Blogger Calendar

If you don’t use and want more posts showing up in your calendar try appending ?max-results=999 to your feed URL. So it will look like:

So you’re not satisfied with just an archive list? You’ve perhaps switched to BETA and even the hierarchal menu just isn’t cool enough? Well, you’ve come to the right place.

This hack allows you to generate a calendar of your posts for people to browse inline in your blog! This hack works with either Blogger Classic or Blogger BETA and, best of all, is one of my easiest hacks to install yet!

Just go to the setup page. Enter your feed URL (do NOT use a FeedBurner feed, it tends to mess things up) and your blog title. Click generate. Follow the instructions.

Now, if you use mine (click the calendar next to the archives box in my sidebar) you’ll note that I have posts in the calendar going all the way back to forever it seems. Your probably only has this month’s. Well, that is just one extra hack, but there’s a catch — you have to be one of those who posts all blog entries to (I know, the BETA people no longer have a GM for that, I’m working on it.)

Go to the full feed setup page (I won’t steal your password!), enter your username and password in the upper form. Click Go. Go back to the setup page. Enter your username (and optional anchor tag) in the lower form. Click Go. Use the contents of your address bar as your feed URL for the calendar instead of your normal feed.

A translation of this page exists. Not sure on the language of that page, but thought I’d give them a link.

Google Calendar Feed Cleaner

Posted on

Google Calendar‘s feeds are not the most useful in the world. They are sorted by edit date instead of when they’re happening, and they’re only available in ATOM.

No longer. Using the extended feed information Google tacks into their calendar feed it is possible to create a clean, sorted feed with the start date as the pubDate. Just go to the Google Calendar Feed Cleaner and enter the URL to your calendar’s feed, select the format you want (XHTML for testing, RSS 2.0, or JSON(P) ), and enter the max items to be in the results (default 5). You will get a nice, clean feed of your Google Calendar data.
