    Hi all,

    I would like to browse my thousands of historical blogs in a timeline catgory.

    For example:
    Menues of years, months and day (first months and days are hidden, by clicking on the year, the months appear, by clicking on the months, the days appear).
    or a timeline.

    Cause I am new to wordpress, I would like to get a hint, in what direction(s) I can proceed... Any hints?

    Thanks
    CJC

    Would be better to use post dates to emulate a historical timeline. In this case you don't need to create enormous amount of categories and can use simple wp_get_archives function. Otherwise look to get_categories and other functions that related to categories or taxonomies.
    In the both cases you will need to create some special page or archive templates to display archives.

    IMHO This is very difficult task for a newbie :)
