Timeline with years only - nav line items overlap

I have created a timeline that only needs to show years, using the code shown below. The navigation line at the top of the timeline generated has the individual items distributed across it in proportion to the actual dates (1885 – 2015), however the text for individual years that are close together (e.g. 2004 and 2006) overlap each other.
Thanks in advance,
James

Well, that went pretty badly. Can I suggest you tell people they can't paste HTML samples in support tickets, or give us a specific way of submitting sample code?

Hi,
We are sorry for late reply.

Content timeline jQuery plugin doesn't have an option to represent years on timeline. Only days in months. Timeline by years exists in wordpress plugin. Showing years properly on timeline would aquire some custom coding.

If you need help on making these changes, we are here to assist you and help you.

OK, thanks. Do you mean custom coding by us (should not be a problem) or by you?

Could it perhaps be made to work if we create our own categories (e.g. 1851-1900, 1901-1950, etc)?

Looking at some of the other support tickets it looks a timeline that only uses years would be a popular option for you guys to develop :)

Hi,
The easist way to rearange timeline nodes is with custom css, where you can evenly spread them on timeline.

To add an option for timeline by years would aquire custom coding and changing plugins functionality.

We will have in mind you suggestion for developing this kind of option.

Please review our message and send us a feedback.
