Requirements: tested with Moodle 1.9.7 and 2.0.2 (all Moodle 1.9.x should work, Moodle 2.x - static XML only).
- Download and uncompress the code files. Copy the renamed timelinewidget directory to the filter directory on the server, eg. /var/www/moodle/filter/timelinewidget/
- Log in to Moodle as admin, visit Site Administration | Plugins | Filters | Manage Filters. Scroll down and click on the icon for Timelinewidget to enable it.
- Try one of the Usage examples below.
Try one of the two modes:
XML: Upload a timeline XML file to your course (see the example directory). Then, type the following in a resource using Moodle's rich-editor (note, line-breaks, which can be represented by <br /> are required). Substitute an appropriate integer in place of COURSE_ID and adjust the other parameters as needed. Minimal syntax:
dataUrl = COURSE_ID/simile-invent.xml
