How do I embed Facebook Events into a page?

Question

I'm trying to manage one calendar of events. The "Events" pages on SS can be a little intimidating for some people so I would like to have people update events in a platform that is more familiar to them. If I could find a way of embedding Facebook Events into a page, that will solve all the problems. Then the client will have to just update Facebook.

If you have Facebook Account Admin Access Facebook should allow you to generate the required Event Page code (see link below). Back In Squarespace, add an 'Embed' Block to a page. In the 'Embed' Editor hit the '<>'on the right-hand side. Copy and Paste the code from FB to the 'Embed' editor. Click set. You may get a message saying something like 'live stream not available in Edit mode', so hit save. And I'd expect the Facebook feed to be on your page. If I'm overlooking something let me know. It's a good idea.

ASiegersMusic ~ Thank you for reviving this issue. I'm also scouting for some easier way for clients to update their own calendar or events on Squarespace. If I find anything out there I'll add a note to this thread. ~ Rebecca A.

Hello. Trying to integrate my Facebook Event Page into my Squarespace site. 

Squarespace says they don't offer an integration with FB.

My web guy found one but it only shows the graphic on the top event & then just lists the events. We really need the graphics to be there.

Has anybody used a plug-in or a code that works?

Thank you!!

Lauren

there are two solutions for this that I can think of. One is easier.

1. use one of the components Facebook provides as a code block drop-in. but if you don't like the way it looks/works, there's not much you can do about it.
https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/page-plugin/

2. Get your Facebook events synced into a Squarespace Collection. This would allow you to use any of the components you're familiar with (calendar, summary) to render the events on different pages of your site. At the moment, this requires a developer website and someone who knows what they're doing. I'm hoping I can do this for a site I'm building, and if I'm successful I'll try and make it into a plugin.

Hiebj,
Have you had any luck developing the plugin yet?
