[resolved] widget not updating events list (5 posts)

    I activated this plugin. I added the widget to my sidebar. It seemed to pick up on all events from all of the calendars I specified. However, when I went to change an event, or add one, or delete one, that change is not reflected in the widget. What am I doing wrong? Is there a cache of some kind. I have the latest version of this plugin.

    Please help. Thanks.

    it could be google being slow, or could be the cacheing - the post will show you how to check /adjust

    Solved!

    In this case, the google performance was actually quite good.

    However, it turned out to be the cache refresh setting in the article you pointed out. I was able to find it in the WordPress dashboard under 'list types' in the 'iCal Events List' settings panel. It was set to 24 hours so I reset it to refresh pretty often. I am doing a web page for some high school music teachers and if there isn't a pretty quick response they just assume it is not working (even if it is) so I so I set the cache refresh interval pretty low.

    They (and I) absolutely love the events list widget and I am in the process of trying out the other features.

    Thank you!!

    Hi svogt0511,

    you can also choose to have the refresh icon show in the front, so they can manually refresh the cache too (strike a balance between too frequent maybe unnecessary refreshes and instant gratification).
