Wordpress theme with a vertical timeline

Do you know this wordpress theme?

Please help me to identify a certain wordpress theme I once saw and now can't find again. The only thing I remember was that the archive had a vertical timeline. Any ideas?

Any ideas about color schemes or # of columns, presence of a background? You're not giving us much to run with.

I think the background was black but I am not entirely sure. When I see it, I will recognize it.

What exactly do you mean by vertical timeline? I have a WP site with ComicPress as the theme and the "Archive" page lists all my posts in reverse order by date (newest first) with the post title:

Jan 24 | Post Title
Jan 23 | Post Title
Jan 21 | Post Title
Jan 19 | Post Title
Jan 17 | Post Title

and so on down the page, and the vertical bars are such that it looks like one long black line, giving it the appearance of a vertical timeline, but do you mean something else?

Could it be Coda? If I recall correctly, I think there may also be a couple plugins and widgets that can do this too.

It is not Coda but it has the same feature: http://demo.woothemes.com/coda/templates/timeline/
Is this a plugin?

I don't know that that is a specific plugin, but you could code something like that fairly easily into any template if you understand some basic coding for Wordpress.

If you don't know any coding, you may find some success searching for plugins related to archive, list, and page (cause, you know, you want to display the list of your archives on a page). Good luck! There are seemingly endless wordpress plugins, so I hope you can find one that works!

You can do this without a plug-in, as described here (and illustrated here).
