    Our organization uses Google Calendar, and embeds the code on our calendar page. Here is the code:

    <iframe style=”border-width: 0;” src=”https://calendar.google.com/calendar/b/1/embed?showTitle=0&amp;showCalendars=0&amp;mode=AGENDA&amp;height=600&amp;wkst=1&amp;bgcolor=%23FFFFFF&amp;src=pgsfl.website%40gmail.com&amp;color=%235229A3&amp;ctz=America%2FNew_York&#8221; width=”100%” height=”600″ frameborder=”0″ scrolling=”no”></iframe>

    It’s been working all the time on all browsers. Now it does not work consistently. The calendar

    • Works in Chrome
    • Fails in Microsoft Edge
    • Fails in Chrome in incognito mode (?!)
    • A user reported that the calendar displayed on his PC but not on his laptop. I didn’t know to ask him if he used the same browser on both devices.

    It’s that last fail (incognito Chrome) that suggests it might be something in Weaver or WordPress and cookies.

    Can you explain what you mean by does not work….

    I can see the calendar fine in Edge (chrome based version)

    Does not work” means it does not render the code. Instead, it displays a white box where the calendar should appear in 2 of the 3 browsers.

    The embedded code works sometimes, but not all times. I just now repeated the tests, did screen captures, then created the video.

    I brushed it off the first time I heard the problem. I, too, couldn’t duplicate the problem. However, someone else reported that it didn’t render in Edge. I confirmed that statement. Then I tried it in the Chrome incognito mode – and the code failed to rendered there, too.

    Maybe this 17-second link will work: https://youtu.be/AgQlxbIISIc It shows what is rendered in the three browsers.

    Well, the issue does not appear to be consistent.

    For me, it works in Edge, but does not work in Chrome normal mode….

    But in Chrome where it does not show up, the HTML is in the page, so it must have to do with something about the content and how the browser tries to render it.

    Using the browser developer tool, I copied the iframe HTML from the page that does not render and from the page that does render, and the HTML appears to be exactly the same.

    If the theme was doing something, it would affect the content. The content is there and the same, just the browser is not rendering it.

    I think you need to ask Google why their calendar code is not rendering in their browser.

    How are you inserting the iframe HTML?

    FYI: This is a Google problem, and has nothing to do with the Weaver Theme.

    Per your suggestion, I repeated the question to them. Their answer was “…there’s an issue at the moment for all embedded calendars viewed from the US. It has been escalated and we are waiting for updates.”  (https://support.google.com/calendar/thread/111125441/why-doesn-t-my-calendar-render-all-the-time)
