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.

Had to tweak some css values so it works with my theme, but it's working great and updating in real time with what i add in my google calendar
I'm pleased you got the time and style issue customised for your needs, thanks for taking the time to leave a review :)
Works flawlessly despite the label "unmaintained", simple to use and it's free. So nothing to complain and a lot to praise. Hope it will continue working with future releases of XenForo.
Thanks for taking the time to review, glad you're finding it useful :)
