    Default Display a Public Google Calendar on Mobile

    Does anyone know how to do this:

    "Include PHP or javascript on your mobile site that reads your calendar through GData API and displays it in a simple, concise way that fits your mobile site style."

    That's the answer given on the Google forum for how to display a mobile calendar.

    I'd really rather have a Wordpress plugin.

    Thanks!

    Hi Coast are you saying you want to display the calendar within a mobile version of Wordpress?

    It seems there are versions of the calender suitable for mobile:

    http://www.google.com/support/mobile...n&answer=65923

    Google Calendar for mobile browsers offers a number of great features:

    - The interface is automatically optimized for the device you're using.
    - Keep track of your schedule, without having to sync your mobile device with your computer.
    - Add events and invite guests.

    Just go to http://www.google.com/calendar in your phone's web browser to access Calendar
    (Google Apps users can go to http://calendar.google.com/a/your_domain/m, replacing 'your_domain' with your actual domain name).

    Supported mobile devices
    At this time, Google Calendar is available in two mobile versions: a basic version and an optimized version available for Android, iPhone and Palm webOS devices. If you have an Android, iPhone or Palm webOS device, Google Calendar allows you to add, edit, and delete events and event details, as well as respond to events. The basic version currently supports viewing your calendar(s) and adding new events via 'Quick Add.'

    Using Calendar in the basic XHTML version
    Unless you are on an Android, iPhone or Palm webOS device, you'll automatically be directed to the basic version of Google Calendar for mobile browsers. This version currently supports viewing your calendar(s) in the Agenda view and adding new events via 'Quick Add.' Note: Quick Add functionality is currently only available in the English interface. It's not possible to edit or remove events on your calendar(s) in this version.

    • Calendar on your Phone

      You can now access your Google Calendar account from your mobile phone! Just visit mobile.google.com/calendar/ with your phone’s web browser and once you’re logged in, you’ll see your list of upcoming events with date and time information in an easy-to-browse format.

    Thanks, Gogo. I will take a look at the plugin. I think the second one requires you to log in, which would be a big of a disadvantage for displaying a public calendar on a mobile site.

    Hi Coast

    Are you already displaying the calendar on a pc page and in addition you want to show a mobile version of it on mobile version of the same page in Wordpress?

    Or is the site mobile-only?

    If it is always data from the same page it might be possible, even easier, to just grab the data without the api. I have to look at this sooner or later - I need to mobilise a calendar that is public but not mobile-friendly.

    I am testing the api on a mobile site at the moment and am going to use it for restaurants and mot/ servicing placed.

    A number of work-type Android applications have successfully migrated to the tablet form: Microsoft Office-like apps; printer-sharing apps; document-scanning apps.

    Pedros your post is off-topic. Please open your own thread.
