TimelineJS Tips and Tricks (more can be found here)
- To show only the year or only the month and year for an event on your timeline:
If you’re using the TimelineJS Google spreadsheet template, first make sure the cell you want to modify is set to Plain Text — "Format > Number > Plain Text.” Then simply enter the year (e.g. 1994) or month and year (e.g. 7/1979).
- To Add BCE/BC dates:
You can add B.C. dates by using negative years. For example, -100 would be 100 B.C. Be sure to change the formatting of the cell you want to modify to Plain Text — "Format > Number > Plain Text".
Adding your timeline to Sakai:
- Consider adding just the URL part of the <iframe> link supplied by TimelineJS:
for example <iframe src='http://cdn.knightlab.com/libs/timeline/latest/embed/index.html?source=0A...' width='100%' height='650' frameborder='0'>
