Hey Tyler, do you think you could help me improove this horizontal timeline in a fashion so that the back-button and the forward-button will better help the user to really “slide” through the articles? My goal is to free the user from having to click twice, to get to the result: First click currently needs to be on the forward-button and the next needs to be the TIME-EVENT iteself (inside of the timeline). To accieve this, the Mod would need the same adaption , no matter if displayed on mobile or on desktop. We would need each click upon the back/forward-Buttons to trigger the next article to appear. In detail, we would need two things to happen when forward/back is clicked: A: have the next Article slide in. And B: Smoothly Center that articles timelime-element on the vertical timeline and fade out the highlighting of the old element on the timeline and and fade in the highlighting to the new (centered) timeline-element.
The same logic would apply in case the mod is displayed on mobile.
I feel this would make the timeline so much stronger!
It would free the user from double clicking on the timelines forward-button first, only to again click on the event in the timeline , in order to then finally really get the next article displayed .
