I want to show an availability calendar on my website. I want this availability calendar to match the availability calendar I use and frequently update on a website where I pay to be a subscriber.

You can view the availability calendar I am trying to dynamically display on MY OWN WEBSITE (which is in the very early stages of development):

Source of availability calendar:
http://www.proz.com/profile/855013
About halfway down the page on the left.

I also want to also be able to click a link to make a popup calendar with more information, just as on the webpage linked above. That would give me something like this:
http://www.proz.com/?sp=calendar&entity_id=855013&float=1&visitor=1

You can see EXACTLY what I am trying to do by viewing my website at:
http://www.norwenglish.net/blank_page.php

On this page I was successfully able to copy my availability calendar (using just source code), but of course, it doesn't dynamically update. It is now stuck in June, more specifically on the date when I did this, June 7. I am looking for a way to do something that looks EXACTLY like the above, but dynamically changing to reflect the days date, and the updates to my availability which I do almost daily on that website. I want to avoid having to update my availability on my own website as well.

Any suggestions to how I can implement this will be greatly appreciated, and it DOES NOT need to be perfect - I don't care if there is 5% or something of people who use browsers where this won't work.

Possible to do this with Iframes?

Would I be violating some kind of copyright law, based on copying the content from www.proz.com, where I pay to be a member?

The following code always bounces me away from my website:

<iframe src="http://www.proz.com/?sp=calendar&entity_id=855013&float=1&visitor=1" width="25%" height="25%"  

scrolling="yes">

</iframe>

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
if (top.frames.length != 0 ) {  top.location = self.document.location; }
</script>

this code in the head of your proz.com site is called a framebreaker, (one of several types) so that it will not appear as content in an external site, including yours

So I see, and understand!

What a shame! :(

Plan B - I will need to "manually dynamically" update both my www.proz.com availability as well as a Google calendar and/or Windows Live Calendar!

Thanks for your explanation and help!

"Solved!" (kind of)

that was not my intent, the javascript framebreaker is editable out, if you edit the site yourself just comment out that script
or if the proz site is one of the fill-in-blanks check the security settings for an option to 'protect' the content and uncheck that option,
or contact proz.com where it is your folder on their site and your site, they may provide for suitable attribution 'aavailability calendar from [link to]proz.com' access to the calendar
or check the faq at proz.com there are often other pages (where you include your id etc) for linking to site resources from outside sites, we provide 'util.php' that can be accessed offsite for subscribers to include 'our' resources in 'their' page,

still no solution, and no reply from ProZ support! :( It appears this is a lost cause, so I will likely implement a separate Google or MS calendar for my website.

I am currently expanding my operation from freelance to translation, to a Scandinavian Translation Agency, and I really want to implement the calendar discussed in this thread.

I want to put the calendar from this page (http://www.proz.com/profile/855013) and show it on this page, which is currently under development with Joomla!

http://www.linguatek.co.uk/

This calendar is perfect for showing my availability. It doesn't necessarily need to link to the data in the calendar on the first page.

Does anybody know of any calendar modules (preferably Joomla! modules) which have similar functionality and similar appearance as the calendar shown on my www.proz.com profile page?

Any ideas would be appreciated.
