Help:Embed Google Calendar

Create Talk0

Google Calendar can be a great way to share important dates about the subject of your wikia and provide a way to remind your audience of important events. This is an example of an embedded Google calendar.

Embeding Google Calendar

  • Adding a Google Calendar will be straightforward if you follow these steps.
    1. Sign in to https://www.google.com/calendar and visit the calendar Settings for the calendar you wish to embed (remember to make the calendar public).
  • Go to the section of the page called "Embed This Calendar"
    1. Copy the code in the embed box
    2. It should look similar to this:
      <iframe src="https://www.google.com/calendar/embed?src=78o97umcpn2j7larltemjdg7os%40group.calendar.google.com&ctz=Europe/London" style="border: 0" width="800" height="600" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>
    3. Create a page in the MediaWiki namespace named "GoogleCalendarWidget". To do this, visit Special:CreatePage on your wiki, and use "MediaWiki:GoogleCalendarWidget" as the pagename.
    4. Paste the iframe code for Google Calendar into this page and publish the change.
    5. Next, visit the page in which you want to display Google Calendar and add following code:
      <verbatim>GoogleCalendarWidget</verbatim>
    6. Save the page and the Google Calendar will appear once the page is saved.

I still can't work it out!
