Close Menu


An attractive way to display chronological events or milestones.

Timeline is a parent block that holds a single type of child card. Because there is only a single type of block the Timeline parent can hold, clicking on the + inserter will automatically add a new entry to the timeline. The timeline bar takes it color from your site’s primary color, which can be adjusted in the customizer. There are no parent block settings.

You can drag around your entries to reorder them in the timeline. Take note, the timeline is not automatically ordered by date. We wanted to provide enough flexibility for you to use something other than dates as the entry keys, which means that it’s up to your to keep your entries in order.

On desktop, your entries will automatically alternate alignment, even cards on the left and odd cards on the right.
