Not recommended for private Google Calendars
By ,

The plugin produces very nice looking content and is quite flexible. All seems to work well with public Google Calendars using a simple API key.

However, the trouble comes when you switch to the Pro version of the plugin, using OAuth. Once the API key is set in Googles developer pages, it is pretty easy to setup. However, the plugin will fail to connect to your Google account and simply show 'Nothing to Show' in calendars. Inexplicably, this began occurring after a Google account password change. After several rounds of troubleshooting, it is clear that there isn't any way to effectively debug this problem. The only solution offered is to remove and re-install the plugin.

Still don't have this promising plugin working. Not recommended.

unable to log in to my site's dashboard

After installing and activating this plugin I have been unable to log in to my site's dashboard...I had to delete it via FTP. After that everything went back to normal...

Easy to use. Paid version not worth the money.

This is a simple to use plugin for displaying PUBLIC Google calendars. It works well for that. If you need to display a private calendar, that's a different issue. While the paid Pro version will display private calendars, the event capabilities are non-existent. You can't allow people to view or receive notifications for private events. Definitely something to be aware of before you purchase.

Great Plugin & Great support!

Works like a charm once you figure out how to go through maze setup by google API. Basic comes with plenty of standard features for simple calendar display and share. Also author provides great support even if you ask a dumb question. :)

After trying several different calendar plugins I found a recommendation for Simple Calendar on WPbeginner so I tried it out. It was up and running in less than 5 minutes and there were clear and concise instructions every step of the way. Thank you for providing this plugin!

Everybody and their momma uses Gmail. This makes managing calendars easy as pie. Manage your Google calendar.... and viola... it shows up on your website! Done!

Super-easy setup & beautiful responsive design!

I'm in love - in under 10 minutes I was able to display on my WordPress page a clean, well-styled Google Calendar!

I love the responsive design - great for the iPhone screens.

Buy the two plug-in "add on's" makes this plug in perfect!

If you want to add a google calendar into your website this plugin is what you need. With the purchase of "Google Calendar Pro" add on and "FullCalendar" add on my life has become simplified.

Previous to this plugin I was having to log into my website dashboard at least once a week to update my calendar and change events around... what a pain in the a$$. Now with this plug-in, I am able to use my public google calendar and edit that calendar from any device and allow my peers to edit that calendar as well and those updates are auto pushed to my website! No more editing multiple calendars in multiple places... I now have one calendar to rule them all.

Easy and simple
