    Hello all,

    Is it possible, please, to embed an iCal calendar into a website? It seems you can do this with Google calendars but not iCal ones. Is this the case?

    An editable, subscribed-type calendar? Do you mean an iCloud calendar?

    That part I get. What I'm asking is if you want the calendar at the website to be subscribed/synced to an iCloud calendar or another cloud service other than Google. Or, do you want to it to display a fixed, unchangeable calendar such as an exported ".ics" file?

    I would be interested in knowing this as well (displaying a calendar that is "synced" to an iCloud calendar).

    The lack of Wordpress plugins claiming to be able to do this makes me think that it must be problematic and in my own experience subscribing to an iCloud calendar in a Google account was sketchy when I tried it.

    You could theoretically, in a Google calendar account, subscribe to an iCloud calendar and then use the Google calendar feed at the website as shown in the example in post #3 above. Even if it works perfectly the Google version isn't updated instantly as it only checks these subscribed-calendar feeds every so often.

    I'd say skip iCloud and put the calendar that you want on the website at Google and use their embed code. If you're using Wordpress there are other plugin options for displaying Google calendars.
