My two guilds utilize the in-game addon of Group Calendar for scheduling raids and guild events along with being linked with each other and allies.  Is there any way to import this data into our Guildportal web site so members can sign up on the web site without having to manually list each raid/event on the website also?



So what is the speed of Dark?

This would be awsome.  I am a WoW'er and we use G.E.M. (guild event manager) It would be cool to not have to post on the web and in game and transfer all the stuff back and forth. Anyone know how to do this? or is it just a pipe dream?

Thanks for your time

There is an addon called gcal2gcal that may work for you. I have no knowledge of python or how to install the python google calendar API. But you'll have to set it up a page on a free website to host the script, then use an iframe to display it on your page.

I used to use GroupCalendar Web-export which I had a friend set up on awardspace.com because it's free and they allow php. This would make a calendar page independent of google calendar, but you can edit the page and style to suit your own needs.

Now I just display the google calendar directly on the page. I put the agenda on my home page and made a calendar tab to display the month view. You can't change the color style with google, but it's a quick and east way to display the information. The code to embed the calendar is obtained by clicking on "Settings" at the top, then "Calendars". Then click on the link to your calendar. Under "Calendar Details" you'll find "Embed this Calendar". Click on the link named "Customize the color, size, and other options". Add/remove what you want and copy the code into your guild portal page

I hope this information helps.
