Widgets for blogs: 1 – some calendars

• For general background as well as a couple of other calendars see this post: The gigya shortcode 3 – widgets.
• Paste shortcode into text widget (or html post/page editor).
• You can change the dimensions; check my post on sidebar width.

[gigya src="" quality="high" width="250" height="250" ]

[gigya src="" quality="high" width="300" height="300" ]

[gigya src="" quality="high" width="300" height="300" ]

[gigya src="" quality="high" width="300" height="300" ]

  3. Gosh, only if we could have Google Calendars!
    Is there a workaround to have it? There are requests for it in the forums sometimes, so I was wondering…

  4. If only…
    Flash is just animation with some backend connections and possibly some control buttons. Google calendars are a different story: you can add stuff, which means iframes, which is a no-no in The only workaround I’m aware of is making a header tab link to your GC (I’ve been suggesting that ever since my page tabs as extra links trick was the only way to do it).

    Update: see raincoaster’s comment below.

  5. I was just wondering if it would be possible to iclude iframe contents in a Flash file?
    Maybe this has the answer?

    I am not a Flash coder, so I don’t know if the solution there is relevant at all. Can you please experiment and declare?
    I am keeping my fingers crossed (for a brighter tomorrow)!

    If it is indeed possible, then maybe we can have iframe widgets as well (by putting it in gigya-kind Flash code)! :D

  6. Interesting! At the moment I can’t experiment (or declare): this involves creating a flash movie, which is something I’m not familiar with. I might be tempted to dig into it, but I can’t promise anything now.

  9. Well, you do know you can use the Google Calendar in an RSS widget, right? I have it working on and it’s darn useful.

  10. @rain: Ah yes – I’ll update my reply to Netty Gritty above, and maybe add a note in the post too. Thanks!

  12. Hi (and sorry, my French is rather poor so I ‘ll reply in English).

    A little while ago you had the “animated water” calendar in your footer, and now you’ve got the Autumn calendar. So you’re doing it right, and the widgets are working. If you can’t see them, then you probably have a slow connection or a browser problem. Try the following:
    • force refresh the page;
    • clear your browser’s cache;
    • use a different browser;
    • go to Settings>Reading and set the number of posts per page to only 1 or 2.

  13. Panos, can you explain (or point me to the explanation)raincoaster suggests above for using the google calendar as an RSS feed? tried pasting the HTML link from my calendar settings into the WP RSS widget box to no avail.

  14. To get the right URL, you go to the calendar settings and click the XML tab.
