Well, I successfully figured out how to make a timeline after a bit of a strugglefest. When I realized the step-by-step process on the KnightLab website was actually useful, it went a lot smoother. Who’d a thunk that directions can actually help you out? Apparently I didn’t.
So, I’d say the timeline is definitely a useful feature–something I’ll probably look into for the website Colm and I will be creating eventually. I chose the timeline since I thought it was probably more relevant for the history here in Morris, though I guess the map could be useful too.
I did my timeline on my experience as a D.C. intern this summer. I spent all this time creating a bit of a lengthy timeline (it was a good way to be nostalgic while also being productive homework-wise), but only half the timeline is showing up. I have no idea what’s wrong! There are six more dates that are supposed to show up, but they’re not.
Well, at least I know how to work the technology; hopefully this wont happen if I use this feature on my website!
