Summary of this tutorial:

Start by installing and acticaitng the Simple Calendar Google Calendar Plugin then go to the Calendars, Settings page.

For the calendar to work you would need to get an API key by vising the Google Developer Console website and clicking the create new project button.

You will need to provide a name for your project, it can be anything you want but something that helps you identify it would be best.

You would want to enable APIs and then under the Apps APIs you want the calendar API enabled.

Go to credentials and create a server key and provide a name for it.

Now Go to your calendar dropdown and share the calendar as public to get the calendar ID that you will need.

Now go to Calendars, Add New and you will be able to set up your calendar. #WordPress #WordPressTutorial #WordPressTips

    I thought the tutorial was well presented at a speed which I could work with however, following it repeatedly for a number of attempts I still get the error message that the API and calendar cannot be found. I wish I knew what I was doing wrong

  • Benstan Stephen on November 17, 2018

    Thank you, very helpful. However, my credential screen (maybe new version) is different, I can't see the events on the WP page. Please, can someone help, how to fix this?

  • Deceptions of the Ages News on November 19, 2018

    I think they updated it. I got an error message with that code. It let me copy and past the html so it worked. Nice tutorial.

  • Olivia on January 14, 2019

    This was a great instructional video! Well done!

  • Stan Jackowski on February 18, 2019

    Thanks. I am building a Church website and I like the plugin, and the way Google Calendar intergraded nicely into WordPress.

  • Charles Montgomery on February 25, 2019

    Very well done and a professional support video!

  • Jk on April 7, 2019

    can you add Google calendar with without plug ins?

  • Legion Designs on April 8, 2019

    Outdated yet still works. Just one thing is drastically different that I could see and that is you do not copy the public share url. If you do the plugin will throw a 404 error. What you need to copy now is the "Calendar ID" which, when in your Google calendar, is under Settings ==> Integrate Calendar (on the left). Then look for "calendar ID", which, for me anyways, was just my email address.."name@gmail.com"

  • Mervyn Hann on April 20, 2019

    Fantastic video. Clearly communicated how to utilize Google Calendar in WordPress. Thank you.

  • john bob on May 4, 2019

    This was very outdated but helpful.

  • Nicole McKibbin on May 7, 2019

    How do I get rid of the "See more details" link? When you click on that it takes you to your personal calendar which is not "see more details".

    Has to be at minimum a business account

  • Niko Metsälä on May 30, 2019

    Question: How can I make it so that the calendar on the site shows when there is a reservation, but not any info other than that? I can select on google calendar that "show free/reserved status (but hide other info), but if i select that, all the reservations vanish from the site

    So in short, I want to show free/reserved calendar on the site, but hide the other info

  • AYD on June 30, 2019

    what a good explain video

  • Peter Onger on July 18, 2019

    Why you do this, this way?
    Google generate iframe html code.

    Just copi and paste to your website.

  • Chelsea Captan on August 8, 2019

    Hi in the upper right hand corner it says edit calendar in red. Will that always be there or will it disappear once I am in live mode? Thanks

  • Henrique Losada on August 11, 2019

    If I want to ad same calendar but in another language, how do I do that?
    this calendar is linked to one google account and I can not ad a second calendar that is link to a second google account. if there is a way to do that let me know how

  • Mark Searson Hypnotherapy on August 27, 2019

    Thanks. Works fine except I want my visitors to be able to view but not modify. Can you get rid of the edit link ?

  • AndyDOHD1 on September 25, 2019

    I've been looking for Calendars to incorporate into a site belonging to a community group I am a member of. I may try to use a Google Calendar on our site but also wondered whether you had any recommendations for calendars for wp? Thanks in advance.

  • Gray水 on October 2, 2019

    Thank you. This was super helpful and easy to follow. I'll probably be visiting this channel again soon.

  • David Ruggerio on October 4, 2019

    Great Tutorial

  • Nathan Dean on October 22, 2019

    At 6:50 where you hover the one event in your inserted calendar, the content of the event is obscured by the white background to the event – exactly as happens on mine. How do you get the text in an event to show up without having to click the "see more details" link?

