    Hi b1dvbu17,

    almost any calendar program allows one to export an ics file. Even windows calendar will let you export.

    That said you are better off using a web based one like google calendar so that it minimises the administration load (the plugin will automatically refresh from the web url as often as you tell it too).

    And finally, I am finishing off a plugin that will allow one to use either posts (within a category) or custom post types as events to feed into this plugin. It will also generate an ical feed. It will integrate automatically with this plugin (does not need the feed).

    I am doing some final testing and will have a demo/test site up soon at http://icalevents.anmari.com/test/ - well it is up, but not configured and the plugin still needs some tweaks!

    Hi eric, the plugin that I am doing final testing on (mentioned above) will use the wordpress post (or custom post type) as the event URL. Events can be configured to be either posts or custom post types. More info later.

    For the record, windows calendar has afield to create a URL for an event. (Not that I am suggesting anyone use it on a regular basis! - was just testing to see what various editors did with the BYWEEKNO recurrence - answer - Not much. )

    Hi eric,

    you can as well use the free Sunbird calendar (Mozilla family), it also works with files stored online (via webcal:// or ftp:// or http:// - depending on what your server supports to allow Sunbird writing access to the .ics-file).
    Easiest method to begin: create a calendar locally, fill in your events and then do the "publish calendar"-thing, simply providing the path you want the calendar to be on the server.

    There is even a portable version of Sunbird, just do a quick search ...

    Good luck,
    talpa
