This could be very useful as a guide for organising the sections/pages:

Little or no progress since the last update.

However, I'm taking a week's holiday soon and plan to spend that entire week on Past Timeline. :)

Some progress on the main "flowchart" for navigating the timeline. Half the images are now done. I'll try to do the rest tomorrow. Will then need to add CSS transitions/links, which lead to each of the big sections (early Universe, young Earth, dinosaurs, etc.).

Can't wait to see the website get another updated layout.

Sneak preview of the "flowchart" I'm creating for the main timeline page (currently viewable on desktop only).

https://www.pasttimeline.net/timeline.htm

This will be different to the homepage, in that you'll be able to switch between numerical years, and historical periods.

I hope to create some nice fade/transition effects when it loads. So first, the Big Bang will fade in from white, then each section below it will fade in, one after the other. Then the years will appear in each rectangle, on a logarithmic scale, i.e. 10 billion BC, 1 billion, 100 million, 10 million and so on, down to 10. I'll do the same for "browse by period", and then do a responsive version for mobiles and tablets.

Once this page is done, I can then work on the subsections with more detailed years.
