Calendar for WordPress


Kieran O’Shea has released a Calendar for WordPress plugin.  It looks like the regular Google Calendar webpage embed except that any calendar edits are made within the WordPress dashboard instead.  This plugin displays a full-month calendar (no option for daily and weekly spreads, yet) with all your events displayed per date.  The user hovers the mouse pointer over an event and a full description of the event is displayed.

You can download the calendar right here.  And view a sample execution of this plugin right here.


Calendar is feature rich and will continue to become better as development continues.

    Any chance of getting the “repeat” feature to repeat an event on say – the First Saturday of every month. – i.e. repeat monthly by day not date?
