Google Calendar widget FAQ

Where do I find my Google Calendar feed URL?

Your Google Calendar feed URL is the same as your Google Calendar ID (usually an email address). Some types of calendar do have a different address however, so you may need to locate your Calendar ID using these instructions.

How many calendars can I aggregate?

Our plans allow for:

  • Free Plan – 5 calendar IDs
  • Pro plan – 20 calendar IDs
  • Plus Plan – 20 calendar IDs

Why does my calendar event time/date not match the displayed time/date in my widget?

Your Google Calendar may be in a different timezone to our default timezone setting. You should find that the incorrect time/date is within 24 hours of the correct date. To correct this, open your widget for editing and scroll down to the Feed Content section. Open the Advanced settings tab and locate the timezone settings. Choose a suitable timezone and save your widget. When you update the page on which the widget is published or check the preview in the setting screen, you should now see the new time/date is correct.

Can I mix a Google Calendar feed with a Facebook feed URL or an RSS feed?

No – Unfortunately at present you cannot mix different feed types (Gcal/Facebook/RSS) into the same widget.

What Google Calendar content can I display

Our widget can display the Event Title, Event Description, Location and Event Time from your Google Calendar feed.

What elements of my widget can I modify in the setup screen?

You can modify widget dimensions, fonts, colors, border, scroll options, scroll direction, change the date format, choose date ranges and timezones.

Can I customize my widget using CSS?

Yes – Our setup screen offers a wealth of customization options but you can also create a custom CSS and style your Google Calendar widget with far more options available. We have CSS classes for just about every element in the widget.

My calendar widget is not displaying any content – what could be going wrong?

The most common cause of this is that the Calendar you are using has not been made “public.” To correct this please check this support article. If that is not the cause, please contact us and we’ll do our best to help resolve any problems you may have with FeedWind.

How do I control how many events are displayed in my widget?

There are two ways to do this. You can either specify the number of feed items (default is 15) and/or you can specify a date range which will restrict the display of events to only those which occur between the dates in your date range.
