If you want to show a shortcode in forum post - use [ instead of [ as you write it so you can see the shortcode 😉

Hi
Can you tell me how do people view the calendar once there are events in it?

There's two shortcodes you can use on a page or post

[church_admin type=calendar] - for an interactive calendar
[church_admin type=calendar-list] - for a list of events

There are more details on the "Shortcodes" button at the top of the Church Admin Menu page on your site.

If you are finding the plugin useful, please subscribe to the app - it's free for your congregation to use and only £9.99pm for a church subscription - free int'l bank transfers with Revolut

This Calendar is meant only for certain people... not for the public. Is this possible?

You could make the page password protected.

On the page where you put the shortcode on the right hand side there is a box with publishing options near the top.

If you click the "Edit" link for Visibility options, you can check "Password Protected" and add a password. Then "Ok" and don't forget to Update/Publish the page.

Hope that helps!

Hi again
thanks for all your help so far!
I did everything you said and it worked up to a point... but...

When I cleared out my history and went back in to test it again as if I was an outsider.... the page asked for the password I just set up which is good, but then the next screen wanted more login details... specifically, my Word Press login.

How can people without a word press account view the calendar?

Have you updated the Church Admin plugin? - forced login is now an option for that shortcode from v1.3920.
Please make sure the shortcode doesn't have loggedin=true in it as well!
