I have a site that is on WP 3.0.4 and ATA 3.6 and I have a page set up with some iFrame code to display a google calendar within the framework of the site design. It is working, but when I go into the page via the WP admin, I cannot see the code in either the visual or HTML tab that loads the iFrame. Similarly, if I update the page, the iFrame functionality disappears off the live site.

I need to alter the code for something on the Google side. So I'm wondering if there is a better way to skin this cat.

My goal is to display the page as you see it now at: http://polkcitylibrary.com/calendar with the banner, nav and new scroll plugin at the top. No sidebars.

I'd love some opinions and experience to know if iFrame on a regular page is the right way to go with this, and what to do about the disappearing code or if I'd be better off making a new template and putting something in the Loop section to display the calendar. If template is better, please walk me through the process, I haven't done it in a long time and didn't easily find a step by step of the process in a quick forum search.

Thank you for all advice and input!

iframes generally get stripped out if you view the page in the visual editor after adding the iframe. There are some plugins that will allow you to use and iframe via the use of a shortcode. There are also plugins that are meant specifically embedding a Google calendar.
