Display calendars from on your site.

Basic usage

This WordPress plugin allows you to embed any calendar hosted on on your WordPress site.

Upon activation, the plugin creates a new post type named Calendars. Just create a new calendar, provide the UID of the calendar you wish to display in the calendar settings box, and that’s it !

You can leave the content area for this calendar empty, as it will be populated automatically with your events !

Your events are automatically inserted after your content. If you wish to control where your events will be listed, just use the shortcode [openagenda] in your content.


General settings can be found under the Calendar > Settings entry in the admin menu.

All data related to your API key or calendars can be found on

The settings are divided into two tabs: General and Integrations.

General settings

The General settings page provides the following settings :

  • Open Agenda API key : Your user API key. Providing your account API key is required for the plugin to work properly. It can be found in your account on
  • Allow for embedded content : If your events contain embedded content, tick this box to allow the corresponding HTML tags.
  • Load default stylesheets : The plugin provides very basic styling and depends heavily on your theme’s styles. Disable this to rely 100% on your theme styles.
  • Cache duration : For performance reasons, basic requests to Openagenda are temporarily kept in cache. This settings controls the time to keep them cached, in seconds.
  • Delete all calendar content on uninstall ? : controls whether you want to delete all your content on uninstall.
  • Delete all options on uninstall ? : controls whether you want to delete all your calendar settings on uninstall.

Integrations settings

The Integrations tab allows you to fine tune settings for various third party services the plugin uses.

OpenStreetmap integration settings :

  • Default map tiles link : This is the map tile used for the various maps displayed by the plugin.
  • Default map tiles attribution link : this is the default attribution link placed on OpenStreetMaps.

CloudImage integration settings :

  • CloudImage API key : If you wish to use CloudImage to serve your images, enter your API key here.

Permalinks settings

In the Permalinks settings, you can change the prefix for your calendar pages. You cannot leave this blank as your URLs will conflict with WordPress’ default pages and posts.

Customizer settings

In the Customizer, a new panel is available to house various display settings. For now only a main color setting is available.

Filter widget and shortcodes

To allow users to easily find relevant events, the plugin also provides a convenient filter widget. Place the widget in your sidebar or other widgetized area, pick a filter and tweak any additionnal settings in the widgets admin.

To integrate filters directly in your content instead of widget areas, the plugin also provide shortcodes.

Every shortcode listed here (except for [openagenda]) corresponds to a filter option in the widget.

Additionaly, shortcodes and widget filters have the same parameters, and every shortcode attribute corresponds to a widget filter setting.
