jQuery Vertical Timelines

This plugin turns ordinary definition lists into smooth, interactive, vertical timelines.

Usage Instructions

Create your timeline using a standard <dl>, with the dates stored in the <dt> tags and any content associated with them stored in the following <dd> tag.

    <dd><em>The Two Gentlemen of Verona</em></dd>
    <dd><em>The Taming of the Shrew</em></dd>
    <dd><em>Henry VI, Part 2</em></dd>
    <dd><em>Henry VI, Part 3</em></dd>

Next, simply initialize the timeline by calling the plugin. This will add style and functionality to the timeline.



The demo uses the timeline of plays by Shakespeare as described on Wikipedia.
