    Hello
    I’ve managed to embed the google calendar into the text widget but how do I manage to activate it as it says in the write up in the support section

    Also how do I add things on the calendar as I know it can be done as it says in the support section to do with calendars.

    The blog I need help with is guyhenryfans.wordpress.com.

    That’s a protected blog, and I’m afraid since we can’t see what you’re doing, we can’t really help with that.

    You can google how to use a Gcal, including how to add events.

    You can add a Google Calendar following this guide: http://en.support.wordpress.com/google-calendar/

    You’ll add and manage items on the calendar through Google Calendar, not us.

    @MacmanxYeah, I got that bit, doing it through the google calendar…but HOW does that then go to the wordpress site?

    In other words, I make an event over at google calendars but how does that transfer to the google calendar embedded here at the wordpress site please?

    Thank you

    If the event is publicly published in the public calendar that you have embedded, it will appear wherever the calendar is embedded on the blog.

    @macmanx ok, and how do I check that..? I’ve embedded the calendar into the widget etc…but when I look at it on the site, its just a calendar, no events..so how do I get the event to show in the widget on the site….

    Or do I add the event in the google calendar on the google site…then update ….will it then show in the widget on the site…?

    Yes, you add the even to the Google Calendar, on Google. Then, it will appear in your widget.

    Does this help? http://guyhenryfans.wordpress.com/wp-admin/widgets.php

    Or this….http://guyhenryfans.wordpress.com/

    On Tuesdays I’ve made entries, but as you can see, these aren’t visible, how do I change this please? I did earlier just use the agenda view, but think the month view would be nicer….

    “Events from one or more calendars could not be shown here because you do not have the permission to view them,” is what I see.

    The events themselves need to be made public to be displayed.
