This plugin allows you to embed a native looking calendar page on your forum that is linked and controlled by a Google Calendar, without having to resort to using a shoddy looking iframe embed.

Use the Google Calendar interface to create events and mange events, but display them for whoever has the appropriate permissions on your forum.

It could be an admin only calendar, for sharing events with staff, or it could be a public calendar to share events that are wholly controlled by an admin or anyone in the organisation with permissions to control to Google calendar.


Video Preview:
A browser window with Google Calendar is open on the left, with the XF site on the right.

5. Next create an API key from https://console.cloud.google.com/

  • You'll need to create a new project.
  • Then enable the Google Calendar API
  • Then create an API key.
  • You will want to restrict this to just the calendar API, and you could also restrict by the domain you'll be using it on too.

Paste this API key into your XenForo ACP in the options.

6. Start adding events and share your calendar with your members!
