Google Calendar Embed

This plugin will allow you to embed Google Calendars in Posts pages and in a Widget.

To use it you need to activate the plugin:
Dashboard->Plugins
Click the Activate link under the Plugin’s name:

Activate Plugin

You then need to get the embed code from the Google Calendar you want to embed.
The Calendar must be public.

Visit Google Calendars and for the calendar you want to show click the popup and choose Share this Calendar:

Then go to the Calendar Details page and find the embed code:

Edit the post or page you want the Calendar to appear on and paste in the code:

The embed code will look like this the html is changed automatically into a shortcode:

[googlecalendar src="https://calendar.google.com/calendar/embed?height=400&wkst=1&bgcolor=%23FFFFFF&src=pvhq66ns53b1v83ppd0r5dgfk0%40group.calendar.google.com&color=%230F4B38&ctz=Europe%2FLondon" style="border-width:0" width="600" height="400" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"]

but will embed the calendar when the post is published:

You can also display a Calendar in a widget on the sidebar of your blogs. There is an example on the right of this page.

To add a widget you need the code again, it might be best to adjust the size by customising the code. Copy the code on the calendar site.

Add a Widget, Dashboard-Appearance-> Widgets, where you will find the Google Calendar Embed Widget.

Note the code is not changed to a shortcode.

The above code will produce the calendar widget you should see on the right of this page.

Note, we limit the widget to appearing just on this page with the Jetpack Plugin’s Widget Visibility module.
