Hello! Still working on the Mountain Dew Wiki, and I thought it would be interesting to have a page that showed a scrolling timeline of the history of the Mountain Dew flavors. My plan was to make a horizontal scrollbox, and then put a table inside it, which would extend as you scroll to the right. First of all, is this a decent plan, or is there a better/easier way to approach a timeline. Second of all, how would I go about doing this? Thanks in advance.

- In my experience, timeline navboxes are always custom builds. No two are alike because no two have the same level of detail. Not knowing that much about Mountain Dew, I wouldn't have thought that a timeline would have needed to horizontally scroll, really. We're only talking about approx. 50 years of history, right? In any case, it'd be hard to give advice without seeing the information you're trying to convey.
- Generally, though, horizontal scrolling is not something you have to "build" into a table; it's something added by the browser viewing the content. Any table will scroll horizontally if you magnify the text size, or shrink the window width, enough.
- My only advice to you, without knowing the content of your box, is that you center it, and limit the box width to 95% (or something around 660-670px). That way, it will "play nice" with the right column present on almost every page of every wiki. <span style="
