WordPress Posts Timeline

Description

The WordPress Posts Timeline Plugin uses only css to create a vertical timeline for a post category or custom taxonomy. The CSS is very flexible so it should look good in small or large sizes.

It will pull uncategorized posts by default.

A brief Markdown Example

Default Usage

[wp-timeline]
Displays posts in post uncategorized category, showing 5 posts, 10 words per post, no images and year only date format.

The date is from your post’s published date – you can modify it to change your timeline date.

Change default settings on the settings page.

FAQ
