[Plugin: AmR iCal Events List] Images in events (4 posts)

    I don't know much about the ics standard, but I was wondering if it is at all possible to include images in the notes or body section when using something like outlook (and then publishing it online), and so have them show up using this plugin?

    Hi - in theory yes. Ie: the plugin handles html in the description in the ics file.
    However some calendar applications do not like to save and output the html in the icsfile. EG: google calendar tosses away the img hmtl and sometimes other html even if you go in and edit it.

    I am working on anotherplugin that will work with this one - it allows one to create events as posts (or custom post types in 3.0), and output an ics feed Thus one will have full html editing functionality available.

    Also note (at the risk of stating the obvious) the image must be a full url (not local) and publicly available, so that the link to it will work wherever the ics file is loaded.

    Try your ics file out here http://icalevents.anmari.com/calendar/
    Just add ?ics=yoururl to the query string.
