With a need to make a highly-interactive content in Elementor, you go for Stratum Elementor Widgets. With a need for a creative Elementor timeline display, you take advantage of the Stratum Horizontal & Vertical Timeline widgets.
Why Do I Need Elementor Timeline Widgets?
Such an interactive website element as a timeline will help you visualize the sequence of events, as well as showcase achievements, project tasks, or an action plan in chronological order. Using a timeline, you may also provide an overview, show turning points, or identify missing aspects.
Neither Elementor FREE nor Elementor PRO offers a timeline widget or anything similar. With the Stratum Elementor Extras addon, however, you have a chance to try 2 timeline widgets for free. This would be:
As you can see from the demos above, the addon functionality is more than enough to help you create eye-catching Elementor timelines that will become a valuable “bright spot” of any webpage.
First things first, Stratum timeline widgets provide you with the default timeline layout and along with the ability to edit one in real-time visually (no coding involved).
A few more benefits that may be interesting for those searching for a timeline widget are:
- Unlimited number of cards (items);
- The ability to set as many items in one column as you need (the PRO feature of a horizontal timeline widget in Stratum);
- Top, bottom, and chess-styled layout;
- 2 timeline pointers to your choice (icon or text);
- Customizable scrollbar color, height, and radius;
- Fully customizable cards (normal, hover, and active ).
General Settings & Features of the Horizontal Timeline Widget
In the Content tab of the vertical content timeline, your settings are divided into 2 categories: Items & Layouts.
In the Items menu, you can add as many items (cards) to your timeline as you can. Also, you can alter the HTML tag to the desired option if needed, and show (or hide) the card arrows.
The Layout settings of the horizontal timeline widget WordPress let you set up the alignment of your cards and a line:

Set the needed spacing between the image and text, as well as set the image border radius (you can make it circle-like)
The meta title is where you typically mention the date of an event included in your timeline. It’s highly customizable and lets you edit both typography (font, size, letter spacing & height) and styling (color options, background color & box shadow) in one place:
- Content & Title & Description
All three menus allow you to edit the typography, colors, and margins for the element they refer to. Remember that all Stratum widgets inherit the styling of your current theme – just click the globe icon near these settings to see the list of pre-used colors and fonts.
- Point & Line
And the final part of customizing your timeline widget is to configure the two valuable elements forming a connecting thread between all cards.
Choose the content of your point: a text or an icon. Then, edit your point in accordance with your choice.
Finally, customize the line thickness and colors of both active (progress) and regular sections:
