Hello,

I have followed the installation instructions successfully and now have the Widgets namespace.  The part I am stuck on is how do I install each individual widget?  From what I understand, I have to create a page in the Widget namespace for each widget and paste some code on that page.  Where do I get that code?  I am trying to install the Google Calendar widget but the source code I am given to paste is the following..

<noinclude>
This widget allows you to add '''[http://www.google.com/calendar/embedhelper Google Calendar]''' widget to your wiki page.

It was originally created by [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:Sergey_Chernyshev Sergey Chernyshev] for [http://www.techpresentations.org/Conferences#Current_.26_Upcoming_conferences upcoming conference calendar] on TechPresentations.org

== Using this widget ==
For information on how to use this widget, see [https://www.mediawikiwidgets.org/Google_Calendar widget description page on MediaWikiWidgets.org].

== Copy to your site ==
To use this widget on your site, just install [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Widgets MediaWiki Widgets extension] and copy the [{{fullurl:{{FULLPAGENAME}}|action=edit}} full source code] of this page to your wiki as page '''{{FULLPAGENAME}}'''.

That just creates a nice looking about page.  I've spent the last 45 minutes trying to search and find instructions but I couldn't find anything.

Thank you very much in advance for your assistance.

Now when you copied the code you have into http://www.yourwiki.com/Widget:Google_Calendar you can use the code like this on regular pages of your wiki to include the calendars:

{{#widget:Google Calendar
|id=p2m2av9dhrh4n...@group.calendar.google.com
|color=2952A3
|id=u...@holiday.calendar.google.com
|color=B1440E
|title=NYCResistor, US Holidays
}}

(sample code copied from here: https://www.mediawikiwidgets.org/Google_Calendar)

Hope this helps.

Hi Sergey,

Thanks for the help.

When I use the same code or my own calendar id i get an error message that says, 'Fatal exception of type "Error"'.
