  • I just installed it, and I love it too, but I’m having the same problem. I notice that many of the sample sites they feature also exhibit this problem, but not all of them. Perhaps it depends on whether the timeline is expressed in JSON or a Google spreadsheet. I’m about to dig into the code…

    That’s a good theory. I bet you’re right. I just wish I knew enough to use JSON instead of Google docs.

    Yeah, but for this relatively minor bug, it’s a great plugin. I really like the convenience of dynamically maintaining the timeline in a Google spreadsheet; it’s a bit of a pain to have to convert to JSON. I haven’t tested the theory yet, but here’s a handy little tool you can use to convert CSV text to JSON: Meanwhile, perhaps a member of the development team will see this thread and come up with a fix. They deserve kudos for a great product!

    Thanks so much for the update! Since I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to JSON, I’ll just have to wait and see if it can be fixed for those of us using a Google spreadsheet.

    Hey caseymcspadden, did you happen to have any luck?

    So it has nothing to do with the file format. I tested the plugin on MAMP using a JSON file and it worked fine except for the 1957 failure.
    Now I uploaded it but it doesn’t stop loading even though I used the same files. Strange…

    Here’s what ended up working for me: I simply removed the “start” from the first entry in the Title Slide column, and now it works like a charm…

    Removing the start doesn’t work for me via JSON. Even using the example JSON from the TimelineJS download at doesn’t work. The first slide displays 1957 in the back navigation. But, if I go a couple slides ahead and then back, the year changes to the earliest date in my timeline. Has anyone figured out a workaround for this issue? Ideally, I would like to just hide the date on my first slide (which is a title slide for my timeline).


    I had the same problem using JSON from WP posts and for me it was the date format in timeline.php which caused the bug. I changed the date() to date_i18n() and everything worked ok for me. Will it work for you?