  • Herman Mallory on November 18, 2019

    Can others add to your calendar? For example, a customer sees a free time slot for dentist appt, could they add to my event calendar? Thanks in advance.

  • przecinek007 on November 20, 2019

    Nice tutorial, but google change all look of the pages, and i try few times step by step use your tutorial in practice, but it's doesn't work 🙁 Can you record this tutorial again – but in 2019 ? 🙂 Help please 🙂

  • Jeff Kash on December 10, 2019

    Thank you so much for this video. I was able to create the calendar on our website with your tutorial. I very much appreciate you sharing this.

  • Gareth Jones on December 17, 2019

    This was very useful. Clearly explained – even for a novice. Many thanks.

  • Small Biz Geek on December 18, 2019

    This plugin is no longer maintained. Don't waste your time.

  • Meghan Arcari on January 16, 2020

    Some features have changed, but this video will still guide you through adding a google calendar effectively. Straight forward and easy for beginners.

  • Willie van Zyl on January 31, 2020

    Great tutorial.. but also, great voice work. I was so relaxed after listening to this 😛 You should do just do a YT channel where you read random stuff.

  • MSc. Rodrigo Santos on February 23, 2020

    Congratulations! Thank you so much for your help!

  • jdhalvo on February 26, 2020

    I love this, but I think it needs an update… I finally got there, but most of the google pages looked wildly different from this. (As this is 4 years old, it is entirely possible a newer version exists…)

  • Scott Bowman on March 9, 2020

    Thanks for your assistance!

  • William Keyworth on March 13, 2020

    sorry if this is the wrong place to ask but does the simple calendar for google calendar have a side bar plugin for upcoming events? like here: https://www.huntingtonvt.org

  • Glen C on April 10, 2020

    Great, thanks so much. Still the correct process in 2020, with some cosmetic changes…

  • YUMYODA on April 28, 2020

    Hi, is there a way to have potential clients book appointments?

  • 312 K on April 28, 2020

    I have a question: if I have a calendar that is shared with my family (I.e. we have all subscribed to each other’s calendars) and I put only mine on the website. Will that create a site where everyone’s schedules can always be seen up to date because I have subscribed to all of them?

  • Rebecca Richter on May 8, 2020

    This seems much more complicated than simply creating a shared calendar in Google and copying and pasting the embed code into a webpage. Is there any particular benefit to installing the plugin and going through all these extra steps?

  • Tiago Tozi on May 30, 2020

    Congrats. It's very good. Just a doubt…. Can i make changes in my calendas from website or just logged in Google Calendar?

  • Victor Aliguma on June 2, 2020

    I can't thank you enough. Who else is here in 2020?

  • Q on July 25, 2020

    Hi will this remind me for bookings placed on my WordPress website meaning when customers book on my WordPress website will it automatically go on my google calendar and remind me accordingly

  • Alex Atuh on August 16, 2020

    Thank you for this tutorial. Would users on your site be able to download the calendar details on their phone?


  • Lorie Zweifel on September 10, 2020

    I have Google Calendar Pro and I need to add multiple calendars to be displayed on the website as one combined calendar…. any references?

  • Iconic1k on November 1, 2020

    thanks for the video, but my site uses elementor and for some reason, I don't get to view the calendar settings when I click add new calendar. Can anybody help with this?

  • Anca Simova on March 3, 2021

    Thank you a lot for this amazing video!!! I could add the APIs to my webpage

  • Yes on March 15, 2021

    Is it free to use?

  • Arkev on March 15, 2021

    Thanks so much, very helpful video!

  • jonata paulino on August 5, 2021

    Very good your explanation, congratulations.

    It's what I was looking for. Only a question:

    I only need to configure the plugin once, and from then on

    setting will my google calendar changes reflect automatically to wordpress?

  • Raimat Golf Club on January 11, 2022

    Do you know why calendar embedd is not shown in mobile, still opening site with chrome?
