CREATING A SCHOOL CALENDAR WITH WP SCHOOL CALENDAR LITE
Install and activate the plugin. Now we will see that on the left side of our desktop we have a new tab.
If we click and go to the ‘calendar settings’ section we will be able to modify several aspects such as the format of the day, position of the day, on which day the week starts, the default academic year and the weekly vacation days among other things.
CREATING A NEW DATE
To create a new date all we have to do is go to the ‘ADD NEW DATE’ tab and there we will be able to choose a title, the academic year and when the event starts and ends.
THE MAIN CALENDAR WILL BE DISPLAYED.
Once we have all the dates set in our calendar it is time to display the page with all the dates. When installing the plugin we must select a main page where to show the school calendar with all the dates. If we don’t have any we will create a new page and select it in the plugin settings. Now if we go to visit the page we will see something like this:
