amr ical events lists
[resolved] Does the paid amr events editor create event posts of ICS feed events? (5 posts)

    Hi anmari,

    I am looking for a plugin that will import an .ics feed and create individual event posts as well. I'm not sure I found anything on your site that stated this explicitly, and the only plugin I know of that does this (All-in-One) is the one I'm trying to replace for a client, due to it being an ongoing problem with plugin conflicts and AJAX issues.

    Thanks!
    Sonia

    Hi Sonia,

    with the free version one can display events from ics file.
    The paid version adds in the ability to either just display events created in wordpress OR combine / intermingle manually created events with events from the ics file (or multiple ics files).

    "Importing" ics files is not as simple as it sounds - ics files can consist of multiple sections being modifications to files for certains dates with recurring items etc - the complexities of trying to represent that in wordpress posts are not trivial - not as simple as just displaying the data per dates.

    Hi anmari,

    Thanks for your response! That is what I thought/feared. The only plugin right now that achieves this is the All-in-One Calendar by Time.ly, and their system is too bloated and broken to be of use right now.

    The recurring events are definitely tricky, and I understand why that would be a considerable effort. Thanks for your time!

    Sonia,

    I'm in the same boat with several clients that want to use Google Cal to "feed" the calendar on their site.

    In the past I have used "Stout Google Calendar" http://wordpress.org/plugins/stout-google-calendar/ which is old and no longer supported, but so far it does still work. I use it on this site to display a full agenda (you can set it up to display other views):

    The issue I have now is getting a Google calendar feed into a widget. It can be done with Stout Google Calendar, but the styling is not to my liking. So I started hunting for other solutions. I too found and tested the Time.ly plugin which has great potential but I ended up coming to the same conclusion as you ...bloated and didn't function correctly.

    Anyway, not sure if Stout Google Calendar will solve your problem but figured I would try and help when I read your post here.

    Good luck!

    I failed to mention that I have been able to use "amr ical events lists" to display a simple agenda widget fed from a Google ics feed on another site. Thanks anmari!
