CCSF Web Site (CMS)
You can display a Google Calendar in a CMS web page. Here's an example.
To display the calendar, you'll need to copy some code that Google posts explicitly for this into a special CMS component: the snippet. So, the first thing you'll need to do is make sure that you get the snippet component in the page where you want the calendar to display.

Open your Google Calendar and click Setting. Click the Calendar tab and click the name of the calendar that you want:
The settings for that calendar open up.
Scroll down to the Embed code section.
Place your cursor inside the Embed Code window:
Right-click (Control-click on the Mac) and choose Select All
Back in your CMS page, add the snippet component where you want the calendar to appear.
Edit the snippet and Paste the embed code into it: Right-click (Control-click on the Mac) and choose Paste.
