I have three last questions regarding Past Timeline:
How are things currently going with the accordion/dropdown thingy you plan to add?
Within specific years featured on PT, you'll make an effort to have events within a year be in the order that they occurred throughout that individual year right?
As the years progress, will the timeline "self-extend" alongside the present day with new recent events getting added every once in a while like in FT?
1. I'm still researching the best way to do this. I want to reduce load times, minimise any browser issues, etc. so will probably go with pure CSS. See e.g. examples here:
Over the next few days I'll choose the most suitable one, and then start to adapt/configure it. Perhaps a basic, skeletal menu could appear online this weekend.
2. Yep, we'll try to be chronologically accurate. For geological/ancient eras, this won't always be possible, but as we get nearer to the present there'll be months/days available to narrow down the precise date.
3. Eventually, yes – we'll catch up to the present. But given the garagantuan scale of the past, I'm expecting the website to take several years of work! As I think I explained before, we might do a "concise" version first, just skimming through with brief descriptions under each heading. Then do a second "pass" with more detail, a third pass with even more detail, and so on. This would help us reach the present faster.
