Hi again,
I tried all different short codes to add a Calendar page and all I got was a blank page!! Do I have to publish the page/post before seeing the calendar? I want to see the calendar first and tweak it then publish it.

At the very least, you’ll need to save that page as a draft.

Please see the Calendar doc if you run into any more trouble:

Josh I saved the page as draft and it didn’t work at all. Just to let you know I already had read the doc and tried all different short codes. Nothing worked. I even tried to find the answer in forum but no luck.
Please advise.

Did you try switching to another WordPress theme? You can switch for the admin only by using the theme test drive plugin. I recommend testing the calendar with 2011. Some themes can break the calendar.

Wrapping the shortcode in the [raw] shortcodes will often help too.
