I've noticed on help that it mixes Sitebuilder Plus instructions with Websitebuilder. Isn't there a way that these two can be separated? I am trying to place a calendar on a Websitebuilder site that hasn't gone live yet (moving domain name), but I see nothing when I insert Google Calendar URL for that page. I've also noticed this in several other areas. Maybe it's because I'm used to it, but Sitebuilder Plus was/is a much easier program to understand and learn.

Nope, it didn’t help a bit. There is no form for a calendar. I did read on another page that you could bring in a Google calendar in html format. I thought all I needed to do this was copy the URL and paste it on my page. Nothing showed up under preview, or on the working page. I’ve also noticed that individual pages are restricted to length. I have a news letter that was 19 pages long, and I had room for 3. Sitebuilder Plus didn’t/doesn’t have this problem. View https://www.ka4cpo.com, look on the right and find the link for Comet Courses. You’ll notice that it goes a long way down the page.

If you paste the URL as a text link, then people should be able to click this link and be brought into Google Calendar to see the calendar you are sharing; however, if you are wanting an actual calendar to show on your website, this would need to be done via HTML.

It is recommended to restrict your page length for loading purposes and general customer experience (people are generally only willing to scroll so much before they leave a page). In regard to your statement regarding page length, the opposite is actually true. Sitebuilder has a page length limit that I've seen many customers run into. Website Builder, to my knowledge, does not. At least, I've never seen it and I've seen some incredibly long pages.

If you looked at my site at ka4cpo.com, and searched for Comet Courses on the right side links, you will see that Sitebuilder Plus doesn't restrict me to length. On Websitebuilder I am running into a grey box at the bottom of the page and not having much luck in putting items in there, such as a 19 page newsletter.

I did look at that page. Sitebuilder Plus does restrict you in length, you just don't have a long enough page to hit that limit.
On Website Builder, the grey box is the space after the page. To add length to the page, you simply have to add a new section or drag the page down to make it longer.

That sounds easy enough. Thank you. In the meantime, I thought it might be easier if I had a jpg. of each page and put that in separately. I'll play with it later.

Hello,

A Google calendar can be added by getting the code and embedding that in the website via an HTML element. The instruction for adding HTML to WebsiteBuilder are here:

This worked. Now all I have to do is to get Google to give me my 3 other email address back so I can have the right title on the page.
