Adding a Divi timeline to your website allows you to display events chronologically in a visually simple style that is quick and easy for your viewers to understand.

By using a timeline, you are able to display your information more clearly than using standard text and ensure your key information is understood. There are many situations where you may want to add a timeline to your Divi website, but some of the most common use cases would include;

  • To display your company history timeline
  • To display your product updates timeline
  • To display your work experience timeline
  • To display your project roadmap timeline

There are a few different options to add a timeline in Divi including;

  • Use a Divi plugin that is designed for creating timelines or one that features a timeline module
  • Use a pre-made Divi timeline layout
  • Create a timeline yourself from scratch in Divi using various default Divi modules

In this article, we’ll compare the most popular ways to add timeline elements to your Divi website.

Your options for creating a Divi timeline

  1. Divi timeline layout
  2. Divi timeline plugins
  3. Build it from scratch yourself

1. Using a Divi timeline layout

There are many free and premium Divi timeline layouts available to download that range in price from free to around $30.

Using a premade Divi timeline layout is a quick and easy way to add a timeline to your website without the need to design one yourself from scratch. There are a number of free timeline layouts available that cover most use cases. To use a timeline layout you can usually just drag and drop the layout file onto your Divi page and edit the content with your own.

For those of you running an agency or building lots of websites, you may want to buy one of the timeline layout packs that include multiple timeline designs in a single package. From what I have seen, the premium timeline layouts rarely offer any more advanced features or better designs than the free ones available to download but you do get a larger choice of designs.

The layouts released by Elegant Themes on their blog all come with an in-depth tutorial of how the layout was created so you can either just download and use the layout, or use the tutorial to build the layout yourself. Whilst it takes a lot longer, following the tutorial will give you valuable Divi skills so you are able to create your own layouts using Divi in the future.

Below are a few of the best Divi timeline layouts available to buy or download for free.

2. Using a Divi timeline plugin

Most of the multi-feature Divi plugins offer a timeline module as part of their multi-feature plugin and there are a few Divi plugins that are designed solely to create a timeline on your website.

The multi-feature plugins mostly have very nice designs and features and offer great value as the timeline feature is only 1 of many features offered by the plugin.

There are also a number of WordPress timeline plugins that work with Divi and offer advanced design and features for your timeline. We often search only for Divi timeline plugins but using a general WordPress timeline plugin is often a great option too. Elegant Themes have a good roundup of WordPress timeline plugins on your blog if you want to check out this option further.
