So sad to lose such a great plugin to poor developer decisions...
By ,

I loved this plugin before the updates. Now it is useless. The developers say they stripped the CSS out of the plugin because it was bad form to have it there. Fair enough, so I lost all of my old formatting; that's an inconvenience, but fixable. But now, as I try to add new formatting into my child theme css so that I can make the widget readable in our theme's background colors, the browser debugging console is pointing out that my own css is being overwritten by the css built into the plugin! Seriously?! So there is no css in the plugin, but yet there is css in the plugin, and it happens to be the wrong css. If I can't style the widgets to make the text appear, then nothing else matters about this plugin. This seems so obvious to me, but I guess it doesn't seem obvious to the developers. They have mentioned that enhanced styling controls are on their "to do" list, but it should have been done before the update was ever released. The new updates are absolutely not ready for prime time. If you are lucky enough to have not updated the plugin, I would strongly advise that you don't until they get many more bugs sorted out.

This is a great calendar plugin. I am using it on several sites now and even accessing multiple calendars with the plugin. The developers are very responsive and doing a great job!

Fast updates, awesome!

With the new Google calendar update, the plugin authors put up a warning and updated once they had a release. Works! Thank you!

The Google Calendar Events (GCal Events) is the perfect plugin if you are looking to display your Google calendar on your website. I truly appreciate the options available to display the events in a GRID view or LIST view. It is a simple to configure plugin that anyone can utilize. Download and installation is simple.
Lastly, the support is first rate and the developers do care about their product's ability to deliver a first rate experience. Thanks Phil and team!!!

New update makes my site blank.
By , for WP 4.0

I have updated the plugin, now the admin and site is all blank. It was working totally fine before the update. After I disabled the plugin from ftp, site is working normally.

Whoa... has stopped working -- feed not displaying
By ,

UPDATE: I find that you are indeed aware of this and that it is related to a change in Google's API. https://wordpress.org/support/topic/gcal-api-update-on-nov-17?replies=7

The plugin has suddenly quit displaying its feed. I've rechecked and re-entered the feed URL, and reverified that the calendar is (still) shared --- Google has done a major calendar update this weekend. I wonder?

Any help?

works as described, would like to see in-grid event headings
By , for WP 3.9.2

Nice work! Would like to see the event heading shown right in the grid, rather than having to hover / click on the date to see details.
