I have downloaded the files to create a custom layout for the Google Calendar widget. I loaded those files (html, css, js) into RV Storage but cannot get the calendar to load on the presentation screen. I have placed the css and js files in folders as suggested on the github site and I also placed the files in the same folder as the html and edited the html file for this change. Any help is appreciated. My main goal is to have the location on the same line as time and title.  Thanks!

I had a similar problem with my custom layout too. My was not showing in presentation because I linked the custom layout file using Storage icon inside the Calendar Widget. Thing is, if you do it this way, "/" get replaced with "%" and the links simply get broken (RV think this is not a problem, they think I do not link files properly). The solution was to get the file link directly from the RV Storage (chain/link icon) and paste it directly to the Calendar Widget.

Darius, thanks for the response. I saw some posts where you mentioned that issue so I tried it and it still didn't work. Do I have to insert the file link from RV storage into the widget.html to direct the code to the css and js files that are stored in the RV Storage? Thanks for your help.

No, the link goes into that custom layout field inside the Widget (at the bottom). I suspect something may not be quite right with your custom files. >>Here<< is the link to get the folder with custom files as I have in my RV Storage (all I have done there is removed the lined between calendar items). And this is the URL link I have pasted in the Calendar Widget: https://storage.googleapis.com/risemedialibrary-77d65575-178b-499c-a476-eb66c5424a89/Acme%20Sign%20C...

Take a look at these ans see what can you make from that.

Darius, this helped out tremendously. I probably didn't have all of the files I needed uploaded so seeing your setup really helped. The thing I'm trying to adjust is the spacing of the beginning time, Event Name, and Location (which I need to put on the same line as the first two. I am new to this so I'm having a tough time figuring out where I need to adjust the code to make this happen. Thanks for any help you can provide.
