Hi there Sam,

You can add a calendar by using our Widgetbox Gallery widget on the right-hand sidebar. Alternatively, you can use a service like the
http://www.google.com/googlecalendar/... or http://www.calendars.net/

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 widget you would like to use on your site and customise the settings
4. Click on the green 'Get Widget' button and it will be saved and added to your page
5. Save and preview your page to view the widget.

To add the calendar to your page using the second or third option above, 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

I hope this helps you. I personally like the Google calendar and it adds nicely to your site. If you need help adding it please let me know.

Hi Jeremy,

I have created a google calander and attached it to my page, but only a calender with todays date comes up, you then have to click onto the 'google calender viewier' link on top to view the calender, and even then you still have to log into the calender to view it. Do i need to change some settings somewhere?

Thanks
Sam
