    Hello, I need to know. Horizontal Timeline. I will use with post and a specific category. Small content. A title, image and small text. 1) When viewing the post in the Timeline. Do not have a link in the post (to open another screen). Show the post without link to open it complete. It is possible? 2) Show only one post per screen. It's possible? 3) Show large arrows (left / right) for Navigation? 4) Horizontal example is it possible to show navigation bar? I await contact. Thank you. MauricioTab.

    Hi, I'm hoping you could assist me in getting the plugin as close to my design as possible. - Screenshot: Currently I have this: What I am hoping to achieve is the following: 1. Hide/remove the title of the timeline "Vaping Facts 1" 2. Change the red dots to the red diamonds used in my design (I thought I saw this in one of your demos?) 3. Have the year, eg 1960's on the other side of the timeline, again as I've seen in your demos. 4. Ideally, I need to change the size, colour and H reference for the date eg 1960's. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Leedr

    Hello, I want to buy your plugin, but I have one question before I buy it. Does your plugin support multi post? I want to show 4 post at the same time. Thanks.

    Hi jjcrab, By using our plugin you can create a timeline using posts. Means first you need to create posts or stories then you can showcase a timeline based on these stories or posts. Also you can create a category specific timeline.

    Hi! I just bought the plugin but I have a few big problems with it and I would like to have some help resolving them. 1) I bought this plugin for my upcoming resume site to showcase my work history. That's why I need the plugin to show when I started working for one place and when I stopped working there. At the moment the plugin lets me input only ONE date per item. That's no good. I need it to show something like this "M/YYYY - M/YYYY". 2) Whenever I edit the content of one timeline item and try to edit the text in anyway, the plugin doesn't let me do that. I need to be able to input to some line breaks, bold text and cursive text to the item's text editor but it always shows as normal text in my site without any line breaks. That's really annoying. Can you help me fix these issues?

    Hello Eddie93, Thanks for purchasing our plugin. You can add Dates as per your requirement (M/YYYY - M/YYYY) by choosing "CUSTOM ORDER BASED" option in "Story Based On" setting in Timeline Stories as shown in below shared screenshot : Also when you add shortcode on any page choose full content option instead of short, then you can show all styles, line-breaks inside timeline. To add any Custom CSS, you can add CSS according to your requirement in "CUSTOM CSS" setting of the plugin as shown in below shared screenshot : Feel free to contact us at [email protected] along with your site details if you are unable to do this, we will sure help you in setup a perfect timeline.

    Thank you! I made some changes and were able to get custom dates and bold text showing. I came up with the following short code: [cool-timeline layout="default" designs="design-5" skin="default" category="tyokokemus" show-posts="10" order="DESC" icons="YES" animations="bounceInUp" date-format="custom" story-content="full" based="custom" compact-ele-pos="main-date” pagin] Which looks like this on my site: However I would like to change the colour, boldness and size of custom label 2 and custom date above that. Can you help me achieve that? I guess I need to input some custom CSS?

    It's just the password to see the private page. I don't mind if the people here see it.

    Hello, I have just upgraded to Pro specifically so that I can use custom labels (just year, not month or day) and am having a major problem. I am using X Theme with Cornerstone page builder and do not have access to the shortcode builder so I have no way of telling the timeline to display the entries with the custom labels. Please advise with the shortcode on how to this. A link to the complete list of shortcodes would also be very helpful. Thank you.

    Hi there, Don't worry! We will provide you full assistance. You can generate custom label timeline shortcode in posts section and then easily can use generated shortcode anywhere(pages). You can also use this shortcode. Just update your category name.

     [cool-timeline category="add here cateogry slug"     layout="default" designs="default" skin="default"  show-posts="10" order="DESC" icons="NO" animations="bounceInUp" date-format="default" story-content="short" based="custom" compact-ele-pos="main-date" pagination="default" filters="no"] 
    Please let me know if you are still unable to use our plugin. Thanks, CoolHappy From Cool Plugins Team

    Thank you for the reply, I was able to modify the code you sent. As I said, I have no access to the generated shortcode.

    Hello. Cool Timeline Pro Question : I want to restrict the direct access to timeline stories. The visibility options "Password protected" or "Private" are not working when publishing a timeline story. How can I show the timeline stories in a password protected post and prevent the direct access to the stories when a user knows the URL. Thank you for your advice. Marco Barnig

    I added the following rewrite rule in the wordpress .htaccess file to redirect direct requests to timeline stories towards a webpage informing the user that this content cannot be viewed by direct access : RewriteRule ^timeline/.* /restricted-content.html [L] It works as expected.
