Post Timeline allows users to create vertical timelines which can be divided into two sub-type of timelines: date-based or tag-based. Therefore, each vertical timeline created using Post Timeline can either be date-based or tag-based.
This article will explain what are the main differences between these two terms, date-based and tag-based.
“Tags” are an integral part of a timeline, they are like bookmarks that divide the timeline into various sections. For example, a timeline that shows all the countries of the world can have the tags “Asia”, “Africa”, “Europe”, etc. The tags in this case are used to divide countries by continent.
Date-based timelines have tags that show a specific year in which an event took place. Moreover, each post created for a date-based timeline needs to have a date associated with it.
Once the date-based posts are added to a timeline they will automatically be placed in chronological order. Furthermore, the date-based tags can be arranged in either ascending or descending order.
Tag-based timelines have tags with a word that categorizes the timeline into sections. Once a timeline post is created it can be assigned a certain tag, which can also be used for other subsequent posts.
All the posts with the same tag will be added to the timeline once a certain tag is selected. Moreover, you can create a timeline with multiple tags, with each tag having many posts.
