Create a brief README text file that explains key information your project.
Prevent random people on the internet from being able to change your timeline content!
Keep the original template saved in an unedited state in case you need to start over!
Keep your published timeline link in the same location as your other timeline content, so it will be easy to find it when you come back to the project to work on it over time!
Disregard the URL in the Publish to the web pop-up box! If you use that URL, you will get an error. Instead, follow the instructions below.
Consider utilizing the option to create a unique URL for every slide of your timeline—this is a useful feature for linking to individual events and referencing them from other timeline events.
<p><big><b>Here is big, bold text.</b></big></p>
<p><big>Here is big text.</big></p>
<p><i>Here is italics text.</i></p>
<p>Here is regular text.</p>
<p><a href="library.nd.edu">Here is a hyperlink to the library website.</a></p>
(The markup above will display like this: Here is a hyperlink to the library website.)
Be mindful of media file permissions, and attribute appropriately
Working with media in TimelineJS: http://timeline.knightlab.com/docs/media-types.html
Save media files in a sub-folder within your project folder to ensure that if an image or website a media file is linked from disappears, your timeline will not be affected.
Remember to name the file(s) appropriately, so the contents will be clearly understood (e.g., emperor-wu-han.jpg)
If using Google Drive, click Share > Get link > “Anyone with the link can view” > Copy link to copy the image URL to paste into Column L ("Media") of the spreadsheet file
When your timeline is complete, consider backing up your project by taking screenshots and saving those images.
