Create a timeline for blog’s posts or other post type (even CPT):

[maxicharts_timeline_post type="[post|page|cpt1|cpt2|...] groups="[draft|pending|publish...]"]"

Create a timeline from a csv:

[maxicharts_timeline_csv data_path="[url_of_your_file.csv]" separator="[,|;]"]

where:

  • type : is the post type you want to create timeline for
  • data_path : is the URL of you .csv file
  • separator : specifies the csv separator, usually , or ;
  • groups : only show post with these statuses

Inside your CSV file (url set in data_path), you need to use field defined by the visjs timeline documentation.
Required fields are content and start, all others are optional.

[maxicharts_timeline_gravity_flow form_id=[form_id] entry_id=[entry_id] groups=[step|assignee|workflow]]

  • form_id : is the gravity forms form ID you want to create timeline for
