I used iWeb to make a website and am hosting it with justhost. I want to be able to publish my calendar on my website simply to be viewed by people visiting the site. I spent a whole day fiddling with phpicalendar with no luck. Is there an easy way to put my iCal into iWeb and why is there not a simple widget for this!? That would make so much more sence!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.4)

    Welcome to the Apple Discussions. You can embed your online iCal calendar into an iWeb page as described on this demo page: iCal calendar . However, you'll have to size the page so the calendar can fit with a minimum of scrolling as it can't be scaled.

    Google calendars can be scaled to any size you'd like. Also there'a are applications that will sync your iCal calendar with your Google calendar. I've not used it but if size is important, and we all know it is ) you might look into it.

    A couple can be found here: Syncing Google Calendar With iCal, How to Sync Any Desktop Calendar with Google Calendar.

    More can be found in this Google search page: http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=synciCal+calendar+with+Googlecalendar&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

    I'm still not clear on adding the calendar.

    I'm copying and pasting the snipet but it is saying the calendar is no longer available.

    Do I have to replace information in the snipet?

    I would like to add a mobile me calendar to an iWeb page.

    Publish your calendar online from iCal. Then visit it and get its URL.

    In the snippet add the URL to the iFrame code and set the width and height as needed.




    <iframe height="XXXpx" allowTransparency="true" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" style="width:XXXpx;border:none" src="URL OF YOUR ONLINE ICAL CALENDAR"></iframe>

    Again, if the iCal is too big for your iWeb page consider going the Google calendar route and use Spanning Sync to keep the Google calendar synced/identical with your iCal calendar as I've done on my demo page: Google calendar.

    I have followed all this iCal and Google Calendar stuff and it seems to be working very well. HOWEVER.... I've embedded the HTML into the page and now it simply gives me the Google Log In Screen. I can't simply see the calendar and be done with it.

    Another question, when the Google Calendar finally is embedded properly, will it be locked from change?

    Yes. You it's just for display unless you log into Google and do it there.

    You did put in the calendar's online URL into the iFrame code right? My code looks like this:




    <iframe src="http://www.google.com/calendar/embed?src=oldtoad%40gmail.com&ctz=America/L os_Angeles" style="border: 0" width="700
    " height="600" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>

    Is that what yours looks like?

    Thanks. Got it from here.

    This is exactly how I used to publish iCal on iWeb but ever since they 'upgraded' to the 'new calendar', it does not work. The URL I get when I invite people to subscribe (in me.com calendar) is weird and doesn't work and when I'm in iCal on my computer the 'publish' item is not available.

    Have you successfully published a 'new' calendar? How?

    I too upgraded to the newer ical and need to embed one of my calendars on my iWeb page. I have tried everything I have read on coding it correctly without success. I guess one way would be to embed an image in jpg or pdf on the webpage. The problem with that is it won't automatically update with the latest changes. Anyone have the answer?

    I am having the same problems. Has anyone figured this out?
