Simile Timeline Display

Simile is a javascript library developed by MIT to allow the creation of interactive timelines.

If you wish to write a timeline, then you will need to create the javascript yourself, which requires a certain technical skill. This WordPress plugin creates a user interface so no manual editing of javascript is required. This makes this plugin a handy digital humanities tool.

You can see examples of this plugin on the World War One Centenary site developed by the University of Oxford.
