In this code we have a timeline that is not full screen but can be displayed by the arrows that are placed for it. The color of the line in this timeline changes though. There are also photos of each item in the timeline. Each timeline item can have a text at the top of the timeline in addition to its text. The timeline item border is the same as its line. Each item in the timeline includes the year at the top of its text box.
