

It will immediately add a new block for you that includes a timeline with two dates on it.

Clicking on it you can then edit a few settings on the right side for the block. By default, the timeline goes on two sides with alternate dates. This can be changed so everything goes on one side. You can set the size of the title text, description text, and date and time text. You can also adjust the colour of the text and the colour of the accents for the circle and line on the timeline.

Adjusting an individual block within the timeline is really easy. Just click on the text to change it, simple! You can also add an image to each section too. That’s it!

Finished Timeline

So here is a timeline for you. I think it looks pretty slick and it;’s also responsive so resizes nicely no matter what device someone is reading your post on. 🌞 Just a bit of fun. Do you think you will have cause to use it in the future?
