How to Add a Calendar of Events to Your Membership Site

Do you want to host events or let members know what’s coming up on a calendar inside your membership site? Having a membership site calendar lets your students and members know what’s coming up, whether it’s live calls, new content, or webinars.

In this quick tutorial you’ll see how you can use the Simple Calendar plugin to integrate with an existing Google Calendar and share events inside your members area.

This plugin comes in a free version available in the WordPress directory, as well as a premium version available on their website.

Integrate With Google Calendars

You’ll want to create one Google Calendar per integrated calendar, and create your events there.

How to add a membership site calendar using Google Calendars

Style Your Calendar

Choose how to want to display your calendar: the two main options are Grid View and List View.

You can also change colors, and how many events will show up per page.

If you want more flexibility in how events show up, that’s where upgrading to their premium version unlocks these settings.

Embed The Calendar On Your Membership Pages

Finally, add the calendar shortcode to your AccessAlly pages. You can embed the shortcode in a sidebar, footer, or directly on a post or page.

You can also create multiple calendars for different groups, and keep everything organized by calendar that way.

Now you’ve got a membership site calendar that will stay synced up to your Google Calendar automatically.
