How To Add a Google Calendar to Your WordPress Website


Hi everyone! This is Bonnie-Love from D2d
Creative.com and today I am going to share with you how to use a Google Calendar on your
WordPress website. So what you’re going to do is make sure that your logged in to either
google.com or gmail.com. Once you are logged in, you’re going to go ahead and click on
the grid icon here, above in the right-hand corner. And what you’re going to
do, this is a Google app icon, so you’re going to go ahead and look for calendar and
click on calendar and voila. Now I had already set up a test event but we’re going
to go ahead and leave that alone. Your calendar is already set up for you. You don’t
have to do anything to set the calendar up and it already comes with the US holidays.
So what we’re going to do is we�re going to give you a test event here, just to walk
you through, let’s say that Friday at 7 p.m. you are hosting a webinar so you’re going
to double click on that time and date. You�re going to, let�s put in test webinar. Here
you can put in your date and time, we’ve already selected it and let’s say that every two weeks
you’re going to have the same webinar on the same day. So we�re going to click on done.
Here you going to have a location, and you can put whatever you want, so here we�re
going to put in test location and your description here. If you want to add a guest, you can
certainly email them here and they will get an email requesting that this event be added
to their google calendar but if you’re using this on your website you may not use this
function. You can change the color for the event and do a few
other little items here but we’re just going to leave it this way for the sake
of this video tutorial. So we’re going to go ahead and click on Save and once
we click on Save you’ll notice that it has been added to your calendar and then
what you�re going to do is your going to log
into your WordPress website. Now we’re already logged in here. You�re going to go to the
page that you want this calendar to appear on. So I’m clicking on pages and
and I want to add this to the itinerary page. Once you�re in itinerary, what you�re
going to do it is the top columns you want to add it to right underneath the custom
headlines so we’re going to go ahead and click on the + sign here and you are going to
find a Raw HTML. Click on that. Once that opens your going to replace this text so you
can either do a double click to start copying and pasting there or you can
just delete completely. Now what I didn’t show you is that you need to go back in
here on your Google Calendar. You need to go to the settings gear icon, click on
Settings, click on Calendars, find the calendar that you want to add to your
website and then scroll down until you see embed this calendar and you’re going to
double click on that do a copy and then you simply paste it right in here. Once
you paste that you’re going to go ahead and save changes. Now let’s preview and
see what this looks like so I clicked on the preview changes button in WordPress and
as you could see the calendar is now populated. You’ll see the test webinar
that I added and because we did every other week recurring you’ll see it on
every month going forward. Now, I had also created a test event so it’s set up right
there. Alrighty, and now final step and this is the most important step is to click on
update. If you do not click on update, you will not see this on your website. You’ll
only see it in the preview but people, visitors that are going to your website
will not see it. So once you click Update, you are all set and now you have learned
how to add a Google Calendar to your WordPress Website. Talk to you soon!
