Add a Mini Calendar Plugin to a WordPress Blog

Article ID: 101
Last updated: 20 Nov, 2014

The ability to add the CalendarWiz Mini Calendar Plugin into WordPress depends on who is hosting your WordPress blog.  WordPress.com is a service and host; but you can also run WordPress on your own server or use a different hosting service that runs WordPress.

If you host WordPress on your own server or use another host that allows JavaScript, you can incorporate the Mini Calendar Widget into your blog. To incorporate the Mini Calendar Widget into the sidebar of your blog, follow the steps below:

  1. Login to your WordPress account.
  2. Go to your Dashboard -> Appearance-> Widgets
  3. On right hand side of your dashboard you see “Current Widgets”
  4. Click “Edit” in the text box or Click “Add” a Text Widget if there isn’t already a text box available.
  5. Open another browser and go to Your CalendarWiz Calendar > Administration Menu > Website Plugins > Go to the "Mini Calendar"  Admin Menu Screen.
  6. In the Script Tab select categories to appear in the Mini Calendar. Click Save button.
  7. Go to the Mini Cal tab and set the width to 200 px as a starting point. (This may be adjusted at any time by updating the mini calendars settings in this admin screen and saving the settings.)
  8. Make any other adjustments/customizations to your plugin in the Color and Popup tabs. Scroll down and Click “Save”
  9. Go to the Script Tab and copy the JavaScript code for the Mini Calendar from box titled “JavaScript Code For Theme:XXXXX”
  10. Return to WordPress Dashboard and paste the script into the open text box. Click “Save.”
  11. Go to your page.  The Mini Calendar plugin should appear in sidebar of your blog.

If you use WordPress.com the service/host, WordPress.com does not allow JavaScript or iframes to be incorporated into its blogs.  Therefore, the Mini CalendarWidget will not appear on a blog hosted by WordPress.com.

You can add a link to your full calendar or a web page containing your calendar in the sidebar or your wordpress.com blog.  Follow the steps below:

  1.  Login to your WordPress account.
  2. Go to your Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets
  3. On right hand side of your dashboard you see “Current Widgets”
  4. Click “Edit” in the text box or “Add” a text box in the sidebar and then “Edit.”
  5. Insert the following code in the text box that opens to create a text link to your calendar or website page with text “Open My Calendar.” You may substitute any text you wish.
    Be sure to substitute your calendar identifier for yourcalendaridentifier in the below example.
     
    <a href="http://www.calendarwiz.com/yourcalendaridentifier" target="_blank">Open My Calendar</a>
  6. Click Save and Close the text box.
