Came across this site http://simile.mit.edu/timeline/

How cool would it be to see all posts and comments on one of these time-lines ;-)

    *bump* I think that this is an original, graphical (GUI?), at-a-glance event-timeline; whose Vanilla-incorporation would benefit users with event bulletin-boards. Do we already have an extension / beta? Alternatively, what are your thoughts about achieving this?

    its not easy to use. adding event in the timeline requires u editing an xml file

    i think its sweet! we will definitively be using this in or project management application! But i dont see it as a vanilla expansion though...

    Schiz, could the XML document not be created on the fly (like an RSS feed?)

    yeah u can, where will u store the original data to be converted to XML the product doesn't have any frontend, where u can enter ur events and manage them

    I started looking at doing this but then realized how complicated the graph would be to show all Discussions and all associated Comments. But this is a programming challenge and I will try to move forward. Is there a function in Vanilla that will build a link for you by passing it certaing comment information?
