Hi TroopMom,

You can add a calendar by using our Widgetbox Gallery widget on the right-hand sidebar. Alternatively, you can use a service like the Google calendar ( or

To use the Widgetbox Gallery
1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery widget onto your page
2. A dialogue box will open, search for 'calendar'
3. Choose the calendar you would like to use on your site
4. Edit your settings to customise the widget
5. Click on the green 'Get Widget' button and it will be saved and added to your page
6. Save and preview your page to view the widget!

To add the calendar to your page using the second or third option, you would need to copy the HTML embed code provided by the calendar, go back to your SynthaSite and follow these steps:
1) Drag-and-drop an HTML widget from the sidebar on the right onto your page (the icon for this is a blue sphere)
2) An HTML editor will open up that will allow you to write or paste your code (use right-click > paste or ctrl-V to paste)
3) When you are done, click "ok" and you will see the way that the HTML displays on your page.

Hi there TroopMom

Here is the direct link to the calendar home/rendering page where you can input your dates and events. you will need to sign into Google to create a calendar.

1) On the left side of the screen and in the (My Calendars) box click (Create)

2) On the (Create New Calendar) page name and add the description as well as other details for your new calendar.

3) When done on the bottom of the screen click the (Create calendar) button

4) Click on the (Month) tab... Click on the day you would like to add a note and then in the pop up box include the event then the (create event) button. Do the same for all other dates you would like to add events to.

5) When you are finished with your calendar on the left side of the screen and in the (My Calendars) box click (Settings)

6) Then click on your new calendar

7) Then in the (Embed this calendar) section click the (Customize the color, size and other options) link. On this page you can adjust the size to fit your webpage. Most all of the styles can handle a 800 width x 600 height pixel size but if you wish to make it smaller just change the 800 x 600 to suit your preference. If you changed the size, color or any other options then you must in the upper right hand corner of the Google Embeddable Calendar Helper page click the "Update the HTML" button then copy all the code to insert into a HTML widget in your webpage.
