Resolution

  1. While editing an editable region, click Insert Component in the WYSIWYG editor toolbar.
  2. In the Choose Component box, click Calendar Feed.
  3. Click Insert.
  4. Under Edit Component, enter information in the form fields.
    • Calendar ID - The unique ID associated with the Calendar Add-On from which you are wanting to show events. To find the ID associated with a Calendar Add-On, you can do so by logging into OU Add-Ons and selecting Calendars.
    • Events - The number of calendar events to display in the feed.
    • Style - The look and feel of the feed. Some feed styles are too large for side columns, remember to select a style that fits your page layout from the styles. For a more in-depth description of the various feed style, and some examples, visit our Calendar Feed Component page.
    • Category ID (Optional) - Specify a Category ID to only display events from a category. To find the ID associated with a calendar category, you can do so by logging into OU Add-Ons, selecting Calendars, and then clicking on the Manage Categories Icon next to the appropriate Calendar Add-On listed.
    • Open Links in New Tab - Open calendar feed event links in a new tab or window.
  5. When done, click Save.
  6. Save your page.
