All-in-One Event Calendar
[resolved] trouble with robots.txt when adding event to google calendar (4 posts)

    Hello...I am very new to this, so I apologize if I am posting in the wrong forum or asking idiotic questions. Any help is much appreciated!

    I just installed the AIOEC and added events. The problem is when I click the Add to Google Calendar button, I get this error message from Google:
    Could not fetch the url because robots.txt prevents us from crawling the url.

    I can't figure out how to access my robots.txt file, but it shows up like this (below) which I've gathered means it is blocking all bots...correct?

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /

    What's weird is that the previous Event Calendar plugin we used (google calendar plugin) did not have this issue. I'm wondering if that's because it was a google product.

    Thoughts or advice??

    Hi,

    I see you were able to fix this error on your website. I have the same issue. How did you fix it?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi,

    This link may help you: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/robotstxt-8

    In particular, you could try their suggestion of changing your privacy settings within the WP dashboard. We had one other user with this issue, and this solved it for them. Let me know if it works for you too.
