style it

Easy things to style are the Year, month and postmarker elements.

Example:

timeline-title {display:none;} // removes title from top of timeline.

p.pyear {color:#000;font-size:2em;}
p.pmonth {color:#929292; font-size:1.3em;}
.timeline-container i {color:red;} // styles all the icons colour property.
ul#day_list {border-color:#929292;} // styles border line color
ul#day_list .post-marker {border-color:#929292;} // styles date marker line color
