New! This is a new feature included in Timeline Express Pro v1.3.6 and later. If you are a pro license holder, update to the latest release to enable this feature!

Timeline Express Pro includes the ability to generate horizontal timelines, instead of the default vertical layout.

The horizontal timeline can be displayed as a slider, or as a manual scrolling container of events. To generate a horizontal timeline, you just need to include the ‘horizontal=”1″‘ parameter onto the existing timeline express shortcode.

To learn more about the horizontal timeline shortcode parameters, take a look at our Horizontal Timeline documentation.

Shortcode:

[timeline-express horizontal="1" items="4" slide_distance="4"]
You can control the timeline using the arrow keys at the top right of the timeline or you can control the timeline using your right/left arrow keys on the keyboard! The horizontal timeline works extremely well with all of our add-ons as well.
