  6. You get a screen like the one below. Experiment with the different views (Week/Month/Agenda) and which menu items you want to turn off (like Title , Nav buttons, the Print icon, etc.). You will probably need to experiment with the size as well depending upon where on your site you want the calendar viewed. Inside a Page/Post it will probably need to be around 400 pixels wide.

  7. When you have it like you want it click the “Update HTML” button on the top right, then open the page/post/widget in the editor where you are inserting the calendar.
