    Hello,

    That’s odd. It doesn’t sound like you’re doing anything wrong.

    Any chance you could provide a link to your post, so I can take a further look?

    Ross.

    Thanks for the reply Ross, but unfortunately the server is on my inside home network. I am developing a replacement web site for my local church, and can’t upload it to the real server yet.

    I am running WP on WAMP. It just seems so odd that the event list works, but the grid does not. I assume I just put the shortcode in the body of the post. No other WP things I have to set (total newbie to WP here).

    Thanks again.

    Ah, I see.

    Just putting the shortcode in the post body should do the trick. Could you post the exact shortcode you’re using (with parameters etc)?

    It should be something like this:

    [google-calendar-events type="grid" title="Events on"]

    Ross.

    Here is a link to a screen shot of the edit page.

    Hmm, puzzling!

    Which theme are you using? Also, what other plugins do you have installed?

    Ross.

    Oh boy, this too embarrassing. Problem is fixed. All my error…I had downloaded two similar sounding google calendar widgets and had activated the wrong one. Sorry to take your time! Great tool though!

    Oh! No worries, I’m glad you figured it out! 🙂

    Ross.

    Is there a way to hard code it into a template?

    Hi Kaotik,

    Yes, via the do_shortcode function, which you’d use something like this:

    <?php echo do_shortcode( '[google-calendar-events id="1"]' ); ?>

    Ross.

    Great, thanks.

    I am only new to WordPress. I want to use google calendar events. My theme is bbPress (Twenty Ten). http://www.freedomlodge1461.org/calendar/ is my link. The calendar is showing but not what my google calendar is showing. Please help. Thanks 🙂

    I got it! Thanks anyway 🙂
