I have two suggestions for improving the calendar widget.
Members of my organization rely on a Google calendar that we previously set up. Although it did not work well, Wordpress has a plugin that allows you to automatically populate your calendar with events from a Google calendar. We would like to have the calendar on our website interface directly with our Google calendar.
I understand there is value in being able to see events occurring during more than one month, but our members have commented that they do not like the multi month layout. We would like an option to be able to set the calendar to display only a single month.
