    I've been really thrilled with Google Calendar Events -- easy to set up, looks great, and works very smoothly. Thanks for your excellent work.

    Lately I hit a wall handling timezones and hope you can recommend a straightforward solution -- perhaps the issue is on Google Calendar's end, and not the GCE plugin at all? I scoured the forum and tried to troubleshoot, but came up empty-handed.

    The calendar feed shows events in Eastern Time no matter where the user/viewer is located. The site has a national, maybe even international readership who tune in to our live webinars, so getting timezones correct is essential.

    Thanks for investigating & pointing me in the right direction!

    The plugin doesn't attempt to detect the timezone of visitors to your site, and adjust times accordingly, I'm afraid.

    It could probably be done with a little JavaScript, though. I could point you in the right direction, if you're interested?
