LateralPress is a plugin used to generate a timeline of events defined by the user. The dates in the timeline are based on the publish date of the post created for the timeline. For past events
be sure to set the post date to the specific date, since WordPress will default to today’s date.
The plugin creates a custom post type called “lateralpress” and then a shortcode to display those posts in an on-screen scrolling timeline. The plugin is a conversion of the script Lateral On-SCroll Sliding with Jquery written by
Mary Lou – Manoela Ilic.
